Are you Hong Kong Qualified?

If you can answer yes to EITHER of the following questions, you are officially qualified to play professional rugby in Hong Kong:

  • Were you born in Hong Kong?
  • Were any of your parents or grandparents born in Hong Kong?

The Hong Kong Rugby Union are currently seeking young, talented, Hong Kong-qualified rugby players from around the world to join a professional rugby set up in the City of Lights. Selected players will have the opportunity to play in a highly competitive semi-professional league, make rugby their full time job, train amongst a team of experienced athletes in an elite sporting environment and possibly be selected to represent the National Hong Kong team. 

In this rugby-obsessed city, internationally known for the biggest 7s tournament in the World Rugby Circuit, the spotlight is well and truly on the National XVs team as they prepare for the Rugby World Cup Repechage in November, which could ultimately see them heading to Japan for the Rugby World Cup 2019. You could be part of the action.

The Land of Opportunity

Hong Kong is a city of 7.4 million people, nearly 8,000 skyscrapers and an infinite number of business opportunities. Hong Kong’s rugby community is sponsored and supported by many big names in the corporate world and players regularly rub shoulders with the city’s high flyers at rugby events. 

Multiple players have established their own businesses such as restaurants and coaching clinics or developed careers as lawyers, bankers and pilots alongside rugby. Not only could this opportunity fulfill your rugby dreams, it could also be the move that launches your future career.
