History: A Legacy of Rugby Excellence

The HKFC 10s rugby tournament first took to the pitch in 1986 to mark the centenary anniversary of the Hong Kong Football Club (HKFC). With their established history as the original host of the Hong Kong Sevens from 1976 to 1981, the club was no stranger to staging major rugby events.

Quickly gaining momentum, the HKFC 10s soon carved out a name for itself as the world’s premier 10-a-side rugby tournament, drawing elite players and top teams from across the globe.

Now an annual highlight in the international rugby calendar, the HKFC 10s continues to attract international stars of the game to rugby’s mecca; as the tournament’s rich history grows year after year.

HKFC 10s Through the Years

The HKFC 10s has seen an evolution in its participants list, showcasing its dynamic nature and ability to adapt over time. Since the tournament’s first edition in 1986, the tournament’s size has shifted, reflecting its expanding appeal and the varied number of teams eager to compete.

The tournament has been championed by notable title sponsors over the years:

  • Steinlager (1987-89)
  • Carlsberg (1990-98)
  • DHL (2003)
  • PCCW (2004)
  • GFI supported the tournament for a remarkable stretch from 2006 to 2019.
  • From 2023, Tradition has taken the mantle, infusing new energy into the event in the post COVID-19 era.

Advancing the Competition

Throughout its rich history, the HKFC 10s has continued to evolve. One of its most significant recent advancements is the introduction of the women’s competition in 2023. Won by RKS Legal Samurai featuring England stars Tamara Taylor, Rochelle “Rocky” Clark & Abi Burton, this marked a turning point in the tournament’s history & underlined its dedication to promote and celebrate rugby for all.
