As it moves into its second decade, our partnership with the World Rugby Sevens Series remains at the heart of the sport, helping communities around the world to experience the extraordinary spectacle of rugby sevens.

Rugby Sevens reflects many of HSBC’s core values. The sport brings together fans and players from all over the world in a vibrant celebration of cultural diversity. Rugby Sevens is also driving the growth of women’s rugby. HSBC played a key role in securing the increased number of women’s tournaments, an exciting change that will bring long-term benefits for both the men’s and the women’s game once the Series schedule returns to normal.

We also have a global rugby grassroots programme which aims to take the health, wellbeing and societal benefits of rugby to more people in more markets. Over 502,900 children across the globe have been through these grassroots programmes over the last 10 years.
