Local bars feel the pinch after dismal Sevens turnout

Jan 31st, 2017 | By | Category: Radio News, Sport

Changes to Wellington’s Sevens Rugby Tournament have hit local businesses hard.


Bar owners say moving the final from Saturday night to a Sunday and getting rid of the carnival like street party on Courtney Place has seriously affected revenue.


Ticket sales for the tournament have plummeted since changes were made in a bid to control crowd behaviour.


Director of Courtney Place bars Edison’s and Boston, Jordan Mills, says the sevens weekend is not nearly as profitable as it used to be.
