The yearly Emirates Airlines Rugby Sevens is quickly approaching scheduled to take place in Dubai between 30 November and 2 December at the Sevens Stadium outside Dubai.
It is a great event and even if you are not into Rugby, it is worth going even to experience the atmosphere surrounding the event. On Friday you will see people turn up in fancy dress outfits and normally it is quite a party on the stands.
Emirates Airlines is the main sponsor of the event and this morning it was announced that you can now use your Emirates Skywards Miles to buy tickets for the event.
Tickets can be bought at the following rates:
One-day ticket: 8,500 Miles
Season ticket: 13,500 Miles
Reserved seating: 19,000 Miles
While I would always recommend you use your miles for booking flights or upgrades, this might be a good way to use your miles if you have a small amount sitting on your account with no prospect of earning more miles.
