We must advise you that we have decided to cancel this year’s Bangkok International Rugby Sevens Tournament as a sign of respect for our Thai colleagues and their mourning of the death of their King.
It has become increasingly apparent that the King’s death has affected Thai society quite deeply and for us to carry on to hold the tournament would create irreparable harm between the tournament and the Thai people.
It is a time of great sadness for the Thai people and we want to respect their mourning and give them time to grieve.
It is with deep sadness that we acknowledge the passing of the King of Thailand. We offer our deepest condolences to the people of Thailand in the loss of their revered Monarch.
Thailand will be observing at least a 100-day mourning period and no events or ceremonies may take place during this time. The Bangkok International Rugby Sevens Tournament falls within this 100 day period.
We will be respecting our Thai colleagues and friends during their mourning period and please let us have some time to work through all of the implications that our decision brings.
