The HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens is the world’s best seven-a-side football tournament where fans can see the stars of tomorrow and some of the legends of the game in one exciting event and the 18th edition will take place this year between Friday 26 May and Sunday 28 May.

 

Last year Aston Villa beat West Ham United 2-0 in the Main Cup final to win the title for a record sixth time, with fellow English sides Leicester City and Stoke City claiming the respective Shield and Plate titles. In the Masters event for players aged over 35, Citi All Stars secured a first-ever Cup title with a 3-1 victory over 2015 champions USRC in the final.

 

Japan’s Kashima Antlers and New Zealand’s Wellington Phoenix will return to the HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens this year to join French Ligue 1 club Marseille, German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen and Italian Serie A outfit Cagliari. Scotland’s Rangers, defending Cup champions Aston Villa, West Ham United and Leicester City complete the most diverse line-up in the annual tournament’s 19-year history.

 

“In the past few years we have said we are keen to diversify the event and get participation from more leagues around the world,” said tournament director Chris Plowman. “With Marseille, Bayer Leverkusen and Cagliari we will see that come to fruition with representation from the top divisions of the French, German and Italian leagues for the very first time at the HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens. It’s going to be fascinating to see them take on the English, Scottish and Asian teams.”
