Hosted by the Hong Kong Football Club since 1999, the HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens is long established as the world’s leading annual seven-a-side football tournament.

Held over three days at the end of May, the event features a 16-team Main Tournament as well as a 10-team Masters Tournament.

The Main Tournament is renowned as a showcase for the stars of tomorrow with the likes of England internationals Gary Cahill, Glen Johnson, David Bentley, Jonny Evans of Northern Ireland, Scotland’s Sean Maloney and Barry Bannan, as well as Marc Albrighton, Anton Ferdinand, Jack Grealish, Gabriel Agbonlahor, Nathan Baker, Ciaran Clark and Andreas Weimann having all previously featured.

England’s Aston Villa are the most successful side in the Main Tournament having lifted the trophy on five occasions and the English Premier League side will return this year along with Leicester City, Newcastle United, 2015 runners-up West Ham United and Stoke City, as well as Japan’s Kashima Antlers and New Zealand’s Wellington Phoenix.

Kashima, who reached the quarter-finals on their last appearance in 2004, are the first Japanese representative to feature at the HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens since 2008 after compatriots Urawa Red Diamonds, who claimed back-to-back Main Tournament wins in 2005 and 2006 before winning the Shield two years later.

Hong Kong’s USRC – BTS, meanwhile, will defend their Masters Tournament title in 2016 having beaten Wallsend Boys Club in the final last year.

Restricted to player over 35, the likes of Peter Beardsley, Teddy Sheringham, Andy Cole, Matt Le Tissier, Des Walker, Jurgen Klinsmann and Jari Litmanen have all featured at Hong Kong Football Club.
