Each year the tournament continues to grow and in 2013 between 7,000 - 9,000 spectators are expected to visit HKFC over tournament weekend to watch the action.

Once again in 2013, the tournament will consist of Main and Masters competitions, as well as a Junior Soccer Sevens for local youngsters.

SOCCER SEVENS HISTORY

The HKFC International Soccer Sevens first started in 1999 at Hong Kong Football Club using a seven-a-side format - a style of play that encourages the most exciting elements of the game and free-flowing attacking football. 

Now in its 15th year, the Soccer Sevens has established itself as THE best seven-a-side tournament of its kind in the world. With its two-tiered format spectators can delight in the skills of some of the legends of the game as well as young stars of the future.

The Masters tournament has been host to world-class players such as Jurgen Klinsmann, Andy Cole, Rob Lee, Matt Le Tissier, Peter Beardsley, John Barnes, Andreas Moller, Teddy Sheringham and Chris Waddle. In 2013 we look forward to welcoming yet more legends of the beautiful game.

The Soccer Sevens has proven to be a successful platform for nurturing young players. The tournament prides itself on being a showcase for many of the stars of the future. Such talent includes the likes of Gabriel Agbonlahor (Aston Villa & England), Anton Ferdinand (West Ham, Sunderland & QPR), Shaun Maloney (Celtic, Aston Villa, Wigan & Scotland) and Glen Johnson (Chelsea, Liverpool & England) to name just a few.

In previous years the tournament has seen healthy competition from some of the world's best-supported clubs, including Manchester United, Arsenal, PSV Eindhoven, Ajax, Boca Juniors, Liverpool, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Newcastle and Scotland's Celtic and Rangers.
