Hong Kong Football Association will let fans in again


The Hong Kong Football Association (HKFA) has successfully restarted matches despite the pandemic from this late September. Since then, many fans expressed their eagerness to attend the stadiums to watch the matches. HKFA understands the needs of our fans and has been closely communicating with the government.

We have been providing different solutions in order to let fans in while in compliance with public health safety. After rounds of discussions, HKFA announced that we could let fans in again for matches starting from 7 November (this Saturday). According to the recommendations given by the government, the stands will be opened, and the maximum number of seats occupied would be less than 75% of the stadium capacity and no more than 4 consecutive seats in the same row could be occupied.

The first match that will be reopened for the public will be a group match of the Sapling Cup, which will be held at 3pm on 7 November (this Saturday) at Yuen Long Stadium, with RCFC vs Kwoon Chung Southern. And the second match will be held at Mong Kok Stadium at 5:30pm on the same day with Happy Valley vs Eastern Long Lions.

For the matches starting from 7 November (this Saturday), the tickets will be available for purchase on the match day at the ticket office of the stadium. The ticket price will be $80 and the concession ticket price will be $30 (only a limited amount of concession tickets will be available). Tickets will be available for purchase from 90 minutes before the match kick-off and until the start of the second half of the match.

HKFA follows the guideline and suggestions from the government and our Medical Committee in implementing the safety and hygiene measures at the stadiums accordingly. While entering the stadiums, fans need to do temperature checks and submit health declaration forms and wear masks properly inside the stadium. In addition, eating will be prohibited yet drinking in cups and paper containers will be allowed. In order to maintain personal hygiene, disposable cups will not be provided in the stadiums. Our Association will review and announce the hygiene measurement according to the latest development of the situation from time to time.
