Football in Hong Kong
It should come as no surprise that football is the most popular sport in this former British colony. The sheer number of activities and the considerable administrative influence that the tiny territory, now once more under Chinese rule, has exerted on international football over the last 30 years bear testimony to football's standing in Hong Kong. Persons such as honorary FIFA member Henry Fok, his son Timothy (a long-standing member of the Organising Committee for the Olympic Football Tourna)and long-serving AFC General Secretary Lee Wai Tong are also the embodiment of a healthy footballing scene, as shown by the number of surprise results that Hong Kong have recorded in Asian qualifying matches.
The Goal Project
On 22 September 2004, the Goal Bureau endorsed plans to renovate the headquarters of the Hong Kong Football Association. The building has not been renovated since it was built 25 years ago. Structural changes will open up additional office space and greatly enhance working conditions for the staff of the association.
