NEvent: Hong Kong Soccer Sevens

[22/05/09] 

As in the Hong Kong Soccer Sevens

Undoubtedly, Hong Kong’s most popular sporting event of the year is the Rugby Sevens. That’s great…for rugby fans, but what about those of us who are football fans? Who else would understand how gutted you still are about Maradona’s controversial “Hand of God” goal in the 1986 FIFA World Cup finals, when he got away with scoring a handball?

 



You can chew the fat with your mates at the annual Hong Kong Soccer Sevens (May 29 – 31). During this three-day tournament, a total of 32 teams from the world over will compete in two competitions: professional players in the Main and ex-professionals in the Masters. In each competition, four pools of four teams will hustle and tussle in round-robin matches, before knocking each other out for the Cup, Shield and Plate trophies. Watch out for the U.K. teams, such as West Ham United, Glasgow Rangers and Glasgow Celtic. However, the question on everyone’s mind is, will the defending champions Aston Villa claim their third straight title this year?

Take a back seat, Ronaldo…just for the weekend.
