Double date by HK officials robs the fans

I've watched the Hong Kong Football Association stumble through the past 25 years with no foresight or feelings for local fans. Once again I see they have let the public down by scheduling the AC Milan visit on the same weekend as the HKFC Soccer 7s.

Why on earth could they not have found another date? This now means local fans will be deprived of either watching AC Milan or the exciting new prospects from Manchester United, Arsenal, Rangers, Celtic and Aston Villa.

Can the HKFA please explain this latest disaster as fans in this city deserve to know?
