THE Hong Kong women's soccer team are hoping to take part in next year's Asian Games in Hiroshima, which serves as a qualifier for the 1995 World Cup in Sweden. Veronica Chan, president of the Hong Kong Ladies Football Association, said she has applied to the Amateur Sports Federation and Olympic Committee to include a women's soccer team in the territory's contingent. Although she knows the ASF & OC's strict stance on the number of team sports from Hong Kong at the Games, Chan is hoping that women's soccer can still be included. Said Chan: ''I've written a letter to the Olympic Committee asking them to accept us. ''We are ranked fifth in Asia and need to finish in the top three at the next Asian Games to have a chance to reach the World Cup. ''I hope that factor will influence the Olympic Committee to look at our application favourably.'' Earlier this year, ASF & OC president A. de O. Sales discouraged team sports from applying for the Hiroshima Games because of the general disparity in quality between Hong Kong and other Asian countries. Hong Kong finished fifth at the recent Asian Championship in Malaysia. Chan, whose body is affiliated to the Hong Kong Football Association, said there are four women's soccer clubs in the territory, but this will increase next year with the promotion of various under-17 players to the senior ranks. According to Chan, the top two teams at next year's Games qualify for Sweden, while the third-placed team will be involved in a play-off with the Oceania winners.
