Hong Kong should bid to stage the Barclays Asia Trophy again, says Hong Kong Football Federation chairman Brian Leung Hung-tak. Leung was at the Hong Kong Stadium when enthusiastic fans began entering the venue at 4pm yesterday, two hours before the first match, between Portsmouth and Fulham. 'The tournament has been well received by the fans ... and there is no reason why we should not go for the next one in two years,' Leung said. Only 4,000 fans watched the final in Bangkok, where the bi-annual event was held two years ago. But yesterday's match attracted 37,000 spectators, while Friday's final has already been announced as a full house for the 40,000 capacity stadium. The last time there was a full-house for soccer matches was for the visits of Liverpool and Real Madrid in 2003. Leung, who took over last month, said there was a lot to learn from the English. 'They were very professional, from organisation and promotion to every single detail,' he said.
