Hong Kong Football Association (HKFA)

The Hong Kong Football Association (HKFA) is the governing body for football in Hong Kong. Established in 1909, it is one of the oldest football associations in Asia and organises various football competitions from professional to youth level in Hong Kong. It also oversees the Hong Kong national team. In 1954, the HKFA joined Fifa and it was one of the founding members of the Asian Football Confederation. In recent years, major attempts have been made to improve both the organisation’s governance and the quality of Hong Kong football under the government’s ‘Project Phoenix’ plan.
