For the preparation of the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia – Preliminary Competition Round 2 and AFC Asian Cup 2019 Qualifiers vs. China PR in Shenzhen on 3rd September and the home match vs. Qatar in Mongkok stadium on 8th September, 2015, the Hong Kong Senior Representative Team will start training from 24 August, 2015.
Under the Refereeing Assistance Programme (RAP) of FIFA, FIFA Member Association Refereeing Course 2015 - Hong Kong had been held successfully during 8 -12 July 2015 in Olympic House and Kwong Fuk Park Football Pitch. We were honored to have FIFA RAP Referee Instructors Mr. Mohamad Rodzali YACOB and Mr. CHIA Eng Wah John to conduct the Course. The participants of the Course were local elite referees and those young talented referees. The objectives of the course were to update the refereeing knowledge, FIFA Technical Instructions and to refine the refereeing technique in the field. All participants were fully committed and inspired from the course. It would be sure that the refereeing technique would be enhanced after they had undergone this intensive and comprehensive course.
HKFA Registered Referees need to pass the fitness test twice per season for becoming qualified registered referees. 2015/2016 Registered Referee Pre-season Fitness Test has been started from 8 July 2015. Coincided with the FIFA MA Refereeing Course 2015 held from 8 July to 12 July 2015, we were pleased to have FIFA Refereeing Instructors to supervise the Fitness Test on 8 July 2015. The results on 8 July were remarkable that totally 39 Referees had achieved 12 Laps or above and 26 out of this 39 referees had achieved 15 laps on Intensive Interval Run as the FIFA Standard is only 10 laps. Although the result was very good in this fitness test, our referees would not be complacent. We are committed to strive for the improvement on refereeing technique continuously together with the improvement in fitness.
In order to recruit more referees for the increasing demands from our competitions, the 2015 HKFA New Referees Course has been started from June 2015. There will be 3 new referee courses this year and two will come to the end this month. The exam will be held on 30 July. For another class, it will start from 26 July. We noticed that all participants had joined the course with full commitment and they enjoyed the course content especially when they were first put on practical training. They found the real life refereeing was more difficult than they expected. As the sole organization providing quality referees for Hong Kong Football, HKFA thrives the best to provide the best education to these new future referees.
The HKFA "D" Coaching Certificate Course  will be held from 29/8/2015 - 22/10/2015.
The course will be conducted in Cantonese. (English handout & Exam available)
Application period is 27 July - 31 July. (Application open online at 10:00a.m. on 27/7)
Although submitted by various football fans across the Hong Kong Premier League, written down in a vast number of different penmanship styles, yet the messages appearing on the Active O2 Hong Kong Top Footballer Award ballots remain largely the same - with encouragements, blessings and appreciation overwhelmingly heading towards the Hong Kong Premier League players.
