Arrangement of 2020-2021 BOC Life Hong Kong Premier League and Sapling Cup

2020-10-20

 Further to the discussion between Hong Kong Football Association (HKFA) and the premier league clubs, a consensus has been reached on starting the new season with Sapling Cup from 24 October and starting the premier league not earlier than 14 November so that the clubs could have better preparation. Following the announcement of R&F’s withdrawal from the premier league earlier, HKFA has been discussing with the clubs about increasing the number of matches and the overall match arrangement. Thus, only the fixture of first 15 matches of Sapling Cup will be announced at this stage. Fixture and arrangement of the whole season will be announced later.

The first match day of Sapling Cup will be started on 24 October (this Saturday). The first match will be held at Mong Kok Stadium at 3pm with Kwoon Chung Southern vs Resources Capital. And the second match will be held at 5:30pm at Siu Sai Wan Sports Ground with Eastern Long Lions vs Happy Valley.
