HONG KONG F.C.
PHILIPS LIGHTING INTERNATIONAL SOCCER 7's
Arsenal, Aston Villa, Manchester united, PSV Eindhoven, West Ham, Middlesborough.
The HKFC Soccer 7's has been held since 2000 and Celtic have competed in every one. However, in 2003 the tournament was cancelled because of the SARS outbreak in China at the time. A programe has been issued each year and these are displayed below. The programme is very difficult to get as they are sold along with your ticket for the matches. Before the 2004 tournament, Philips Lighting announced an extended 4 years title sponsorship of the Soccer 7's from 2004 to 2007.
There is a slight chance that you can pick one of these programmes up by searching the Web sites and catalogues of English dealers, especially those that deal in Arsenal, Man Utd Chelsea and Aston Villa programmes. This site - www.collectsoccer.com - has the 2000, 2001, 2002 issues for sale at the time of writing but are overpriced in our opinion.
The tournament has it's own Web site at www.soccer7s.com.
Each side play three group matches, with the top two sides going through to a knock out quarter finals, semis and then the final itself on the Sunday.
|Aston Villa beat Manchester United in the final.|
|This programme is very rare as only 1,000 were produced and it was a sell-out by the middle of day 2. Value is up to £175 (2004) with some dealers. A 4 page programme was also on sale - click here to see it.||Celtic got knocked out in the quarter final stage). See a picture of a match ticket here.|
