Former HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens Masters Cup champions Eleven FC return to Hong Kong Football under their new name, having previously featured as both Eastern Salon Top Class and Golden Rainbow.
Made up of former players and coaches who have featured in both the local top-flight and for the national team, they won the Main Cup title as Golden Rainbow in 2009 and Eastern Salon Top Class in 2011.
In 2011, Eastern Salon Top Class edged out a Citi All Stars team that included the likes of Des Walker, Rob Lee, John Beresford and Steve Howie 4-3 after extra-time in the final.
They had also needed extra-time to edge out Football For Life 2-1 in the 2009 final.
They missed out on back-to-back titles after losing the 2012 final 6-1 to Ajax All Stars, who claimed the trophy thanks to 11 goals from tournament MVP Kenneth Perez.
