A regular fixture at the HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens, two-time Cup semi-finalists HKFC Chairman’s Select return seeking a place in the knockout stage after missing out last year.
The Hong Kong Football Club representative side progressed to the last four in 2010 before repeating the feat in 2016 after posting an unbeaten record in the group stage.
In 2010, HKFC Chairman’s Select lost 2-1 to the Andy Cole All Stars after extra-time, before losing at the same stage to the Citi All Stars in 2016.
They lost all four games against Wallsend Boys Club, Yau Yee League Masters, playonPros and KCC Veterans in 2017.
Last year, HKFC Chairman’s Select suffered defeats by Nottingham Forest Mobsters, Citi All Stars and SCC Masters, but were able to end the group stage on a high with a 1-0 win over Yau Yee League Masters.
HKFC Chairman’s Select previously reached the Plate final on three occasions.
They beat Bangkok Airways in 2012 and Singapore Cricket Club Tigers in 2013 before suffering a 3-1 defeat by KCC Veterans in the 2015 final.
