Given the current situation the HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens committee has taken the difficult decision to cancel the HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens 2020 event. Tournament Director, Chris Plowman, noted “the difficulty in securing the necessary commitments to be able to deliver an event of the scale and quality that is expected of the Soccer Sevens. Naturally we are very disappointed and we would like to thank all the teams, sponsors, stakeholders and fans who had committed to the 2020 event. We will be back in 2021 and look forward to seeing you then.”
The HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens has only been canceled once before in its 20 year history, when the SARS epidemic affected Hong Kong in 2003.
