Hong Kong Stadium is the main sports venue of Hong Kong. Redeveloped from the old Government Stadium, it reopened as Hong Kong Stadium in March 1994. It has a maximum seating capacity of 40,000, including 18,257 at the main level, 3,153 at executive level, 18,507 upper level seats and 57 seats for wheelchair users.The stadium is located in So Kon Po, Hong Kong Island, a valley near Causeway Bay. Most international football matches held in Hong Kong are held at this stadium. It is also the location for the Hong Kong Sevens rugby sevens tournament. Hong Kong Stadium also hosted the Rugby World Cup Sevens twice, in 1997 and 2005.HistorySo Kon Po was formerly the burial ground for the 1918 fire at Happy Valley Racecourse. Then the Hong Kong Government moved all the tombs to Aberdeen. The old Government Stadium was a U-shaped constructed by 1953 and had a capacity of 28,000 with partially covered seating. It witnessed the best times of Hong Kong football in the 60s and 70s. At the time, the stadium would be packed full of spectators when a top of the league clash happened and a red flag would be hoisted. Eager spectators without tickets would climb the hill behind the stadium to see the game.

  • 這是香港最大的體育場, 大約可以坐大約2萬五千人。 一有大型活動的時候就會很多人。 平日也會有球賽進行。 
  • As moderate soccer fan attending a game (South China against Juve) and was equally astonished but not many fans including drums and trumpet. The cheers much then of the people for both sides compensate for what was also funny. But mostly, the scenery was spectacular.

  • Went to Hong Kong Stadium because of Rugby 7s. Will not go there for no particular reason because there is nothing much to see around the stadium. 
  • Probably the best stadium in Hong Kong. Watched the EPL preseason games here but the pitch did not look very good but that may have been due to the rain. Rugby 7s are also played here if not mistaken. Should bring some mosquito repellent with you.
  • great atmosphere in impressive setting
  • HK 7s is held there, the stadium is not that big and the south stand is not covered.
  • The important football stadium in Hong Kong. However, the transportation is worse.
  • Expensive but bad quality food and drinks during Rugby 7 weekend.
