In Sunday morning’s U-11 competition, Kitchee – who also have teams competing in the Main and Masters Tournament – and Brasil Top Skills (NTS) qualified for the Cup final, while APSS and Tai Tam Tigers progressed to the Plate final.


The Junior Soccer Sevens kicked off with the U-9 competition on Saturday morning. Hong Kong Football Academy (HKFA) and Hong Kong Dragons qualified for Sunday’s Cup final, while Kitchee will take on HKFC in Saturday’s Plate final.

The U-10 competition on Saturday afternoon was abandoned due to inclement weather. The Bowl and Shield finals in all three remaining age groups were held last weekend (May 23-24), with Shenzhen United (Bowl) and Kowloon Cricket Club (Shield) taking home medals in the U-12.


HKFC and Brazilian Football Academy won the Bowl and Shield respectively in the U-11s, while Sun Pegasus and APSS claimed the Bowl and Shield respectively in the U-9s.
