Kitchee Sports Club was established in 1931 and has been competing in the top professional league in Hong Kong since 2003. The club has enjoyed a successful trophy-laden spell following their return to the top division, having won 12 championships, including 6 Hong Kong First Division titles and 6 Hong Kong Premier League titles, along with 8 Hong Kong Senior Shields and 7 x FA Cups, making them one of the most distinguished football clubs in Hong Kong’s footballing history. 

Kitchee have also been regularly competing in Asian continental competitions, and the qualifying for the East Region Knockout Stage for the first time in the AFC Champions League last August was the first Hong Kong club in history to advance to the Round of 16. Their domestic dominance has also been impressive as the recent FA Cup triumph has taken Kitchee to become domestic treble winners for the 5th time.
