History

Established in 1914, it is one of the oldest Football Federations in Asia and is responsible for organising various football competitions including the Hong Kong First Division, for professional, amateur and young footballers in Hong Kong.

In 1954, HKFA joined FIFA, and was also one of twelve founding associations of the Asian Football Confederation. Hong Kong took an important part in the early development of Asian football, and was given the honour of hosting the first Asian Cup competition in 1956, in which Hong Kong came third in the tournament.

HKFA is also responsible for operating the Hong Kong football team (Chinese: 香港足球代表隊), which represents Hong Kong and competes in international football events.

HKFA's president is Timothy Fok SBS JP. The association is currently led by chairman Brian Leung Hung-tak.
