Our pick of 5 Hong Kong sporting events to play or watch!

1. Lunar New Year Cup 2019

Date: Feb 5 & 7 (Tue & Thur)  

Time: 4.00pm-7:45pm (both days)

Venue: Hong Kong Stadium

Admission: $250-$480 (purchase HERE)


Love football? Nothing to do this Chinese New Year? Then why not head over to Hong Kong Stadium to witness footballing legends like Fernando Torres battle it out to be the next Lunar New Year Cup champions!


Spread over two days, these 4 clubs - Sagan Tosu (JPN), Shandong Luneng Taishan FC (CHN), Auckland City FC (NZL) and HK CNY Selection Team, will be involved this year.


The tournament will truly be a magnificent spectacle that will no doubt please Hong Kong's footballing community. A cracker of an event that you definitely do not want to miss! 


2. Aunkai Bujutsu 

Date: Feb 3 (Sun)

Time: 6.00pm-8.30pm  

Venue: South China Athletic Association  

Admission: $100 (pay on entry) 


For those looking to take up a unique martial art most people wouldn't have heard of, Bujutsu may well be your new hobby. 


Roughly translating to "martial" or "war" techniques, the underlying philosophy behind Bujutsu is "kill or be killed". Generally speaking, what you will learn is highly functional and aimed to overcome your opponent as efficiently as possible- perhaps wholly antithetical to something like Capoeira. 


At a pretty economical rate of $100 per lesson, you can equip yourself with the technique and nous to defend yourself from anyone attempting to cause you bodily harm, as well as getting fitter with every passing session. A win-win if you ask me! 


3. Shred and Flow 

Date: Feb 3 (Sun) 

Time: 10.30am-11.15am  

Venue: Tamar Park

Admission: Contact Sunday Shred

The guys at Sunday Shred have got you covered, offering you the chance to join a bunch of high-energy, like-minded and supportive folks on an intense 45-minute HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workout, followed by a relaxing stretch to cool things down.
