It should come as no surprise that football is the most popular sport in this former British colony. The sheer number of activities and the considerable administrative influence that the tiny territory, now once more under Chinese rule, has exerted on international football over the last 30 years bear testimony to football's standing in Hong Kong. Persons such as honorary FIFA member Henry Fok, his son Timothy (a long-standing member of the Organising Committee for the Olympic Football Tourna)and long-serving AFC General Secretary Lee Wai Tong are also the embodiment of a healthy footballing scene, as shown by the number of surprise results that Hong Kong have recorded in Asian qualifying matches.
On 22 September 2004, the Goal Bureau endorsed plans to renovate the headquarters of the Hong Kong Football Association. The building has not been renovated since it was built 25 years ago. Structural changes will open up additional office space and greatly enhance working conditions for the staff of the association.
AFC World Cup Qualifiers
The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) is the governing body of association football in Asia. It has 46 member countries, mostly located on the Asian continent. Due to the disputed boundary of Europe and Asia, transcontinental nations such as Turkey and Russia are instead in the UEFA, whereas countries such as Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia and Israel are entirely in Asia (Central or Western Asia) and still members of the UEFA. On the other hand, Australia, formerly in the OFC, has been in the AFC since 2006, in the same way as the Oceanian nations of Guam and Northern Mariana Islands, which are also members of AFC.
