Policy Address


Sports Facilities

129.     Over the past five years, the Government has invested more than $3.5 billion to build and improve sports facilities.  We will continue to invest substantially in sport facility projects, including the construction of the Kai Tak Multi-purpose Stadium Complex, which is now under planning, as well as new indoor sports centres and games halls.  These facilities are crucial to the promotion of “sport for all” and to the development of elite sports.

130.     We are consulting the public on whether Hong Kong should bid for the 2023 Asian Games.  Our decision will be subject to community support and the acceptance of the financial implications by the Finance Committee of this Council.  We encourage the public to express their views.

Football Development

131.     Football is a popular sport in Hong Kong, and one that can help foster a sense of community.  The Government is committed to developing football at both the professional and amateur levels.  The Home Affairs Bureau is working with the Hong Kong Football Association and others to implement the recommendations of the Consultancy Report on Football Development.  To popularise the sport, we will build new pitches and upgrade existing ones, and allocate additional resources from the Arts and Sports Development Fund to give greater support to district football teams and provide them with more competition opportunities.
