The stadium (which is owned by the Hong Kong Football Club) holds 2,750 people, and hosts the annual Hong Kong Tens tournament and the HKFC International Soccer Sevens tournament.

Sports Road was the venue for the world famous Hong Kong Sevens from its inception in 1976 till it outgrew its home and was moved to the Hong Kong Government Stadium (now the Hong Kong Stadium) in 1982.

The Pitch is also used for Junior Soccer and Rugby teams. These teams train on the pitch on Saturdays and Sundays. Some teams also train on the Training Triangle, which is next to the main pitch.
