Hong Kong football league system
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (January 2012)|
Tracing back to early 20th century, the football league in Hong Kong is probably the oldest professional league in Asia. While most records before the Second World War have been lost and the current Hong Kong Football Association (HKFA) only recognises the match results since its establishment in 1945. Hence, not many people can remember the old glory of Hong Kong's professional football.
All the leagues are organised by the HKFA.

All the cup competitions are also organised by the HKFA. Among them the HKFA Cup and Silver Shield are probably the oldest professional football competitions in Asia - even earlier than the league.
