Sun Pegasus Football Club (Chinese: 太陽飛馬足球會) is a Hong Kong professional football club founded in 2008. The club currently plays in Hong Kong Premier League. Their manager is Jose Ricardo Rambo.

The club was named TSW Pegasus FC (Chinese: 天水圍飛馬足球會) until 2011–12 season.

History[edit]

TSW Pegasus was established on June 2008, and they had their first season in Hong Kong First Division League 2008–09 with a budget of about HKD$10,000,000.[1]

In July 2012, the club renamed the team name Sun Pegasus.[2]

Colours and badge[edit]

TSW Pegasus's home colours are an all yellow strip. Their away colours are a purple strip with yellow socks. The current kits are designed by adidas. The team have a third kit in white with a blue triangle on the top of the shirt which was used as a home kit prior to the use of their yellow home kit.

The current TSW Pegasus badge is a pegasus inside a shield, which is representative of "creating miracles", "vigor", "vitality" and "creativeness" in Greek mythology. Since the team has been renamed, the club made some changes on the badge. The Sun is added inside the shield, placing in the left hand side, while the pegasus is placed in the right hand side.

Club equipment[edit]

TSW Pegasus has acquired a bus for team transportation which is sponsored by Fuso.

The team also rented an entire 48th floor of a block of Central Park Towers in Tin Shui Wai as accommodation for team members. Renovation work is already completed.

Stadium[edit]

TSW Pegasus applied to the Hong Kong Football Association for the use of Yuen Long Stadium and Tin Shui Wai Sports Ground for its home matches. HKFA replied that it will grant the application provided the grass turf at the stadium is up to standard after its examination.[3] Later, the HKFA accepted the application of having the Yuen Long Stadium as TSW Pegasus's home ground for the game against South China on 5 October 2008. The team's directors promised to make a fanfare at the stadium on the day.

HKFA Chairman Leung Hung Tak later claimed that a total of three home games for TSW Pegasus will be played at Yuen Long Stadium in the 2008-09 season.[4]

For the 2013-14 season, TSW Pegasus has moved its home ground from Yuen Long Stadium to Mong Kok Stadium.
