Home ground allocation[edit]

This season will be the first time in Hong Kong First Division League history that all 10 First Division clubs will be allocated their own sports ground for home games, without having to share with another club. Tseung Kwan O Sports Ground will be used for the league for the first time as Kitchee's home ground.

Double entertainment[edit]

Double entertainment is a term meaning two clubs will play their home games on the same ground one after the other, to attract more fans and save costs. Although both Sun Hei SC and Fourway Athletics would like to see the return of double entertainment, South China AA, Kitchee, TSW Pegasus and Tai Chung FC are against it, while Tuen Mun SA's home ground do not have enough changing rooms to accommodate 4 teams.[3] In the HKFA's published calendar, no double entertainment are listed.
