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. In the HKFA's published calendar, no double entertainment are listed.
