Lee Man Football Club (Chinese: 理文足球會) are a Hong Kong professional football club based in Tseung Kwan O, which currently competes in the Hong Kong Premier League. The club is owned by Lee & Man Chemical.

History[edit]

Lee & Man Paper were the main sponsors and operators of Hong Kong Rangers during the 2016–17 season. The club played that season using the team name Lee Man Rangers (Chinese: 理文流浪).

The following season, Lee & Man decided to invest their money in building their own football club. They paid a HK$1 million entrance fee to the Hong Kong Football Association for the right to enter a club directly into the Hong Kong Premier League.[1] The club hired former Hong Kong international Fung Ka Ki as their first manager on 3 July 2017.[2] Fung would only last one season as manager as the club finished a disappointing 8th place.

On 21 May 2018, Lee Man hired former Hong Kong and Macau manager Chan Hiu Ming as head coach.[3]
