History[edit]

Sun Hei entered the Hong Kong First Division League under the name Golden (Chinese: 好易通) in the 1994–95 season. In 1996, Golden under the name Golden XI played against England. England was in Hong Kong preparing for the UEFA Euro 1996 later in the summer. It was in Hong Kong that Paul Gascoigne's famous dentist chair incident took place.

After securing the sponsorship of Xiangxue Pharmaceutical, the club competed in the league under the team name Xiangxue Sun Hei (Chinese: 香雪晨曦) from 2005–07.

In the season 2004–05, Sun Hei achieved The Quadruple, winning all four senior football competitions, including the Hong Kong First Division League, the Senior Shield, the League Cup and the FA Cup. In the 2005 AFC Cup, Sun Hei also got through to the semi-finals stage, the best result for a Hong Kong football club in the competition to date.

In season 2007–08, Sun Hei changed the club name to Convoy Sun Hei (Chinese: 康宏晨曦) as the club obtained sponsorship from Convoy Financial Services, a Hong Kong financial service company.

As Sun Hei has refused to take part in the NOW TV broadcast agreement, it will not have its home games shown live on Now TV, its personnel will not be interviewed, it will not share any potential TV income and its sponsors' names will not be mentioned on Now TV broadcasts.[3]

In the 2009–10 Hong Kong First Division League, Sun Hei starts using Tsing Yi as their home ground. The first home match against a local strong team, Kitchee, has attracted around 1200 fans. It is the highest percentage home attendance in this season.
