Hong Kong Pegasus FC (Chinese: 香港飛馬足球會) is a Hong Kong professional football club founded in 2008. The club currently plays in Hong Kong Premier League. Their manager is Kevin Bond.

The club was named TSW Pegasus FC (Chinese: 天水圍飛馬足球會) until 2011–12 season. The club was also named Sun Pegasus FC (Chinese: 太陽飛馬足球會) from 2012-2013 season until 2014-2015 season under Sun International Resources Limited's management. After Sun Pegasus' broke with Sun International Resources Limited after 2014-2015 season, the club was named Hong Kong Pegasus FC (Chinese: 香港飛馬足球會) up until now under Canny Leung's management.

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 was renamed as Sun Pegasus following introduction of a new sponsor.[2]

In July 2015, the club was renamed as Hong Kong Pegasus FC after Sun International pulled their sponsorship from the club.

Colours and badge[edit]

Pegasus's home colours are a red shirt with white shorts. Their away colours are a white shirt with black shorts. The current kits are designed by adidas. The team historically has played with an all yellow kit as their home colours, but after their name change to Hong Kong Pegasus, the club owners decided to make a change. It proved to be a largely unpopular decision with the club's fans.

The current Pegasus badge is a pegasus inside a yellow and red shield, which is representative of "creating miracles", "vigor", "vitality" and "creativeness" in Greek mythology.

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.

For the 2015–16 and also 2016-2017 season, Hong Kong Pegasus FC were granted use of Hong Kong Stadium as their home ground for these two seasons.

Supporters[edit]

Pegasus has a fanbase mainly based in Yuen Long and Tin Shui Wai as they are Pegasus' original home districts. The club has an official fanclub known as "Pegasus Base". The club's slogan is "Pegasus, our team".

Community contribution[edit]

TSW Pegasus held a big recruitment event at Tin Shui Wai Sports Ground to recruit U-15 and U-19 team players on 3 August 2008. At the same time, the team also recruited a few team assistants in order to provide job opportunity for the local residents.[5] It played a friendly game against South China in the afternoon and the teams drew 1–1, TSW Pegasus lost (3–5) on penalties.[6]
