Dreams Sports Club
Position in 2016/17:
Tsing Yi Sports Ground
HK$ 7 million
Although only established under their current structure in the 2017/18 season, the club as an entity were actually established back in 2011 under the name of Hong Kong Sapling FC. Due to the departure of Mutual FC from the top flight the previous season, the HKFA created Sapling to fill the void, and the team consisted of U23 players with a view to competing in the 2013 East Asian games. After finishing in the relegation zone in their first season, however, the team was disbanded and it looked as though the club’s time was well and truly up. But in 2016, the club was revived after finance group Glory Sky and watch company Biu Chun formed a consortium to purchase the club license, and competed under the name of BC Glory Sky in the 2016/17 season. Despite avoiding relegation though, the club once again was in danger of folding when Glory Sky announced they would not be pursuing another season as main sponsors. Thanks to investment from Ryan Yeung, the son of former Birmingham FC owner Carson Yeung, however, the team was reborn once again under the name of Dreams Sports Club. With a very professional feel about the club and after recruiting new staff and players heavily over the summer, the team may well now be here to stay.
① Some might still remember the times of “Dreams Metro Gallery” or “Eastern Salon” – and the newly founded Dreams Sports Club has connections with both.
② With a trendy logo and professional appearance, Dreams have put together an interesting mix of veterans and youngsters who would otherwise find it hard to get playing time in the league.
③ Calling Tsing Yi their home, Dreams are the new local team for all the residents of the island, and also neighbouring Tsuen Wan and Lantau. On top of that, you can combine your Sunday afternoon kick-off with a swimming pool visit just next door.
