It took a while before football fans in Hong Kong would be able to watch a reputable club from overseas – but the long wait has come to an end. On July 31st South China AA will take on Juventus Turin, aka the “Old Lady”, in an exhibition game at Hong Kong Stadium.
Ticket sales will start on June 23rd via www.cityline.com and will be priced between HK$ 300 and HK$ 680. However, there is doubt that we will see Juve’s biggest stars, in particular Gianluigi Buffon, Giorgio Chiellini, Paul Pogba, Patrice Evra, Mario Mandzukic, Alvaro Morata, and Sami Khedira, who are currently in action at the 2016 UEFA European Championship in France. All players are guaranteed a three-week-vacation – and with the final being scheduled for July 11th, that would probably mean that at least some of them won’t be able to make the journey to Hong Kong. We’ll keep you updated about the expected line-ups.
