Newcastle United make Hong Kong return
Newcastle United are making another trip to Hong Kong, with the club once again represented at the HKFC Soccer Sevens.
The seven a side yearly tournament will run from May 29-31.
Champions in 2012, United’s Under 21 players will also be joined by four other Premier League clubs: Leicester, West Ham, Stoke and Aston Villa.
The Chairman of the organising committee, Tony Bratsanos:
“The HKFC Citibank Soccer Sevens has always had a strong presence from the Premier League, so we’re delighted that Aston Villa, Newcastle United and Leicester City are continuing their participation and will be bidding to lift the cup again.
“We’re excited that West Ham will be coming back after a brief break, as they were a very popular side when they played here.
“We’re also proud that we were able to secure Stoke City for their tournament debut. Stoke are enjoying a fine season, and will be a welcome addition to the main competition.”
