CPFC Confirmed For Asia Trophy

25 May 2017

Crystal Palace Football Club will compete in the Premier League Asia Trophy in Hong Kong, with matches confirmed for Wednesday 19th and Saturday 22nd July at the Hong Kong Stadium. 

The other teams competing are Leicester City, Liverpool and West Bromwich Albion with the fixtures being confirmed in early June.  

The eighth edition of the biennial tournament will feature four Premier League clubs for the first time, and the knock-out format will see the clubs compete over two match days with a final to determine the winner.

The Premier League Asia Trophy is part of the League’s ongoing commitment to fans in Asia, and to supporting the development of football at all levels in Hong Kong and across the region. A full programme of coaching and community initiatives, including another Premier Skills coaching programme run in partnership with the Hong Kong Football Association, will run alongside the tournament. 

Palace last played in Hong Kong during 1995 in a friendly match against Happy Valley. The visitors took the lead through Bruce Dyer but the game was finally decided on a penalty shoot-out, that the home side won 6-5.  

Ticket information and travel packages for fans wishing to travel to the tournament will be announced in early June.
