History

In April 1977, the Guangdong team visited Hong Kong for the first time and played two friendly matches. Within its staying period, the officials of Guangdong and Hong Kong football started a discussion on the possibility of establishing an annual competition between them.

In June 1978, the Hong Kong national football team visited China and finished its trip with a match against the Guangdong team. HKFA chairman Mr. Hui Chun Fui and the official in Guangdong then reached a basic agreement of having a competition between the teams again next year.

On 7 December 1978, the contract of establishing Guangdong–Hong Kong Cup was signed. The first competition started on 21 January 1979.

Milestones

Format

The competition is played every year. It is a two-leg competition where each team plays a home match once. The champion is decided by combining the results of both games.
