Hong Kong Pegasus FC

Hong Kong Pegasus FC (Chinese: 香港飛馬足球會) is a Hong Kong professional football club founded in 2008 and based in Kowloon. The club currently competes in the Hong Kong Premier League.

History


TSW Pegasus was established on June 2008, and they had their first season in Hong Kong First Division League 2008–09 with a budget of about HKD$10,000,000.[1]

On 21 December 2008, Pegasus won their first trophy, defeating Sun Hei in the 2008 Senior Shield Final.

In July 2012, the club was renamed as Sun Pegasus following introduction of a new sponsor.[2]

After the 2014–15 season, Sun International Resources Limited withdrew their sponsorship. Their club was renamed Hong Kong Pegasus following a takeover by Canny Leung.

Colours and badge


Pegasus's home colours are a red shirt with white shorts. Their away colours are a white shirt with black shorts. The current kits are designed by adidas. The team historically has played with an all yellow kit as their home colours, but after their name change to Hong Kong Pegasus, the club owners decided to make a change. It proved to be a largely unpopular decision with the club's fans.

The current Pegasus badge is a pegasus inside a yellow and red shield, which is representative of "creating miracles", "vigor", "vitality" and "creativeness" in Greek mythology.

Club equipment


TSW Pegasus has a bus for team transportation which is sponsored by Fuso.

The team also rented an entire 48th floor of a block of Central Park Towers in Tin Shui Wai as accommodation for team members. Renovation work is already completed.

Stadium


TSW Pegasus applied to the Hong Kong Football Association for the use of Yuen Long Stadium and Tin Shui Wai Sports Ground for its home matches. HKFA replied that it will grant the application provided the grass turf at the stadium is up to standard after its examination.[3] Later, the HKFA accepted the application of having the Yuen Long Stadium as TSW Pegasus's home ground for the game against South China on 5 October 2008. The team's directors promised to make a fanfare at the stadium on the day.

HKFA chairman Leung Hung Tak later claimed that a total of three home games for TSW Pegasus will be played at Yuen Long Stadium in the 2008–09 season.[4]

For the 2013–14 season, TSW Pegasus has moved its home ground from Yuen Long Stadium to Mong Kok Stadium.

From 2015 to 2018 the club used Hong Kong Stadium as their home ground.

By virtue of their third place finish in the 2017–18 season, Pegasus exercised their right to use the Mong Kok Stadium for 2018–19.

Supporters


Pegasus has a fanbase mainly based in Yuen Long and Tin Shui Wai as they are Pegasus' original home districts. The club has an official fanclub known as "Pegasus Base". The club's slogan is "Pegasus, our team".

Community contribution


TSW Pegasus held a big recruitment event at Tin Shui Wai Sports Ground to recruit U-15 and U-19 team players on 3 August 2008. At the same time, the team also recruited a few team assistants in order to provide job opportunity for the local residents.[5] It played a friendly game against South China in the afternoon and the teams drew 1–1, TSW Pegasus lost (3–5) on penalties.[6]
