Introduction to the Hong Kong Games

To further promote the "Sport for All" culture in the community, the Sports Commission has organised the Hong Kong Games (HKG) biennially since 2007. HKG is a territory-wide major multi-sport event with the 18 Districts as participating units. The objectives of the HKG are to provide districts with more opportunities for sports participation, exchanges and co-operation, and to encourage active public participation in sports. Apart from improving sporting standards at the district level, HKG can also strengthen the public's sense of belonging to the district they live in and help promote community cohesion through facilitating communication and fostering friendship among the 18 districts.
