AFC Annual Awards 2019

On 1 and 2 December 2019, the city welcomed Asia’s biggest names in football from players to coaches for an annual celebration at AFC Annual Awards Hong Kong. Known as the Oscars of Asian football, the prominent ceremony was held successfully at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, one of the city’s iconic harbourfront landmarks.  Saki Kumagai, Japanese footballer and newly crowned 2019 AFC women's player of the year, proclaimed Hong Kong as the “World’s Meeting Place” during her stay. Here’s why.

It's a fantastic city to host such an event; guests are excited to come. The hotels chosen are superb, and the convention centre (Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre) itself is a fantastic facility to hold such a prestigious award ceremony.
