2012 Asian Super Challenge Cup in Hong Kong

Barry Barry writes

OK, then! Have been a bit busy with various stuff and not been updating as much as I'd like to. Well, here's the lowdown on the pre-season tour / tournament in Hong Kong. It's basically a team building beano to the continent to keep our team sharp and give them some experience against foreign opposition. We may even gain a few supporters in Hong Kong too. :)

January 23rd and 26th @ Hong Kong Stadium.


South China AA
Guangzhou_R&F F.C.
Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma


Semi Final: S-Pulse v South China - Jan 23rd 18:30

Final: Jan 26th 20:30
or 3rd/4th place play off: Jan 26th 18:30

I'll keep you updated of the results as they happen. Good luck to our boys, and the supporters on their way to Hong Kong to cheer us on. Respect.

Barry..any chances of a tv telecast for these games?? being overly optimistic here considering S-pulse league games dont get telecasted :D

Barry said...

I've not seen anything on the S-Pulse page about them being broadcast, so probably not...

May come Apodi?!

When's the friendlies at the 'Daira Barry?

Barry said...


No worries! Not sure about when they get back to training in Shimizu, but will post when I do. :) Nice to see Freddie get number 9.


Apodi? He's a defender, isn't he? We need a big, foreign forward!


None that I'm aware of yet. Apparently our pre-season game with jubilo is being played down in Kagoshima, which sucks.

Freddie getting number 9..wth? Thats too much of a short sight aint it ? would have preferred Genki or Toshyuki getting it over the long term!! or probably the new striker we will get(fingers crossed for it :P)

Ya saw regarding the Jubilo game..that sucks..why do they have to play it at kyushu when hardly anyone turned up for the same friendly at the 'daira last year!!!

Cheers, Steve! Book has been a more of a mission than I ever thought. Will be glad when it's finally done!

Happy Chinese new year, and good luck this season. :)
