DBFC Vets (Legends League - Over 35's)

DBFC Vets (Legends League - Over 35's)

Discovery Bay has unofficially been in existence since 1991, when during the 90’s, an 11 a-side vet’s team played regular games throughout Hong Kong.

However, known more for its 7’s football due to the lack of a full-size pitch in DB, in 2008, a DB based 7-a-side vets touring team was formed to play in the Manila International Soccer 7s tournament which was held in February 2009, and the team subsequently won the tournament. Separate to this, in 2009 another 7’s tour team was formed from the 7’s game in DB to tour Thailand, and has continued to tour since, winning several Masters titles.

Due to the success in Manila, a Discovery Bay Vet’s team was invited to take part in the prestigious Hong Kong International Soccer 7s tournament. This brought about a change in name to Discovery Bay Football Club (“DBFC”), and since then, DBFC has been involved in nearly every tournament.

Also, over the years, many of the players involved in Discovery Bay football 7’s and 11’s friendly football also played together in the Hong Kong Legal League for ‘Studz United’ that was formed by Mike Weir and Andy Blank, also former Discovery Bay residents.

Studz was rebranded as DBFC for the 2013/14 season and since then have been crowned Division 1 champions in 2014/15 and again completing the double in 2016/17.

Besides the Legal League team, DBFC established a vets team who participate in the Legends League, and for the 2017/18 season, we are looking at arranging friendlies for an O45’s team, as well as continuing on regular tours to Phuket, Bangkok and Shanghai.

Sponsored by Harvey Law Group, for the 3rd year running, DBFC looks forward to defending their title in the Legal League and going one better in the Legends League.
