City Kaitak

Team Name: City Kaitak

Why Kaitak? Kaitak, the home to the old Airport with one of the most difficult approaches, and the home to the new and architecturally one of the most beautiful Cruise Terminals located on the edge of Kowloon City, is what we call our home base. Like the game of Cricket, the area represents the romanticism of both the old and the new. Looking into the fragrant Victoria Harbour on one side and Lion Rock, representing the “Can-do” spirit of Hong Kong, on the other, the area will soon become a sports hub of Hong Kong. Our team which is promoted by “Old” fans of cricket is committed to the development of the cricket in the youth, the “New” of Hong Kong.

Team Sponsor: PCCW / NowTV,  Jobson, Sunlee Hong, MUST, Western Union and HSD Marine and Ship Repair
