BOLINHA – GROUP A

Given that the teams where randomly drawn for the two groups competing in Macau’s annual 7 aside competition, Group A was definatly a tougher draw. Of the eight teams, 6 played in Macau’s top flight in the season just gone, whist one had recently won promotion to join them. Leaving AMCM as the rank underdogs to stay alive.

Lam Pak got off to a great start, beating the Development team. Kuan Tai narrowly beat last years Bolinha runners up. Hong Ngai are held to a goalless stalemate by the Police team. Porto see of underdogs AMCM.

Round 1 of 7; Macau U23 2-4 Lam Pak; Kuan Tai 1-0 Pau Peng; Hong Ngai 0-0 Policia; FC Porto 2-0 AMCM

Pau Peng look unlikely to repeat last years heroics as they fail to score again. Lam Pak storm past Policia. Kuan Tai scrape past a brave AMCM. Hong Ngai beat Porto.

Round 2 of 7; Pau Peng 0-0 Macau U23; Lam Pak 3-0 Policia; AMCM 1-2 Kuan Tai; FC Porto 1-2 Hong Ngai

Policia tight as usual against U23 team. Pau Peng and AMCM share their 1st points. Lam Pak and Kuan Tai both maintain 100% records after 3 games.

Round 3 of 7; Macau U23 0-1 Policia; Pau Peng 1-1 AMCM; Lam Pak 2-0 FC Porto; Kuan Tai 2-0 Hong Ngai

    Thank you for your great explanation of football in Macau. I have been trying to find information on football in Macau and have found it very difficult! Even the official Macau FA page is not very useful.

    I am the Fixture Secretary of a Hong Kong based football team called Chatteris FC. We are coming to Macau on a football tour during the weekend of 10-11th March. We are looking at arranging a couple of social 11-a-side (or even 7-a-side) fixtures, however I am finding it difficult to find contact details for any social football clubs.

    Do you know any clubs we could play?

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Sam

    Hello, I am a Portuguese coach and I live in Portugal. But I have a great ambition to one day go to a different country to implement my technical and tactical knowledge. Macau would be the country, because football is not yet well developed and I think it validates my help to change that.
    My problem is I have tried to contact representatives of clubs but it is not easy. Will you help me? If necessary I can send my C.V.
