About FOS
FOS History
On 1 February 1958, the inaugural Festival of Sport (hereafter FOS) was held at Queen Elizabeth II Youth Centre in Mong Kok. The Festival was co-organized by the SF&OC and 11 sports associations. The inaugural FOS was a small-scale event, but it was so popular that the two-day programme was almost full because such activities were scarcely found in Hong Kong. Following the successful inaugural event, the Amateur Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong organised the second FOS in the next year. Henceforth, the FOS became an annual sport event in Hong Kong promoting the message of “Sport for All”.
In recent years, there are around 60 Festival of Sport events annually, which would be open for people of all ages to take part. Participants can reveal their sport talent through active participation in sports and develop a healthy lifestyle by exercising regularly.
