The Hong Kong Football Association (HKFA) has been conferred with the ‘A’ Level Membership under the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Coaching Convention as of 1 August 2019, paving the way for Hong Kong licenced coaches to coach in any part of Asia. In order to comply with the provisions of the "AFC Coaching Convention", the HKFA has prepared the "HKFA Coaching Manual" as a guide for relevant regulations. The following are the highlights of the coaching manual:

 
Coach Registration
The coach registration period lasts for three seasons which is counted in terms of the game season (1 July to 30 June) from season 2020-21. Due to the impact of the virus epidemic in the past six months, most courses have not been successfully completed. Therefore, HKFA will provide an extra 12-month for coaches to accumulate enough CEP points (before June 30, 2021). If coach still do not have sufficient points, he/she cannot register.

(the sum of points in three seasons before registration).
 
According to the ‘AFC Coaching Convention’, to prevent to prevent coach after finishing the coaching course not to register. If coaches did not register in HKFA for two consecutive seasons, HKFA will not recognize the relevant qualifications. Coaches must finish the same level of refresher course in order to register again. If coaches did not register in HKFA for more than four consecutive seasons, they must take the same level coaching course again and pass the course in order to register again.
 
In addition, there are significant changes in overseas coach registration and Coach of Conduct. Please refer to the ‘HKFA Coach Manual’.

HKFA will provide the relevant certification documents required by the application to the coaches of HKFA's activities through e-mail.
