Hong Kong Soccer Sevens
@ HKFC, Happy Valley, Hong Kong

Newcastle have entered a team in the annual two-day football event in Hong Kong since 2012 (aside from 2016), winning the main Cup on three occasions.

Played on artificial pitches at the Happy Valley home of Hong Kong FC, group stage games are seven minutes each way - knockout ties increasing to ten minutes each way and a three minute break.

If matches are drawn in the knockout stage, four minutes extra time is then played with each side dropping from seven players to four and the first goal wins rule played. If that doesn't yield a winner then it goes to penalties.
