Develops the physical, mental and social capabilities of young people and fosters an attitude of excellence
Since 2015, The Hong Kong Jockey Club has partnered with Wofoo Social Enterprise, the North District Association and the Hong Kong Football Association in presenting the HKJC N-League, a competitive women’s football league for North District secondary schools. Not only does the N-League provide more opportunities for girls who are passionate about football to interact and play games, but it also brings women’s football into the community.
As Hong Kong’s first school-level local women’s football league, the HKJC N-League is held during the school year from September to May. It features many unique elements, such as a home-away double round-robin system and allowing graduated students and junior players to play as external assistants. This is so that women football players can show their potential on a well-equipped professional platform, as well as meet players from other schools and develop their physical, social and mental capabilities. Football is not only a men’s game!
For years now, the HKJC N-League has been promoting women’s football within the community. Recently, the league has attracted some participants from outside North District, which proves that the N-League has successfully spread its influence to other communities and is a solid foundation from which to popularise women’s football.
The JC School Football Development Scheme helps develop the potential of Hong Kong youth through football. The partnership with Manchester United enables teachers and coaches to receive professional training and experience MU’s world-class training model.
