Regulation on Smoking at HKFC (8/4/2011)

HKFC noticePlease observe the regulation of smoking at Hong Kong Football Club

SMOKING POLICY (Bye-laws 3.7)


Our club has a sporting basis and the concepts of smoking and participation in sports and exercise don’t easily mix.  Legislation now imposes a complete ban on smoking in all internal areas of the Club but, smoking, for a number of Members, is still part of their social environment and therefore a complete “Club-wide” ban on smoking has not been put in place.

The restriction on smoking is also confined to certain external areas of the Club as defined in the Bye-laws.  Smokers are also reminded that in all smoking areas “courtesy of choice” applies.  Be aware of those around you: you may choose not to smoke, or to exercise extra consideration, in the presence of children or others who may be affected.  Using ashtrays provided to avoid littering and damage to floors and surfaces is also expected.

Whether you are a smoker or a non-smoker, it must be remembered that our Club serve a diverse membership whose expectations include enjoying a setting which can meet their individual requirements and this involves extending courtesies to all fellow Members.

  1. Smoking is not permitted in any internal areas of the Club, including the car park,
  2. Smoking is not permitted in all external areas of the Club except the following areas:
