Museum of History to present gold football ornament to lucky draw winner

To coincide with the "Football" exhibition, which is currently running at the Hong Kong Museum of History, three lucky draws have been arranged. One winner will be drawn from each draw. Visitors with admission tickets can participate by answering a question correctly to win a gold football ornament sponsored by 3D-Gold Jewellery. The first draw took place on July 21.

A prize presentation was held today (July 28) at the Museum of History by the Curator (Exhibition and Research) of the Museum of History, Ms Naomi Szeto Yin-yin, and the Marketing Communications Manager with 3-D Gold Jewellery, Miss Stella Lai, who together presented the gold prize to Mr Leung Siu-keung, winner of the first lucky draw.

Mr Leung said he found the "Football" exhibition attractive because he was a fan of football. He also appreciated the rich and interesting contents of the exhibition, and was happy to win the gold football.

The other two lucky draws will be held on August 18 and September 20.

Featuring more than 150 exhibits, valuable photographs and audio-visual programmes provided by the National Football Museum in England and the Hong Kong Football Association, the "Football" exhibition traces the history of football right back to its origins. It provides visitors with a panorama of football's historical landmarks, such as the formation of the English Football Association and the Federation Internationale de Football Association, the development of match rules, the birth of the World Cup and the emergence of those football giants who populate the game's hall of fame. It also reviews the glorious days of Hong Kong football. The exhibition runs until September 19.

The Museum of History is located at 100 Chatham Road South, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. It opens from 10am to 6pm from Monday to Saturday, from 10am to 7pm on Sundays and public holidays. It is closed on Tuesdays except public holidays. Admission to the "Football" exhibition is $20 and a half-price concession is available to full-time students, senior citizens and people with disabilities.
