"District with the Strongest Cheering Squad" Prize


To enhance the competition atmosphere of the Hong Kong Games (HKG), boost the morale of the athletes from the 18 districts and call for concerted efforts in the community to cheer on the athletes, each District Council may form a Cheering Squad to give full support to their athletes during the sports competitions. The district represented by the Cheering Squad with the highest overall attendance on competition days will be awarded the prize of the "District with the Strongest Cheering Squad".

Composition of the Cheering Squads:

Each Cheering Squad shall consist of at least 10 members, irrespective of age and gender. Members may include the head, deputy heads and team leaders of district delegations, members of the Cheering Team, relatives and friends of athletes as well as other participants from the district.
