"M" Mark status awarded to World City Championship presented by Hong Kong Golf Club and Cathay/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens
The following is issued on behalf of the Major Sports Events Committee:
     The Major Sports Events Committee (MSEC) has awarded "M" Mark status to two major sports events that will be held in March this year, namely the World City Championship presented by the Hong Kong Golf Club (March 23 to 26) and the Cathay/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens (March 31 to April 2).
     The Chairman of the MSEC, Mr Wilfred Ng, said today (March 21) that like all other "M" Mark events, these two events will add colour and vibrancy to Hong Kong and thereby bring in more visitors from abroad.
     "The 'M' Mark events showcase Hong Kong's capability to host world-class events and enhance Hong Kong's position as a centre for major international sports events. These events will not only give an opportunity for local athletes to compete on home ground, but also allow Hong Kong audiences to enjoy high-level competitions and cultivate a sporting culture in the community," Mr Ng said.
     The "M" Mark System was launched in 2004 to help local national sports associations organise more major international sports events and nurture them into sustainable undertakings. Sports events meeting the assessment criteria will be granted "M" Mark status by the MSEC. Funding support will also be provided to some events.
