BC Rangers - led by coach Ricardo Rambo - are confirmed as the 'HKFA Qualifier' and will play in Group C with Manchester City, Rangers and Singapore Cricket Club. The club finished fifth in the 2013/14 First Division ...

 

BC Rangers are the defending Plate champions after going undefeated in all six of their games in 2013, a feat not even achieved by eventual Cup winners Leicester. Rangers finished third in Group D after a scoreless draw with Aston Villa followed 1-1 draws with fellow First Division side Citizen and Kowloon Cricket Club.

Rangers routed Southern 5-0 and beat HKFA U-21 on penalties to set up a rematch with KCC, edging the amateurs 1-0 in the final. It was an improvement on their previous appearance in 2011, when they finished third in their group and exited in the Plate quarters.

Rangers finished fifth in the 2013/14 First Division, one place better than the previous season, which was their first year back in the top flight after being relegated to the Second Division in 2008.

One of the territory’s most storied clubs, the team were founded as Hong Kong Rangers more than 50 years ago by a Scottish expatriate called Ian Petrie, who named his new team after the more famous Rangers in his homeland.

Rangers changed the face of local football in 1970, becoming the first team to recruit overseas players by bringing in Scottish professionals Derek Currie and Walter Gerrard – both of whom remain revered in Hong Kong to this day – a move that brought the club their only league title in 1971.
