Yip Tsz Chun (Chinese: 葉子俊; Jyutping: jip6 zi2 zeon3; born 15 May 1985 in Hong Kong), is a Hong Kong footballer who plays for Hong Kong First Division League club Sun Pegasus and the Hong Kong national football team. He plays mainly as a striker but has also played as a left winger on many occasions.

He was also a member of Hong Kong national futsal team.[1][2]

Early years

Yip was born in Hong Kong. When he was young, he joined Hong Kong First Division team South China youth academy. However, after he finished the secondary studies, he was forced to stop his professional football career due to injuries. He only played in the Hong Kong Second Division League as a non-professional player.

Professional club career


In 2007, Eastern was invited to promote to the Hong Kong top-tier league. Eastern coach Casemiro Mior invited Yip to join the club. Miro was the coach of South China youth team and Yip was one of his former player. Eastern were also Yip's first professional club.


After a season with Eastern, due to insufficient chances, Yip, alongside 7 other former Eastern players, joined the newly promoted team Mutual in the next season, the 2008–09 season.

Although he played most of the matches for Mutual, Mutual could not avoid relegation to Second Division after a season in the top-tier league.

TSW Pegasus

Since he was living in Yuen Long District, TSW Pegasus, a team based in Yuen Long District, signed Yip in the beginning of the 2009–10 season.

However, Yip was not given any chances, whilst at the same time, Yip could not attend training session in the evening as he had to attend school courses. He was released by the team after only staying half season with the team.[3]

Tai Chung

Yip joined another First Division club Tai Chung FC after being released by TSW Pegasus.

He was one of the key players of the club, but the team could not avoid relegation from First Division.

Tuen Mun

He signed a contract with Tuen Mun at the beginning of the 2011–12 season.[4]

On 30 October 2012, due to the divestment of Tuen Mun president Chan Keung, various key players, including Yip, and the whole coaching team were released by the club.[5]

Sun Pegasus

He signed for Sun Pegasus on 1 January 2014.[6]

International career

Senior team

After emerging as one of Tuen Mun's key players, Yip Tsz Chun was called up to the senior squad. He played his first senior international match on 1 June 2012, a international friendly match against Singapore at Hong Kong Stadium.[7]
