ING Cup (football)


ING Cup (football)

ING Cup is a pre-Olympics football tournament held at Hong Kong Stadium, Hong Kong from 30 July to 2 August 2008. Netherlands,
Cameroon, U.S.A and Ivory Coast competed for the ING Cup as part of their teams' final preparation for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

Background

The ING Cup was hosted by the Hong Kong Football Association and organised by the Asian Football Confederation's (AFC) marketing partner World Sport Group (WSG).

Format

Since Netherlands and U.S.A are in the same group in the Olympic football tournament, they will not face each other in the ING Cup. Therefore the winner of the ING Cup will be determined by the number of points gained from the matches played.

The point system was different from the regular football scoring system. A win earned 3 points, but a point was awarded for every goal scored. A draw still earned one point, and a loss did not gain or lose points.
