Kin-Chung Tsang has played for the Hong Kong national team. He appeared in the 2007 Asian Championship and 2010 Asian Games. In the latter event, he played in all three of Hong Kong's games. He started and was 0 for 2 versus Taiwan. He went 1 for 4 with their only RBI as a starter at catcher against Pakistan and did not bat against South Korea after replacing Chun-Yeung Wu. As Hong Kong was shut out by both Taiwan and South Korea, Tsang's RBI against Pakistan was their only RBI of the Games.
