On 2 June 2023 Sham Shui Po SA announced that Oyuntuya Oyunbold was one of nine players who had departed the club following the 2022/23 season.

Oyunbold made history as the first Mongolian to play in Hong Kong when he joined Sham Shui Po in September 2022. Over the year he was one of only two national teamers playing abroad, along with Ganbold Ganbayar of KFC Kormarno in Slovakia.

He made his competitive debut on the 18 September. It was a less-than-ideal start to his time at the club as Oyunbold came on as a 64th-minute substitute with his team down 0-5 to powerhouse Kitchee SC. The match would end in a 0-10 defeat. Over the rest of the season, Oyuntuya made eight total league appearances while remaining as an unused substitute an additional five times.

The player also made several appearances in various cup competitions.

Sham Shui Po SA ultimately finished the 22/23 Hong Kong Premier League season in 9th place in the 10-team field. The results seemed predictable for the newly-promoted club making its debut in the country's top division. Sham Shui PO were surprise promotion winners following a 21/22 second division season that was abandoned because of COVID-19 with the club in 6th position. The relegation process has fluctuated in recent years, but it is likely Sham Shui PO will see itself in at least a play-off to determine its fate for next season.

While a Mongolian club would surely snatch up the new free-agent, Oyunbold likely has his eyes set on another destination abroad.
