A few days ago, Jiangsu Suning announced that they were ceasing all operations of both their men's and women's football teams.
Jiangsu are the reigning Chinese Super League champions, and their demise has sparked questions as to whether China's remarkably lucrative state-sponsored soccer league could be a bubble that's about to burst.
So in this brief documentary, HITC Sevens takes a look at the relationship between China's president Xi Jinping, the country's footballing finances that extend to Serie A and the Premier League, their bold plans, and whether it is all about to come crashing down in the CSL.

  • I heard all this stuff about China scaling back on football about 5 years ago ....it never happened! 😕

  • China has been heavily investing in esports, specifically league of legends. Their efforts there have payed off, I imagine while this isn’t the biggest factor, it is where some china’s investment has gone instead of football now as they’ve had two world champions in 3 years. The process to improve the Chinese league of legends scene started in a similar matter as they did in football with the “great Korean exodus” where they bought dozens of top Koreans players contracts and offered high salaries to come over

  • MLS and their strategies, although many don't agree with them, are proving to be far better for the log run when comparing to other newer leagues like the CSL.

  • As with football, so it is with 100metres spring. 24-year-old Chinese sprinter has become China's fastest man, as he dashed to a 9.97-second winning mark in the men's 100-meter event

  • 300, 000, 000 young boys playing football. All you need is a 22 man squad - yeah I think they can do it. They are doing a similar thing with the Olympic 100metre sprint. 24-year-old Chinese sprinter Xie Zhenye has become China's fastest man, as he dashed to a 9.97-second winning mark in the men's 100-meter event

  • 10:18 That's a Gaelic football Xi is kicking, a completely different sport to the one being talked about in the video. But there aren't any pictures of him playing soccer, so it's usage is understandable.

  • Find it amusing that China are significantly inferior to Australia at an international level, bearing in mind that soccer is a minor professional sport in Australia where it is domestically dominated by Australian Rules Football and Rugby League. How can a country with a small 25 million population, that really doesn’t give a rat’s arse about soccer, dominate China on the biggest stages? Actually all of Asia must be rubbish at soccer if Australia can win the Asia Cup (2015) and routinely qualify for the World Cup Finals from its tiny base.

  • Chinese culture just does not like football enough for it to be a passion or higher importance in Chinese society. Hence why the underperformence. It has got nothing to do with population but culture. Most Chinese parents will encourage their children to study hard rather then getting them to pursue a career in football. Football is just not in high regard within the Chinese culture and mindset.

  • A club from my country made an agreement with the Chinese government to remodel its stadium, the Chinese would put 80 million dollars for that. One of the things that stadium would have would be a government office. What I think is that they want to take youth players to China, continue training them there and that they play there to keep the league alive.

    • @partlycurrent No it's not, it's a dumbed-down version of it. No one thinks of anything other than 11 vs 11 and 90 minute games with offside rule, yellow/red cards & throw ins/corners when they think of football. There's a reason why when you played with your friends as a kid in the school yard it finished 32 - 17. Because there was no offside rule. There's a lot more to football than simply trying to kick a ball in a net. And there's a reason why no one gives a shit about 5-a-side.

      Davis MDavis M6 dagen geleden
    • @Davis M "Football is defined as 11 players on each side, 90 minute games/45 minute halves, offside rule, yellow/red cards, throw ins/corner kicks etc etc" not really mate. If you play 2v2 on one goal without halftimes and cards it's still football.

      partlycurrentpartlycurrent6 dagen geleden
    • @Eric Rerrud11 It's not a matter of opinion. The English were playing a type of football game throughout the middle ages, long before they had any contact with China. The game of football started to take shape in the 16th century, in Cambridge. Over time, rules were added, until they were codified in 1863: 'Cambridge Rules' - look it up. It's entirely possible that different cultures around the world had their own ballgame traditions, which is absolutely the case. But just because China MAY have had a kickball game before anyone else (there's no evidence which proves this), that doesn't mean the heritage of the game we know today called football lies in China. And you still haven't provided any evidence the creation of the English game of football was influenced by the Chinese game, which, by the time the English had contact with China, was virtually extinct.

  • So they wanted a Chinese national team that can qualify for every WC, but instead of investing in the local youth academies, they spent billions buying washed up players from Europe and South America. That is plainly stupid and obviously counter-productive to their original goal. It's not politics that is killing this sport; it's money (and corruption of course).

USA is filled with sooo many talents but the country literally doesn't care about the sport even tho that sport could literally generate more income than Rugby or Basketball could ever imagine. India and China, both have billion of people, yet not even 11 of at least decent players. Indonesia, the country loves football so much, but not in a right way, they simply love football, without actually knowing football.

    • ​@Dr. Gaz Matic "Who else could they vote for?" - we weren't talking about that but fine : why would they need to vote for another party when the CPC is the party of the people/workers? - The CPC has the legitimacy to having fought Japan, kicked out the foreigners, united China and increased immensely the standards of living of the population - China is a socialist, proletarian state with a proletarian party : why would workers vote for capitalists? "It has one party rule and punishes you for criticizing them" - Chinese people criticise their government everyday but I guess you don't follow Chinese forums much - hell they even talk about the Tiananmen events of 1989 and recommend people watch the famous documentary "The Gate of Heavenly Peace" - you only are punished if you threaten to topple the government.....just like everywhere else "I bet you can't say fk the ccp. I can say fk Trump and fk biden anytime I want" - that's your litmus test for declaring which country is democratic and which country isn't? - what a poor grasp on how the world really works
