What On Earth Is Going On In The Chinese Super League?

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.

  • 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

  • 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 M10 dager siden
    • @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.

      partlycurrentpartlycurrent10 dager siden
    • @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.
