The Ball Is Round – interesting stuff about football in China

Xinjiang Football – Another land of hope

You may not heard them before – but they are coming. This week over 35,000 attendants came to Xinjiang Sports Stadium for a 中乙 (3rd level) match between Xinjiang Haitang and Tianjin Huochetou. Xinjiang people have been crazy for football for many years, but until this year they never have a professional football team. Experts believe Uighur’s natural fitness and agility are strong advantages to play football, a hopefully good source of talents for the national team.To promote football in Xinjiang, local government set regulation to encourage new county level school to build football pitch and arrange school football team. Let’s wait and see how it goes.

Rumor says Guizhou Maotai Renhe (formerly Shaanxi Renhe)  is reaching Ronaldinho and Arshavin… 

Maotai is the most expensive Baijiu alcohol which are mostly consumed by Chinese government officers. That makes a lot of sense.

Sorry you have leave the stadium during the match

Next time you go to Dalian Jinzhou Stadium as the fan of away team, you may need to prepare for a 70-min match. Fans from Guangzhou and Shanghai claimed they were “forced” to leave the stadium at the 70 minute of the match – the police and security believe that’s the perfect right way to keep the situation safe and harmony.

Also check out the most crazy and passionate commentator in China – Mr “hahaha” Jiao, from Dalian too.
