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

HITC Sevens

611tn visningar116

    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.

      That moment when Iceland has scored more goals in the World Cup than China

      HA HA HA HA HA..................................... LOL !

    3. Bob Boberson

      Of course China thinks their Super League is an "emerging power" in football. That's what China does.

    4. Fabio Artos Cassone

      Like USA's soccer NASL in 80s

    5. R.Mageddon

      Just like everything in China... Big claims and poor quality.

      You need to turn the amount of adverts down. 9 adverts in 18 mins..... that's the most I've seen in a video before

    9. Eric Johnson

      America has it's faults but so many countries don't have access to drugs or weed. Glad I wasn't born in China. All those cameras around....you'd be murdered by the Government just for some bud! Ridiculouslessly stupid.

    10. Vu Nguyen

      The Chinese Super League is the NASL of the 70's.

    11. Marc S.

      They should learn from the USA. Americans create their own sports that nobody else plays (besides basketball) and then call themselves world champions.

    12. Trucker

      WhT you mean that league that paid the highest wages on earth despite having no one in the least bit interested in it has gone bust?

      1. partlycurrent

        I'm shocked!


      I took no interest in soccer at all. but YT was thinking I love football / soccer. I don't know why.

    14. Rue Smale

      Watching this from Beijing, vpn. Honestly it’s the big European clubs that Chinese kids follow.

    15. AngKionG

      Chinese should do away with football.

    16. JS2000

      I've said it many times that English football fans need to be seriously careful what they wish for when these Chinese and Middle East Billionaires come trying to buy the football club.

    17. AORourke

      10.47 that’s a Gaelic ball not a (English) football. Doesn’t matter I know, just saying

    18. Andy F

      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.

    19. Panos OT

      Oh My Goal's next video: What the hell happened to Alfie from HITC Sevens?!

    20. just me

      This is a rally interesting story. Many countries have a strong popular interest but can't seem to get their act together. China, Indonesia and India are three massive countries with very poor national football teams.

    22. Scottie B

      F**k China and their tyrannical government. Couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch of murderers. There are so many here in the States that defend them constantly, especially our "new" administration. Any informed thinker sees through the Beijing smog. Well, at least we don't have suicide nets on our buildings ... yet.

    23. KEVIN

      Chinese Super League lower than championship (English 2 div) Chinese Second Messi or Ronaldo= all bulsht China with football: 90% of the country is thinking China is better than India Well.. that 3 is True..

      china is being put under sanctions in the near future theres a reason for that in 2013 they abolished 1 child policy. this is ur time. as sanctions sink in folks must boycott china also forcing the modernization of china not hardware software rather. boycott china

      If there is one thing you make fun of in China and the whole nation will follow, is Chinese soccer.

      I bet TEXIERA is glad he joing Chinese league instead of LIVERPOOL he only could of won a PREMIER LEAGUE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE SUPER CUP FIFA WORLD CLUB CUP But I think he'd rather win the Chinese league 😂😂😂

    32. Shane Kelley

      I never think of China as anything positive, Greed, Corruption, Murder, Diseases and oh that old favorite Communism.

    33. Dialectics Junkie

      As a Chinese football fan... this is just the same old 😂 we're so unfazed by it. It's the reason why many of us prefer to support foreign club teams than pay much attention to the CSL, because it's such a joke

    34. El mesías del gol

      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.

    35. Marty G

      @10:18 you used a picture of Irish ☘️ Gaelic Football not soft English football 🙃

      China league is like that one MMORPG dude, crazy stats crazy armor crazy items pay to win but noob as hell to the point it just garbage.

    44. Eric Rerrud11

      Wow so China invented football, interesting

      1. Davis M

        @partlycurrent You agree. That's good.

      2. partlycurrent

        @Davis M sure thing buddy

      3. Davis M

        @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.

      4. partlycurrent

        @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.

      5. Davis M

        @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.

    45. Colum Counihan

      At 10:17 Xi is pictured kicking a Gaelic football in Ireland and not a soccer ball. Boy I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder.

      Pointless league


      Basketball, Table Tennis and even badminton are more popular in China than football (soccer). Is it true?

    50. SergioSkywalker _

      I remembered the CSL fans said that the Their league is better than the MLS. MLS is producing top talent, while CSL was buying has-beens.

    51. Macho Fantastico

      The Chinese Super League is nothing but a retirement home for professional players. Not surprised things are changing over there. I do think it could be worrying for Chinese owned football teams like Wolverhampton Wanderers.

    52. Federico di Giulio

      Also relevant to mention that inter players have not had their wages paid for several months now. Other teams were relegated to the lowest levels for much less financial struggle

      Football is the best reflection of a country and its culture. All the shocking things have happened with Chinese football over the years are the exact mirror of what the country is like. It's not shocking at all.

    55. Ploke Newo78

      Meanwhile in America the game is getting more and more popular by the year. Some clubs already have fan bases the size of some Euro premier leagues.

      This video sucks!!! It is not specify anything but revealing some kind of bitterness towards China at different points. Jesus Christ!!! This is probably his worst video. All the others have a broader scope and are left to the viewers to conclude whatever which way they want, this is a joke 😅😅

    61. xkumanekox

      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).

    62. Peter Helmore

      who knows hitc sevens may be bombed by the c-i-n-s-

    63. MrPmc1983 McMental

      Why would anyone want to go to China ? Obviously people chase money but imagine living in a place where literally within a mile there are concentration camps, organ harvesting..... no human rights and absolutely horrendous animals cruelty like boiling, skinning and beating dogs cats that are alive to death because their stupid traditions think it makes them taste better 🤮🤮🤮🤮 what a disgusting place to live !

      When professional players wants to go and take an expensive shit...china is their destination.

    67. Fredy Mendez

      Always know this !! Brazilian players flop at 29 and once you got them in the Chinese league you just accelerated that decline. At my if you disagree or get triggered by my statement. Yes it’s true all players decline getting older but Brazilian players notoriously decline fast as their greatest players all declined real fast!!!

      When your citizens can’t afford to attend a football match or do not have the time because of their ridiculous working schedules what do you expect. Improve the lives of your citizens and then maybe frivolous ventures such as this might stand a chance

    73. Oof

      It stills baffles me that 4 of the most populated nations have shit football management. 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.

      And they wanted to remove salary caps from the MLS too soon.

      1. sars cov

        ​@Francis Nwadike what's happening in China happened to the NASL, of New York Cosmos, because there were no salary caps. They got to increase the salary cap slowly as the sport gets more popular in America.

      2. Francis Nwadike

        It will be good for them

    84. Glenn Chua. Hian Beng

      Basically it is a fate league! If they are so good, why can't they go into Asian CL?? Don't understand why those international foreigner players drop their standard because of the BIG MONEY! AT the end what do they get??

    85. Laurent Vimeney

      Xin Jinping is not a dictator you idiot. Every study conducted by Western institutions over decades acknowledge the fact that a vast part of the population support the CPC and recently a Harvard study found that 95% of Chinese people support the central government.

      1. Laurent Vimeney

        ​@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

      2. Dr. Gaz Matic

        Who else could they vote for? Lol 😆 It has one party rule and punishes you for criticizing them. I bet you can't say fk the ccp. I can say fk Trump and fk biden anytime I want

      3. Laurent Vimeney

        @Roe Jorgan And why is that ? Do you realize how far the Chinese have come since 1949 ? And since all this massive improvement of their standards of living happened under the leadership of the CPC why is it not good that Chinese support the CPC ? What's the problem with a people's/workers' party supported by the people/workers?

      4. Roe Jorgan

        And that's no good

    86. Edward Kuoch

      What china should have done is instead of buying foreign players they should have tried to get the best coaches. The tactics in CSL are outdated from 2006. It's like the Serie A back in 2006 Foul, Fight, Counter Attacks and Longball. But Qatar have good coaches and good players coming up.

      It's interesting to think about the women's national team too. They were a bit of a powerhouse in international tournaments in the 90s and into the 2000s, but it seems like everyone else is developing faster and more effectively in recent years.
