Founded in 2001 as China’s first licensed joint-venture football club, ClubFootball has grown to become one of China’s biggest grassroots football providers.
The club’s activities focus mostly on junior football, delivering coaching programmes in Beijing and Tianjin, and coach education courses around China.
Coaching programmes are delivered by the club’s team of 16 full-time UEFA/FA-qualified European coaches, and run after school and at weekends at partner schools and public venues. The programme is open to boys and girls aged 3 to 18, and ranges from fun introductory courses for 3-year-olds, to competitive league teams and overseas tournaments for advanced students. All sessions are taught in English, with Chinese translation where required, and fair-play and teamwork are emphasized throughout. In 2015, ClubFootball coached over 3,000 students at over 30 venues, and also organized junior leagues contested by over 140 teams.
ClubFootball also delivers Coach Education programmes to teachers, schools and education bureaus across China, both independently and in partnership with the (English) Premier League and British Council as part of the global ‘Premier Skills’ programme.
For adults, the ClubFootball 5-a-side League is the city’s biggest year-round 5-a-side league competition, with 60 corporate and teams taking part.
ClubFootball is proud to count amongst its partners some of the biggest names in football including the (English) Premier League, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, The FA, CFA, BFA, Nike, Nature’s Bounty, MasterCard and many more!
