SportsTalk December 22 News Recently, Chinese Football Association Chairman Song Kai and FIFA Chairman Infantino met in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. This means that the new Chinese Football Association, led by Song Kai, has begun a new plan to use “external forces” to promote the development of Chinese football. “Guangzhou Daily” wrote an article that a new idea of ​​the new Chinese Football Association is to advocate “opening up”.

Since Song Kai took office as chairman of the Chinese Football Association on October 16, a prominent impression he has given the outside world is to “break the ice” for China’s football diplomacy. strong desire. During this meeting with Infantino in Saudi Arabia, Song Kai introduced to Infantino that the Chinese government continues to support the development of football. At present, the Chinese Football Association has reached an in-depth cooperative relationship with FIFA for the latter to provide technical support to the Chinese Football Association.

During this meeting in Saudi Arabia, one of the most important wishes expressed by Song Kai to Infantino was that he hoped that the Chinese Football Association could Host international youth football events. In this context, if China wants to bid for world football competitions, it can only target the U20 Men’s and Women’s World Youth Championships and the U17 Men’s and Women’s World Youth Championships. If the Chinese Football Association wants to apply for the International Youth World Cup, it can target the 2025 Men’s World Youth Championship at the earliest, followed by the 2026 Women’s World Youth Championship, the 2027 Men’s World Youth Championship, and the 2028 Women’s World Youth Championship.

“Guangzhou Daily” believes that the Chinese Football Association’s active bid to host international youth competitions has two positive significances. First of all, the level of domestic youth training can be improved, thereby creating greater space for the talent pool of the men’s and women’s national football teams in the future. Secondly, due to the failure of the Chinese Football Association to compete for FIFA directors earlier this year, no one was elected to the AFC Executive Committee, thus losing the right to speak in the AFC in the next few years. If the bid to host an international youth competition is successful, the Chinese Football Association will have more direct channels to maintain close contact with the various powerful departments of FIFA. This can also in turn balance the AFC and make it more competitive in the future national team, AFC Champions League, etc. Be in a better position for important events.

In addition, the Chinese Football Association has recently issued a “Notice on Soliciting Opinions on Policies Related to the Professional League in the 2024 Season” to all clubs in the third-tier leagues, and conducted a survey on each club through a questionnaire. In the survey questionnaire, It involves the league’s foreign aid policy, including increasing or reducing the number of foreign aid quotas, whether the number of foreign aid registrations and the number of players on the field should be consistent, and whether to increase the number of young foreign aid quotas. It can be seen that a new idea of ​​​​the new Chinese Football Association is to advocate “openness”.
