February 20th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Football, Government

Good news for football fans in Beijing! The capital city will stage an International Football Festival this summer, with a number of big team names included, according to Beijing Municipal Football Administrative Center.

China Sports Review previously told you that the Italian Super Cup will be played in Beijing on August 8th, China’s first ever National Fitness Day. Before that, Manchester United, the world champion club, will come to play Beijing Guo’an in July as part of the club’s Asian tour, with date still undecided. It’s reported that Man Utd will also travel to Shandong Province for a friendly with Shandong Luneng, the CSL defending champion.

Also in July, the Barclays Asia Trophy, a friendly four-teams football tournament held in Asia every two years, will finally come to China’s mainland. Three Premiership teams, Totham Hotspurs, Hull City and West Ham United, will compete with Beijing Guo’an for the trophy, beginning from July 28.
