Ensuring that the competition system is fair, the Super League will play 30 rounds in the new season
According to Chen Xuyuan, Chairman of the National Football Association, the Chinese Super League will most likely follow the competition system in the 2021 season. Perfection is a delicate task with great technical content. According to the Chinese Football Association and related parties, next season’s Chinese Super League will mainly promote the”staged tournament system.” In order to ensure the fairness and justice of the competition, the whole season plans to play 30 rounds and 240 games. In other words, in terms of form, strive to implement the”double round” competition system. The design and implementation of the competition plan must still strictly meet the needs of epidemic prevention, and ensure the health and safety of personnel as the first priority. Once the relevant competition conditions meet the needs of epidemic prevention, even if the Chinese Super League adopts the game system in the new season, it does not rule out the possibility of resuming the home and away system in the later stage. The competition department of the Chinese Football Association will refine various plans in the near future, and make timely adjustments to the plans based on realistic factors such as the epidemic.
According to the practice, the Chinese Football Association will convene relevant personnel to”layout” the new season every time the professional league of the current season ends. Just after the championship and runner-up finals of the Chinese Super League last week, Chen Xuyuan, chairman of the Chinese Football Association, publicly disclosed that in the new season, the Chinese Super League will continue to adopt the game system with a high probability in combination with the actual situation such as the epidemic. Chen Xuyuan also revealed that even if the competition system is adopted, the specific competition methods will be adjusted compared to this season.
In fact, the main purpose of the Chinese Football Association to coordinate the competition rules is nothing more than two aspects; first, to ensure the fairness and justice of the competition itself; second, to ensure the integrity and standardization of the Super League by improving the competition system. In order to maintain the image and interests of the league.
It is precisely with this demand that the Chinese Football Association held a special working meeting on issues related to the new season’s league competition system on Thursday morning. Although the meeting did not produce any resolutions. However, the Chinese Football Association has a clearer direction for the full restoration of the”staged competition system” and the full restoration of the series of events sponsored by the Association.
Although there is a high probability that the Chinese Super League will adopt the competition system in the new season, compared to the “two-stage, group stage + knockout” plan this season, the competition plan of the Chinese Super League in the new season will still appear obvious. Adjustment. For example, in the new season, the Chinese Super League will strive to play 240 games in all 30 rounds, regardless of whether it finally adopts the game system or restores the home and away system. In other words, in a season, each Super League team and the other 15 teams will play a double round of matches. In this way, it is possible to avoid the recurrence of controversy and reproaches caused by frequent”accidents” in the second stage of the Super League this season.
In the new season, the Chinese Super League wants to play a full 30 rounds. Actually, several objective conditions need to be met. Among them, the most important factor affecting the implementation of the competition system is the”epidemic prevention work.” With the active cooperation of the sports management department, the Chinese Football Association, the Suzhou and Dalian divisions and other leagues, the 2020 Chinese Super League will run safely and smoothly. However, the complexity and variability of the domestic and international epidemics deserves high vigilance from all parties. In other words, whether the Super League in the new season has the conditions to play a full 30 rounds, and even whether it can start smoothly, must depend on the actual situation of the domestic epidemic at that time.
In addition, the tight schedule of various international events in 2021 has actually brought practical problems to the Chinese Football Association in designing the competition plan for the new season of the Super League. For example, the AFC has previously publicly confirmed that the Qatar World Cup Asian Finals 40 must be completed in June, and the 12 finals will start in September. If the relevant schedule is implemented, it means that next year’s national men’s football preparation and competition tasks will be extremely difficult. As per usual practice, the Chinese Football Association will focus on”taking care of” the competitive interests of the national football team in the design of the Chinese Super League schedule, and even”make way” for the national football team’s preparations. So roughly estimated that the time needed for the national football team to prepare and play is about 4 months.
From the perspective of the AFC’s adoption of the game system to ensure the operation of the AFC Champions League this season, the possibility of the AFC Champions League following the game system in the new season is also very high. Under this circumstance, the attitude of the Chinese Super League participating clubs to respond to the AFC next year actually needs to actively communicate with the Chinese Football Association. Therefore, even if the Chinese Super League can start next season in March and April next year, the period left for the Super League to finish the game is not very surplus. If the league”gave way” for the national football, then it does not rule out the possibility of the new season of the Super League before the start of the top 12 in September. The Chinese Football Association must also take precautions for this, prioritize all possible accidents and difficulties, and then design multiple plans. In the words of relevant people from the Association, “We must adjust the plan according to the changes in the situation and finally form a feasible plan.”
It is understood that if the Chinese Super League confirms the use of the game system in the new season, the game may be divided in 3 or more stages are carried out in stages. In view of the sincerity of Suzhou and Dalian in hosting the Super League matches this season, the high-quality conditions and capabilities, and the meticulous and thorough prevention of epidemics, the Chinese Football Association will still focus on the selection of venues for the Super League in the new season. These two cities. And because some cities in Jiangsu Province have made important contributions in hosting the Chinese Super League, the Football Association Cup, the Chinese Football Association, Women’s League and other matches this season, the various domestic competitions next season will not rule out being concentrated in the”Suzhou, Wuxi and Changzhou” areas and other areas in Jiangsu Province. Possibility of city holding.
Of course, the task of hosting the event is very important. In addition to considering the experience, economic strength, and venue conditions of the event, the Chinese Football Association also needs to take into account factors such as weather. Therefore, once the new season of the Super League is dispersed to 3 or more divisions, then the Chinese Football Association may also further expand the scope of the field candidates. For example, in autumn and winter every year, cities in Guangdong Province are more suitable for football matches than cities in northern provinces of my country.
It should be noted that the Chinese Football Association has never rejected the restoration of the home and away system. The main reason why the association promotes the competition system is mainly because the domestic epidemic situation is unpredictable. Recently, there have been new cases of new coronavirus infections in Tianjin and Shanghai respectively, which has actually attracted the attention of the Chinese Football Association. From this point of view, the restoration of the home and away system in the initial stage of the new season of the Super League is likely to be unrealistic, and it is difficult for related plans to be approved by relevant parties. In this case, the Chinese Football Association has to further refine the game system plan. If it is said that when the Chinese Super League is in the middle of the new season, the domestic epidemic situation is well controlled and the relevant conditions meet the needs of epidemic prevention, then the league does not rule out the possibility of resuming the home and away system halfway. At present, including the club, all parties understand the difficulties encountered by the Chinese Football Association in the new season’s competition arrangement.
