Ma Shuanyou, secretary general of the China Football Development Foundation, said in a speech that during the “14th Five-Year Plan” period, China has entered a new stage of development, and the people’s yearning for a better life will place higher demands on sports development. The comprehensive revitalization of the “Three Big Balls” has made sports an indispensable core content in the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. It is the key to achieving high-quality and in-depth development of competitive sports and national fitness, and an important engine for the overall development of the sports industry. During the “14th Five-Year Plan” period, how to promote the revitalization and development of the “Three Big Balls” more efficiently and scientifically has a bearing on the overall development of sports.
Ma Shuanyou said that during the “14th Five-Year Plan” period, the foundation intends to support the development of county football as an important starting point, mainly for the central and western regions. The popularization of youth football in the county is a top priority, including the implementation of public welfare projects such as children’s fence football, infant football education, and football books and children’s books. It is hoped to promote the integration and development of football popularization, improvement of people’s livelihood and rural revitalization, and enhance the sense of acquisition, happiness, and identity of the vast majority of county people.

Peng Weiyong, deputy director of the Economics Department of the State Sports General Administration, said that the performance of China’s “Three Big Balls” is still far from the world’s advanced level. In his view, in addition to the weak social foundation and lack of talents, a prominent factor is the insufficient investment in the stadium foundation, the lack of stadiums, the low degree of openness, and the low utilization rate. The next step will be to build community football stadiums according to local conditions, focus on supporting youth training bases, strengthen the construction of professional football venues, build high-level national team training bases, and continuously improve the development level of the “Three Big Balls” to meet the people’s expectations for the “Three Big Balls” .
In addition, Zhu Ying, former deputy inspector of the Youth and Youth Department of the State Sports General Administration, Fang Liang, head of FIBA China, Scott Moon, CEO of City Football Group China, and Beijing Guoan Football The club’s technical department director Wei Kexing, the former Beijing Men’s Volleyball coach Li Mu and other guests also took the stage and gave a thorough analysis of the problems and opportunities in the development of China’s “Three Big Balls”.
On the same day, the Planning and Construction Office of the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Sports released the “Key Index Data of Beijing Sports Sites in 2020”, focusing on sharing venue data related to Beijing’s three major balls. (End)
