December 3: Yanbian Fude, a relegated team from the Chinese Super League (CSL) this season, has announced the establishment of the Sunrise Baekdu Tiger Football Academy at an official news conference.
The conference was attended by Yanbian Fude Youth Training Chief, Cu Jian, along with football players Jin Bo and Jin Chengjun, Beijing Sunrise Sports President Su Chao, and other senior officials and representatives.
Early in October, Yanbian Fude started their cooperation with Sunrise Sports, naming Sunrise Football Academy as their designated youth training center.
The main business of the co-branded academy is to provide professional football training for children aged 4 to 12 years old. The coaching team, consisting of Yanbian Fude legends, teachers from Chinese sports colleges and professional European coaches, will bring most advanced youth training concepts and skills to local children.
At the same time, the academy also has plans to partner with operators of football fields, providing a safe and comfortable environment for their young trainees.
