I am taking my notes from the conference and posting here on HorizonWatch some of the the key thoughts that resonated with me.
Children and teenagers in red and yellow kits stretch, run and kick balls. For the next 90 minutes, before regular school classes begin, they will sweat buckets. It is a key component in the infrastructure that China and its football-loving president, Xi Jinping, hope will make the nation a world beater by the middle of the century.
Chinese football is still very bad. Players lack technique and understanding of the game. An auditorium can hold more than 1, people and the main stadium has seats for more than 3, And they enjoy privileges such as access to the Western food canteen, where generous portions of spaghetti and meat are eaten not with chopsticks but with knives and forks.
The first generation involved in this exchange will return to China next year. Even so, according to both foreign and local coaches at the football school, Guangzhou Evergrande would not fare well in any of the major European leagues.
I have to teach the basics over and over again, even with those already playing professionally. Not only was Camacho unable to get China to qualify for the World Cup finals, he also suffered a series of humiliating defeats: He is now the manager of the Gabon national team.
Despite having tens of millions of fans to cheer them on, China are repeatedly humiliated on the football pitch.
But the government has a plan. President Xi expressed three wishes in In seven years from now, the government expects 50 million Chinese people to be playing football, 30 million of those in training at school.
The long-term goal goes way further: And they seldom talk to each other on the field, so coordinating passes and strategies during a match becomes almost impossible.
There are also many competitions to take part in. That is a huge advantage over China, where there are almost no football fields and just a few dozen teams.
Outside of school it can be an expensive sport that is run for profit. Exceptional players will be selected to play for their city, and province. If you are not initially good, or cannot afford to play, opportunities to play are very limited. The absence of freedom makes kids very disciplined but they lack passion, creativity and boldness.
They are afraid of making decisions and shy to speak their minds. The and year-olds he coaches remain silent most of the time. They pay attention to the strategies he explains with diagrams on a board but have trouble adapting them on the pitch. They bow to the teacher at the start of each lesson and remain largely silent until a voice booms from a speaker to end the class.
After lunch in one of the canteens, which are themselves football-pitch-sized, the students diligently return to their dormitories, for a shower and an afternoon siesta. It would be hard for them not to dream of football:CHAPTER VIII – STRATEGIES TO REVITALIZE MATURE BRAND Introduction This chapter is related to the strategies for revitalizing the mature brand.
