Jiangsu Guoxin-Sainty Football Club (simplified Chinese: 江苏国信舜天; traditional Chinese: 江蘇國信舜天; pinyin: Jiāngsū Guóxìn Shùntiān) is a professional Chinese professional football club based in Nanjing, who currently participates in the Chinese Super League while playing their home matches in the Nanjing Olympic Sports Center. The team was originally founded in 1958 as Jiangsu Provincial Team while the current professional football team was established in March 1994. They were also one of the founding members of the first fully professional first tier league in China, the Chinese Jia-A League, however they would struggle within the league until they won promotion back into the top tier at the end of the 2008 season. They would then go on to achieve their best ever league finish when they ended up being runners-up at the end of the 2012 season.

History[edit]

The club was originally founded in April 1958 as Jiangsu Provincial Team by the local government and would take part in the 1959 Chinese National Games where they placed twelfth. They would then join the top tier of the gradually expanding Chinese football league system in 1960, where they came nineteenth out of a possible twenty-five.[1] By 1963, the league had expanded to thirty-nine teams and the Chinese Football Association were looking to only have twenty teams for next season's league system. Jiangsu would unfortunately finish seventh within the group stages, which saw them relegated from the league system.[2] In 1964, they would not take part in any of the divisions but returned to play in the second tier in 1965 where they came seventh in the group stages.[3] The Chinese Cultural Revolution would see the league halted for several seasons, but when it officially returned in 1973, Jiangsu would enter the league back into the top tier where they finished the league in eleventh.[4] Jiangsu's time in the top tier did not last very long, and by the 1978 season, they would find themselves relegated to the second division at the end of the season.[5] For the next several years, Jiangsu would remain a second tier club except for a brief period in 1988, however in 1992 they would have brief revival when they won the second tier title and guaranteed promotion to the first fully professional first tier league, the Chinese Jia-A League, no matter what happened in the 1993 season.[6]

In March 1994, the club gained sponsorship and changed their name to Jiangsu Maint to comply with the requirements to take part in the 1994 Chinese Jia-A League season. However, they struggled with professionalism on and off the field. First, they were relegated at the end of the season, and then due to the stricter operational costs the club, they financially struggled before losing their sponsorship.[7] However, they gained some financial support from several major Chinese businesses, such as Jiangsu TV, Jinling Petrochemical Company, and several Jiangsu tobacco companies as well as some international investment companies came in 1996. The club changed their name to Jiangsu Jiajia to represent this. Even though Jiangsu were able to gain some financial stability, they were still relegated to the third tier at the end of the 1996 season, but only spent one season in there after they won the division league title in 1997.[8] On 7 January 2000, the Jiangsu Sainty International Group decided to take over the club and changed the club's name to Jiangsu Sainty.[9] The new owners did not get off to the best of starts when it was discovered they were unable to control some of their players and coaches from taking bribes, a game in the 2001 season against Chengdu Wuniu when they lost 4-2 was highlighted, and the offending participants were banned for a year while the club had three months to reform and re-apply for a CFA playing license.[10] After promising to clean up the club, the team lingered in the second tier for several years until they brought in Pei Encai to manage the team and win the division title at the end of the 2008 season.[11] In recent years, Jiangsu Sainty has ended their seasons with strong finishes, finishing fourth in the 2011 season and second place in the 2012 season. After Sainty Group was merged into Guoxin Group in 2011, Guoxin Group became the owner of the club. However, the club name remained as Jiangsu Sainty F.C. until January 2014, when they officially changed into Jiangsu Guoxin-Sainty F.C.[12]
