Tianjin Songjiang Football Club (Chinese: 天津松江; pinyin: Tiānjīn Sōngjiāng) is a professional Chinese football club who play at the 22,320 seater Tianjin Tuanbo Football Stadium based in Tianjin, China. The club was founded on June 6, 2006 and they are currently owned by the Tianjin Songjiang Sports Culture Industry Co. Ltd. Starting at the bottom of the Chinese football pyramid the club won promotion to the second tier at the end of the 2010 league season and have since remained in the Chinese league one division.


On June 6, 2006 the Tianjin Binhai Holdings Limited company would form a new football team based in Hohhot called Hohhot Binhai and would name former Chinese international player Han Jinming as their manager. They would move into the Hohhot People's Stadium while taking part at the bottom of the Chinese pyramid within the third tier at the start of the 2007 league season. By May 5, 2007 Tianjin Songjiang Sports Culture Industry Co. Ltd would take a controlling interest within the club and hired another former Chinese international player in Hao Haidong to be the clubs general manager.[1] When the club finished in a disappointing fifth within the group stages of the division it was decided that the club needed significant restructuring, which saw Hao Haidong named as Chairman, Han Jinming moved to General management, Zhang Xiaorui was named as the new manager and lastly the entire team was moved to Tianjin to play within the Hedong Sports Centre.[2]

While under Zhang Xiaorui's reign results gradually improved, however while the club were constant play-off contenders they could not gain promotion and he was soon replaced by the Belgium Patrick De Wilde who guided the club to a runners-up spot and promotion at the end of the 2010 league season.[3] By the following season the club had already moved into the 60,000 seater Tianjin Olympic Center Stadium, however despite their grand settings the team would struggle within the division and narrowly avoided relegation at the end of the season.[4] This saw Patrick De Wilde exit soon after and the club decided to promote his assistant Hao Haitao (whose also Hao Haidong's cousin) into the management chair.
