Beijing Guoan F.C. (simplified Chinese: 北京国安; traditional Chinese: 北京國安; pinyin: Běijīng Guó'ān) is a professional football club that currently participates in the Chinese Super League under licence from the Chinese Football Association (CFA). The team is based in the Chaoyang District in Beijing and their home stadium is the Workers Stadium that has a seating capacity of 66,161. Their majority shareholder is the CITIC Group a state-owned investment company of the People's Republic of China.[1]

The club's predecessor was called Beijing Football Club and they predominantly played in the top tier, where they won several domestic league and cup titles. In December 31, 1992 the club was reorganized to become a completely professional football club making them one of the founding members of the first fully professional top tier league in China. Since then they have gone on to win their first ever league title in the 2009 league season as well as the 1996, 1997 and 2003 Chinese FA Cup.

History[edit]

Early club era[edit]

The club's first incarnation came in 1951 when the local government sports body decided to take part in China's first fully nationalized national football league tournament and decided to form a football team with the best players from Beijing and Tianjin to create the North China team.[2] The team name was taken from the football team in the 1910 multi-sport event Chinese National Games that also represented the same regions.[3] The team ended up finishing fourth in their debut season and with the football league gradually expanding, the players from Beijing and Tianjin were allowed to separate and the local Beijing government sports body was allowed to reform the club as Beijing Football Club in 1955. The club would make its debut appearance in the 1956 season and wore an all white home kit and all red away strip.[4] In the 1956 campaign the club were also allowed to enter their youth team called Beijing Youth B who actually went on to win the league title while Beijing came sixth that season.[5] The club would strengthen their hold on the following seasons when they went out and won the 1957 as well as the 1958 league titles.[6] With these results, the club would become a major force within Chinese football, and with the club's youth team still participating within the top tier, there was a constant supply of players coming into the team to fight for places. Being China's capital city and for their success on the field, the club would become a feeder team for the Chinese national team. This often saw the club unable to complete a full championship schedule and the youth team were often used to represent the club, which did little to diminish Beijing football and actually resulted in the youth team to win the 1963 championship for the second time, showing the strength in depth of the region of Beijing football until 1966 when the Chinese Cultural Revolution halted football within the country.[7] When football returned to the China, Beijing would win the 1973 league title in the newly re-established footballing league.[8] While Beijing once again re-established themselves as major title contenders, they didn't win any major titles until 1982 league title, which was then followed by the 1984 league title and 1985 Chinese FA Cup title. After this period, the club would start to decline in their performances and were relegated for the first time in their history at the end of the 1988 season, however, their time within the second tier was short lived and they won the division title and promotion to the first tier at the end of the 1990 season.[9] In total, Beijing would have won the league title five times during the old Chinese National Football League era before the club was given full professionalism in 1992.

Professionalism[edit]

Beijing Guoan was formed on December 31, 1992, as a result of the Chinese football reform, which was the Chinese Football Association looking to professionalize the whole of the Chinese football league. The club was set up by the CITIC Group a state-owned investment company of the People's Republic of China and the Beijing Municipal Sports Committee.[10] The club would take part take part in the 1994 Chinese Jia-A League season, making them a founding member of the first fully professional top tier league in China and changed their home colors to green to symbolize the change.[4] In their first professional season Beijing finished in a disappointing eighth out of twelve teams and the manager Tang Pengju was relieved of his duties.[11] The club would bring in Jin Zhiyang to manage them the following season and results under his reign improved enough for them to finish the 1995 campaign in the runners-up position.[12] The following season Jin Zhiyang lead Beijing to their first professional trophy when he beat Jinan Taishan Jiangjun 4-1 to lift the 1996 Chinese FA Cup.[13] Jin Zhiyang was able to retain the Cup the following year with a 2-1 victory against Shanghai Shenhua, which impressed the Chinese FA who lured him away from Beijing when they offered him a position with the Chinese national team.[14] The assistant coach Shen Xiangfu stepped into the managerial role and in his debut season he guided the club to third within the league, however in his second season the team slid down to sixth and he left the club.

Foreign influences[edit]

Serbian Milovan Đorić would be Beijing's first foray with a foreign manager when he joined the club at the start of the 2000 league season. His reign was exceptionally short-lived after he lost his first three games of the season before he was replaced with native coach Wei Kexing.[15] At the start of the 2002 league season Beijing hired their second foreign manager in Ljupko Petrović.[16] Foreign influences would continue when in 2003, the club signed a three-year endorsement contract with jointly owned South Korean company Beijing Hyundai, which resulted in the club changing its name to Beijing Hyundai to accommodate this.[17] In 2005 Spanish football club Real Madrid went into negotiations with Beijing on a football develop project.[18] At the start of the 2007 league season two time Chinese FA Cup winner with Chongqing Lifan and Qingdao Beilaite, Lee Jang-soo was hired as the teams manager. The South Korean manager in his debut season guided the club to second within the league. By the 2009 league season the club had returned to the Workers Stadium after it had been renovation for the 2008 Summer Olympics and under Lee Jang-soo's helm it looked as if the club would be winning its first professional league title until a 2-0 defeat from Changchun Yatai on September 15, 2009 saw the club slip to third and Lee Jang-soo was unscrupulously fired with seven games remaining.[19] Former Beijing player Hong Yuanshuo was immediately brought into the team and on the final day of the season Beijing thrashed Hangzhou Greentown F.C. 4-0 to clinch the 2009 league championship.[20]

Rivalries[edit]

Beijing Guoan's fiercest and oldest rivalry is against Shanghai Shenhua and is often referred to as the China Derby.[21] The rivalry with Shenhua is viewed as a manifestation of the rivalry that exist between the cities on which is the most import towards the country, as one is the center of government while the other is the Financial centre of modern commerce within China.[22] With each club being able to claim to having an extensive history spanning successful periods, direct competition for silverware, however rarely coincided until the 1997 league season. With Shenhua having won the 1995 league title and Beijing having won the 1996 Chinese FA Cup both teams looked as if they had the pedigree to win silverware that season and on July 20, 1997 in a vital league game, Beijing thrashed Shenhua 9-1 at the Workers Stadium in Beijing.[23] It would be Beijing's largest victory and Shenhua's greatest defeat ever recorded. Soon after that event both teams would meet again in the 1997 FA Cup final, which saw Beijing win the cup.[24]

The Jing-Jin derby is a local rivalry between Beijing Guoan and neighboring Tianjin Teda.[25] Both teams can trace their histories to the North China team before it split to form the Beijing Football Club and Tianjin Football Club.[5] Since then both clubs have predominately remained within the top tier of Chinese football providing a constant rivalry fixture, which has led to intense matches that have spilled out away from the stadiums and onto the streets that have led to property destruction as well as further intensifying their relationship.[26]
