Liu Jun (simplified Chinese: 刘军; traditional Chinese: 劉軍; pinyin: Liú Jun; born September 25, 1983 in Qingdao, Shandong) is a Chinese football goalkeeper, who plays for Qingdao Jonoon in the China League Two.
As a youngster Liu Jun would be called up to the various levels of the Chinese national youth teams while he was with the Guangdong Mingfeng youth team. Despite playing for a team who were at the bottom of the Chinese pyramid he would, however be unable to break into the senior team of Guangdong Mingfeng. The club would decide not to continue to play within the professional Chinese pyramid anymore and Liu Jun was allowed to leave to continue with his studies where he went to Qingdao University and played amateur football with them.
Despite playing at a lower level Liu Jun was brought into the Chinese Super League by Qingdao Zhongneng (now known as Qingdao Jonoon) as back up for their goalkeeper Liu Zhenli during the 2007 league season. He would have to wait a whole season before he could make his debut for Qingdao on July 6, 2008 against Beijing Guoan in a 1-0 defeat. A constant understudy within the team he would only become a consistent member of the starting lineup after first choice keeper Liu Zhenli was injured in September 2009 and while he impressed for a short period Liu Zhenli quickly regained his position.
