Rong Hao (Chinese: 荣昊; pinyin: Róng Hào; Mandarin pronunciation: [ɻʊ̌ŋ xâu]; born 7 April 1987) is a Chinese footballer who currently plays for Shanghai Shenhua as a right-footed left-back in the Chinese Super League.
Rong Hao started his football career with Wuhan Guanggu in 2006, making his debut and scoring his first goal for the club on 27 May 2006 in a 1-0 win against Shenyang Ginde. He then played in five more league games at the end of the 2006 season. By the following season, he began to gradually establish himself as a regular for the club despite usually coming on as a substitute; however, Wuhan were suddenly ejected from the top tier and subsequently relegated during the 2008 season after the club's management refused to accept the punishment given to them by the Chinese Football Association after a scuffle broke out on 27 September 2008 in a 1-1 draw against Beijing Guoan. Rong then found himself unable to play any football without a club.
In the 2009 season, newly promoted club Jiangsu Sainty were willing to take Rong on loan. He immediately established himself as the regular for the club and helped guide them to a tenth-place position. Once his loan ended, Rong transferred to fellow top tier side Hangzhou Greentown and helped guide the club to a fourth-place finish, allowing them to play in the AFC Champions League for the first time in the club's history.
On 26 December 2011, Rong transferred to Guangzhou Evergrande along with Zhao Xuri, Li Jianbin and Peng Xinli. Rong was injured for most of the 2012 season and was in no condition to take part in any matches. On 28 February 2018, Rong was loaned to fellow top tier side Shanghai Shenhua for half of the 2018 season.
Rong made his debut for the Chinese national team on 1 June 2009 in a 1-0 win against Iran. After several further friendlies, he then established himself as the first-choice left back under then manager Gao Hongbo and won the 2010 East Asian Football Championship with the national team before being called up to China's squad for the 2011 AFC Asian Cup.
