What do you think of Chinese soccer?
Cui Yongli, Director of Sport Training
"Chinese soccer remains relatively underdeveloped. We all feel that there is something missing at the grassroots level that has resulted in the overall lack of development. So comparatively speaking, there is a large gap between soccer in China and the way it is in other Asian and western countries. A comprehensive research shows that the German youth training system is very impressive. They have support from the government and they consider training youngsters to be of national importance. After over 10 years of hard work, they have made great strides in their youth training program. This includes government investment and technical guidance. They urge the country to participate in soccer. If someone likes soccer, they will get the training and the technical guidance. This is not seen in any other country in the world. Over the last few years, I have been working on the youth training program here. It is something people have been hoping for."
Zhang Jie, Director of Information Products
"This youth training system isn't just available online. It will be combined with offline products to form a complete training system. And we will design a complete and systematic product online. Apart from online education, we have other things like interactive communities and e-commerce. So basically we want to form an all-round human resource system which includes a database of resources for both trainees and coaches. That will be combined with bringing in foreign players sending our own domestic players abroad. This will form a complete cycle of the entire system than comprises more than just online education. In the future, we hope to inspire the country through creating a soccer loving atmosphere and eventually get more people involved. We would also like to provide additional services for soccer schools at all levels."
Skye Hu, Vice President
"We hope that this Kegoal sports platform will become the most professional sports community in China. People like me who are interested in soccer can find everything they need on this platform. For instance, they can improve a particular skill through our online education, or get a glimpse of the sporting culture in the west. They can even look for partners who share the same sporting interests and play with them. So we want it to become a big interactive community that caters to the whole nation."
Jay Zhang, General Manager
"Kegoal is an interactive sports community. We started off with soccer among other sports. We want to realize our dreams. Keep aiming for our goal. Let the dreams live on."
