Huangjia Grandstand : The Asian Cup will be held in another place, when will the Chinese stadium reopen?


2022-05-14: [Article Link Author: Zhang Bin Editor: The worst news came as quickly as possible: on the afternoon of 14 May, the Federation announced that the 2023 Asian Cup would not be held in China and that the alternative venue would be decided. Note that, instead of postponing, the venue was changed directly and China's sponsorship was cancelled. The 2023 Asian Cup was originally hosted by 10 cities in China. On 6 May, the Hangzhou Asian Games, to be held in September this year, and the Chengdu World Student Games, to be held in June, were postponed, with the direct cancellation of the Asian Youth Games. In addition to these three complex competitions, several events, including the World Federation of Field Diamonds and the Shenzhen Station, have been cancelled, and Chinese sports have recently entered a “stagnated” state. The Chinese Asian Cup, 2023, is considered to be the most important and complex sports event that China hosted after the 2008 Beijing Olympics. With more than a year left to prepare, it is now announced that it will be cancelled, somewhat unexpected. One of the 2023 Asian Cup stadiums in Chengdu, Phoenix Hill Stadium, was delivered and the finals of the Cup were held. The Asian Cup was cancelled to the detriment of Chinese sports more than the postponement of the Asian Games and Dayun, the China Super tournament and the CBA’s closed open field. For two reasons: First, with a buffer period of one year, there may be a dynamic change in the situation with regard to prevention and control of the epidemic, both at home and abroad, in order to exchange time for space. If the Asian cup were to be successfully held, it would have become a new starting point for China's sport reintegration into the world. In recent years, the country’s open stance, strong market background, and efficient ability to conduct the competitions have always made China an important option for the world’s major sports organizations to run their competitions, so there have been so many intercontinental races in China’s major cities in recent years. But the epidemic has set a pause. In the past year, sports events in many countries have gradually become fully open to viewers, as has been the case in China. When there is much disagreement between many international sports organizations and China over the way in which the fight is organized, the postponement of the event becomes a compromise solution. One quarter of the finals of the women's tournament, the Bassa women's main game against the 91553 Queens in the field. Take the Hangzhou Asian Games, for example. There are rumours that the Olympic Council wants the Hangzhou Asian Games to be fully open to sports fans in order to guarantee their brand value and influence. However, China’s long-triangular quarantine situation is serious, and the Hangzhou Asian Organizing Committee is unlikely to meet the expectations of the Ao Council. Even if it is conditionally open to some Chinese audiences, the Committee faces considerable resistance. It will affect the brand value of the match; it will also add a high operating cost to the host city, and it will hit the corresponding market enthusiasm and sports marketing strategies, and many industrial planning and marketing programs are at risk of disruption, affecting all firms in the industry chain. In the last two to three years, many businesses in China’s sports industry have already lost a lot of money because of the epidemic, and the postponement of the competition will inevitably result in a tightening of resources, making it harder for businesses to go up and down. Against this background, it is all the more important that the Chinese Asian Cup, 2023, be held successfully. The second, 2023 Chinese Asian Cup was an important step in China's march to the centre of the world's sports arena and a necessary route. The Hangzhou Asian Games were postponed and citizens walked through the propaganda wall with an opening date. Compared to the nature and size of the competition, the Asian Cup is very different from the Asian Games and Dayun. The Games, such as the Asian Games and Dayun Games, are held in one city over a period of about two weeks. But the Asian Cup will be held in 10 Chinese cities, including Beijing and Shanghai, with a total of 24 Asian teams (all mainstream Asian countries) participating for a period of about one month and not of the same size. Although the Chinese Government has never directly demonstrated the true purpose of hosting the 2023 Asian Cup, it is well known that this Asian Cup is being organized by China not only to complete an intra-Asian event. In October 2020, when the Asian Cup Organizing Committee of China was established, the official stated that: “Incorporate the preparation of the Asian Cup into the context of China’s overall football reform and development programme, make full use of the diverse social values of football, and lay a solid foundation for future high-level world football competitions. “A higher-level world football event”, the goal is self-evident, and China wants to hold the World Cup. The holding of the World Cup after Beijing Shao and Beijing was the last big puzzle in the Chinese sports dream, and it was the only way for China to focus its world's eyes again through sporting events — in terms of global influence, interest and market value, the World Cup is actually much higher than the Olympic Games, and both sides are not even quantitative (the data show that the commercial value of the World Cup is about eight times that of the Olympics). The remodeled Beijing Workers' Stadium will be a professional football field. Until then, the two professional stadiums, Shanghai Rainbow Yard, and Tianjin Taida, were the only ones that could be put on the stage. This hardware is not enough to build the world’s main football stage. Taking advantage of the 2023 Asian Cup, several cities, including Qingdao, Xiamen, Dalian, Chengdu, Xian, Chongqing and Suzhou, are investing heavily in the construction of professional football fields. The holding of the 2023 Asian Cup will provide China with a wealth of experience and expertise in running the competition. This will enable China, in terms of both hardware and software, to prepare well for the World Cup. Rather than the Tokyo Olympics, Hangzhou Asians, and Chengdu Dayun, which were temporarily postponed, the decision to cancel the Chinese Asian Cup more than a year earlier seems to have been more proactive, with one less desperate and one more final decision. Is it necessary for the Federation to decide on the Asian Cup so early? The Federation’s official explanation is that it is difficult for the Chinese Organizing Committee to commit and arrange for the Asian Cup next year to be held in a fully open mode. Clearly, the Federation believes that sporting events around the world are well under way, and that they need not expose Asia’s most important sporting events to the risk of being closed and empty. It was also understood that the decision taken by the Federation was not only related to China's current preventive policies, but also to the adverse business development process of the Asian Cup in the country, which was an economic factor. Advertisement of the 2023 Asian Cup Including the 2021 China World Cup, the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, the 2022 Chengdu Dayun and the 2023 China Asian Cup, the large-scale postponement or cancellation of the sporting events planned for China is both unwelcome to China and to international sports organizations. The answer can only be left to time. Although the Chinese Asian Cup has been transformed midway, those fields that have been repaired or are under construction will not be repaired in vain and will become an important part of the cultural life of the citizens of major cities in the future. The purpose of hosting world competitions is never just to organize the game itself. At the same time, these fields will prepare China for the next World Cup. In any case, China is one with the world, and Chinese sports cannot be cut off from world sports for a long time. We still expect China to re-organize sports once the epidemic is over. There must be an open sports event that will mark a real return to normality in Chinese society.
