A lot has changed in Chengdu in the last 12 years. Giant buildings emerged from construction sites, new metro lines popped up regularly and the city’s footprint expanded by the hour. One thing that has remained constant through this transformation is the Chengdu International Football League.

Formed in 2011 as a sporting outlet for the growing number of people settling in Chengdu from abroad, thousands of players from all across the world have made their way to pitches in all corners of Chengdu every Saturday without fail. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, there aren’t many nations in between that haven’t been represented.

Now in co-operation with the Chengdu Football Association, the league provides competitive 8-a-side league matches that take place every Saturday. The 2023 league starts on October 14th.
