Chinese Inter Milan fans beat Chinese AC Milan fan

AC and Inter Milan are both in Beijing for Saturday night’s Italian Super Cup clash.  The sides both arrived an hour apart at Capital Airport and were met by massive crowds.  It’s hard to walk around Beijing the past few days without seeing somebody in a Milan jersey.  Yesterday, the blue side of Milan held a ticketed practice at Worker’s Stadium and a massive crowd showed up.  Of course it included one stupid individual wearing an AC Milan jersey, as you should have guessed, a brawl ensued in which Chinese fans fought over two Italian sides they’ve only ever watched on tv that play in a city they’ll never go to.  Go figure…

Brandon Chemers aka B. Cheng aka A Modern Lei Feng – is a name which may be familiar to many in the Chinese blogosphere. He currently serves as Editor-in-Chief for Wild East Football and is one of the lonely souls writing about Chinese football in English for the last 10 years. Chemers' credentials are second to none – his former blog focused not only on the fortunes of his beloved Beijing Guoan FC, but a multitude of other aspects of Beijing life. He’s deservedly built a reputation in the Chinese blogosphere as an insightful observer of not only Chinese football, but also the wider picture of life in modern China and its many layers. For WEF, beyond writing about Guoan, he often focuses on fan culture and the business of Chinese football.
