Beijing Guoan 2012 Photo Recap 1: Outside Worker’s Stadium

With the 2012 season still a few months away, I’ve decided to go through my pictures and share a few images from the past season. I’m an average photographer at best, for far more interesting shots, check out “Golden Tooth Brother”, a professional photographer who does an amazing job capturing the fan experience.  This will be a three part series, the first one showing the color of the matchday experience at Worker’s Stadium, focused mainly on Gongti North Road and the North Gate of the stadium.

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.
