From The WEF Family To Your Family: Happy Chinese New Year!

If you’ve been watching the news lately , you’ve surely caught mention that the “largest annual human migration” is once again upon us, as Chinese return home to celebrate Spring Festival (Chinese New Year).  The clubs have all returned home from winter training in Kunming or Hainan to celebrate the holiday. We want to wish all our readers a happy, healthy, and prosperous Year of the Dragon! We also hope you’ll forgive us since we’ll be busy lighting off some fireworks, eating massive meals of dumplings, drinking copious amounts of baijiu and ignoring this blog for the next 5 days or so. Again, thank you for making this a great year for this blog and enjoy the holiday!

A number of Chinese Super League clubs have gotten involved in wishing their fans a happy holiday, here’s a selection of them below:

Hangzhou Greentown’s coaching staff, led by new manager Takeshi Okada:

The entire Beijing Guoan squad comes together to pass on their new year cheer to the fans:

Yang Hao of Shaanxi Guizhou Renhe wishes the club’s new fans a happy new year:

Guangzhou Evergrande does it up, of course in a very, very gold room to match the club’s riches:

Liaoning’s coach Ma Lin and some of the player’s pass on CNY wishes:

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.
