Shanghai Shenhua CSL 2012 fixtures confirmed

With a mere 11 days to go before the season kicks off, Shanghai Shenhua’s Chinese Super League 2012 fixtures have finally been confirmed. There are no changes to the preliminary schedule that was published several weeks ago, despite rumours of the home and away dates against Beijing Guoan being swapped, and Nanchang Hengyuan’s abrupt metamorphosis into Shanghai Shenxin – Shenhua’s impromptu derby opponents will be based in the outer suburb of Jinshan in the far southwest of the city – a journey which can take two hours or so from downtown Shanghai.

Almost all of the games this year kick off at 8pm, cutting it a bit fine for catching the last metro trains from Hongkou station. Last year games tended to kick-off at 7.45pm.

The season gets off with a bang to say the least – with derbies against Jiangsu, Beijing and Hangzhou in the first month, a mouth-watering  clash against defending champions Guangzhou Evergrande in their third home game. So Chinese Super League fans of all persuasions will get an early indication of how the things are going to play out this year with the influx of new talent coming to China.

The other notable home clashes for those of a Shenhua persuasion are fairly spread out – a mid-summer clash at home to Beijing, the visit of Hangzhou Greentown on August 4, old rivals Shandong Luneng on April 28, and a new derby against Shanghai Shenxin on May 12.

Sadly, Shenhua fans’ hopes of their away trip to Qingdao coinciding with the cities annual beer festival have been dashed again – the game on July 1 takes place around a month before the internationally renowned drinking event.

Please note, kick-off times, dates and venues are subject to sudden change, before setting off to any of these games be sure to check the club’s official website.

UPDATE: now has the entire final Chinese Super League 2012 schedule.
