Guoan season ticket registration begins today

Beijing Guoan season ticket registration began today and will continue until December 29. For the second straight year, ticket prices have gone up and will cost RMB600 for all 15 home matches, at least one CFA Cup match, and three Asian Champions League matches.

The club has said they will bump up the season ticket allocation this season and it is likely to be close to 25,000. Once again, this first stage is only a registration because if there are over 20,000 applications for season tickets, fans will be subjected to the luck of the draw. Tickets are divided up into three groups, general season tickets, the fan club section lv se kuang biao (“Green Hurricane”) and the “ultras” supporter’s section, Yulinjun (“Royal Army”).

Despite talks that prices would be set based on stands, the club is going with their traditional one price for all, and its a RMB100 raise over last season’s price.

To register for season tickets, go to Unfortunately, the site is all in Chinese and unable to handle registration by foreigners as it requires a Chinese ID card to sign up.

This means that foreigners interested in a season ticket must travel to Yongle’s offices in Beijing, located at 16 Wangjiayuan Hutong, southwest of Worker’s Indoor Arena. For more specific information, call 010-58103166. If you have any questions or are interested in joining one of the supporter’s sections, feel free to leave them in the comments section.

    600 RMB for 19 (or more) matches is a little under 32 RMB per game.

    That is pretty good value by “Yang ren” standards. How about by Lao Beijing standards?

      It’s getting to be at the higher end of some people’s budget, but it’s still okay for most people. At the same time, it is definitely not cheap for students and a lot of people are disappointed they didn’t offer varied price tickets this season.

    Was there even a 1200rmb option? Anyway, i’m guessing you’re in the middle of block 10 or 11. This year i’m also sitting in the prawn sandwich, champagne swilling section and hope it’s not going to be too boring as I like to get involved with supporting the side. Our support group from last year has moved from under the cover of block 13 to behind the goal, under the big screen in block 5. Not great for electrical storms which rage from May to September.

      There are one or two fan restaurants, but they will be absolutely packed/reservation only. My only suggestion would be to find a small, neighborhood spot with a tv tuned to the game on, there are sure to be people paying attention to it and some banter.

      Don’t want to be thought of as unhelpful, here are places that are “fan” restaurants:
      One more would be former player Gao Leilei’s Japanese restaurant at the northern end of Nanluoguxiang

      Unfortunately, like I previously said, they will all be reservation only or absolutely packed tomorrow night. Also, unlike overseas, here there is no culture of going to the bar to watch a match. However, like I said previously, many smaller restaurants that have a tv will be tuned into the match and anywhere that has the match on is sure to have fans who are watching it closely.
