Hebei Information

Hebei is one of the most recently established clubs in the Chinese Super League, having been founded in 2010. The team is based in Langfang, Hebei, and has been owned by the China Fortune Land Development since 2015.

Hebei plays its games at the Langfang Stadium, which has a capacity of 30,000.

The club has been managed by some big names, with arguably its biggest appointment occurring in 2016 with former Premier League winning coach Manuel Pellegrini. Pellegrini lasted two years at the club before being replaced by former Wales boss Chris Coleman. Coleman’s tenure ended in 2019. Hebei is currently managed by South Korean Kim Jong-Boo.

The club’s all-time scorer is Xuesheng Dong, who scored 36 times for the club, just pipping Ezequiel Lavezzi, who found the back of the net 35 times. The current captain of the club is Zhang Chengdong.

Hebei has fallen on hard times, with its participation in the upcoming season in some doubt. Hebei was one of the biggest spenders in the league, with Chinese Super League players such as Javier Mascherano, Lavezzi, Hernanes and Gervinho formally on its books. 

Hebei History

Hebei was originally owned and founded as part of a co-operation between the Hebei FA and Hebei Zhongji Group. The co-operation quickly fell apart, and in 2011, the Hebei Zhongji Group became the club’s full-time owners. The current owners of China Fortune Land Development took over in 2015 and renamed the club Hebei China Fortune. This name stuck until last season when the club officially became Hebei Football Club.

Hebei first played in the Chinese Super League in 2016 following promotion in 2015. A mainstay ever since, Hebei’s highest league finish has been a 4th place finish in 2017. Hebei has been promoted twice upon starting in the third tier of Chinese football but has never won a league title. Instead, the club was promoted courtesy of winning various playoffs to the top flight.
