The club are the brainchild of the former manager of Guangdong Sunray Cave, Cao Yang, who, along with the support of the Meizhou municipal government, provided the early funds for the team to be created. Further investment then came from Wei Real Estate Development. The club’s early players were assembled from a myriad of different teams from across the Guangdong region and were managed by Yang himself. Yang has managed the side on three separate occasions.

The side are currently managed by Milan Ristić, who has been managing the team since January 2021. He was able to guide them to promotion is his first season in charge.

Meizhou Hakka History

The club were formed in 2013 and have enjoyed a fast rise up into China’s premier division.

Meizhou Hakka started life in the third tier of Chinese football and achieved promotion in 2015. The team spent six seasons in the second division before achieving promotion last season by finishing second in the league.

This is the first season that Meizhou Hakka will have competed in the Chinese Super League table, and many are predicting that they will be among the relegation candidates once the season ends. 

They finished four points behind Wuhan Three Towns, who are also playing in the Chinese Super League for the first time this season. 

Much hope will rest on the shoulders of Chisom Egbuchulam, who has scored 24 goals in 46 appearances for Meizhou Hakka. He is yet to play in the Super League, but fans of Meizhou Hakka will be hoping that the Nigerian forward can fire them to safety.
