Shanghai Port History

Shanghai Port are one of the newest professional teams in Chinese football, having only been formed in December 2005 by former Chinese international Xu Genbao.

Their first season in professional football was in 2006 when they started in the third tier of the National League. After only their second season, they were promoted to the second division.

They quickly established themselves at a higher level and eventually won promotion to the Chinese Super League in 2012.

It didn’t take the players long to adapt to the competition and they finished as runners-up in 2015. They continued their push for a first title by finishing in the top three over the next two seasons.

After coming so close in the previous season, Shanghai Port finally won their first Super League title in 2018. The 27 goals scored by forward Wu Lei was vital to their success, and he finished as the league’s top scorer. The title marked an extraordinary rise for a club that had only been formed 12 years ago.
