Development Area Stadium History

Since first opening in 2002 the Development Area Stadium has hosted a combination of Chinese Super League and Chinese League One matches. The resident team, Changchun Yatai only earned promotion to the highest level of the football pyramid in 2006 after finishing runners up in the 2005 season.

Known locally to fans as the “Amir Tigers”, the team has since established itself as a regular of the Superleague even surprising fans in 2007 by winning the Championship and coming second in 2009. This resulted in The Development Area Stadium hosting matches of the Asian Champions League for the first time in its history in the following seasons.

In 2008 Chanhcun Yatai welcomed Australian’s Adelaide United and the Pohang Steelers from Korea to The Development Arena, with the 2010 edition of the competition drawing the north-east Chinese team with the Kashima Antlers from Japan and once again a South Korean Side, the Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors.

Although The Tigers are yet to progress to the knock out stages of the tournament, the inclusion in Asia’s Premier club competition bodes well for the future of the club with the Development Area multi-purpose sports stadium providing the perfect foundation for the team to develop into a famous Chinese football team.
