This past week was undoubtedly extremely happy for SIPG fans. In addition to the success of their beloved team in the Chinese Super League and the FA Cup, there was even greater good news outside the field. SIPG’s exclusive home stadium, Pudong Stadium, is welcoming phased delivery. At the end of next month, this world-class professional football stadium will host the first large-scale international competition-the 2020 League of Legends World Championship (S10) championship Second place in the final, and next year SIPG fans will cheer for their beloved team in this brand new stadium. Pudong Stadium has created many firsts, and in the future will be destined to become "the most beautiful boy on the beach in Shanghai"!
In terms of watching games, the Pudong Stadium allows spectators to experience the feeling of watching a game in Europe without going abroad. The front row of spectators is 5 to 10 meters away from the side of the court, while the furthest distance from the upper stands is about 50 meters. This is the same effect as the first-class football stadiums in Europe, such as Old Trafford Stadium and Allianz Stadium, ensuring that spectators can watch the football match as close as possible, and can witness the vigorous postures of the players, so that the spectators can be more present. Feel the atmosphere of a football match in its context.
Pudong Stadium is located in the wedge-shaped green space of Zhangjiabang, Jinqiao, Pudong, with a superior geographical location. If you drive off the Jinqiao Road ramp in Central, you can drive for another two to three minutes. In terms of transportation facilities, the parking capacity of the Pudong Football Stadium reserves more than 1,000 parking spaces, and it is an underground parking garage. In addition, the line 14 currently under construction will also have Metro Line 21 in the future. These two major rail transit lines will greatly facilitate fans to watch the games in the future.
Many attentive fans have discovered that Jinqiao Town, Pudong New District, where Pudong Stadium is located, is only a 20-minute drive from Wujiaochang, the core of Yangpu District. Wujiaochang has always been the center of Shanghai's football. In the 1990s, Shanghai's football mecca and Shenhua's home stadium, Jiangwan Stadium, is located here. The strong football background and profound football culture are self-evident. In addition, major universities such as Fudan University, Tongji University, Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, and Shanghai Sport University are spread all over Wujiaochang.
Based on the special time node of the Pudong Stadium’s phased delivery and its convenient transportation location with Wujiaochang in Yangpu District, the club will specifically join the “steam” series in the Shanghai SIPG and Chongqing Football Association Cup matches. Wujiaochang was chosen as the venue for offline watching activities, which means far-reaching.
As a team that has not been established for too long, SIPG has accumulated a considerable number of fans by virtue of its excellent results in the stadium and the construction of fan culture outside the stadium. It is believed that in the future, relying on convenient transportation, SIPG Club will have more connections with Wujiaochang in Yangpu District, so that this once Shanghai football mecca will rejuvenate. The young student group will also become the target of the SIPG’s support and development. In the future, these young fan groups will grow up with SIPG, the same young club.
