The growth and expansion of Chinese soccer league requires, according to the Chinese Football Association, the creation of a new legal entity to run its domestic leagues.
The Chinese government has issued a national reform plan to separate the management of professional leagues from the CFA and develop the game. The aim of this separation would be to allow club shareholders and professionals non-related to CFA to operate the league, so clubs would be powerful enough to make decisions based on their own needs.
