Evidence China Interested In The City Revolution

Evidence China Interested In The City Revolution



Broadcasters, journalists and football fans in China are beginning to take an interest in Manchester City Football Club.

Evidence

On the odd occasion and when I search the internet for live City games I end up stumbling across numerous Chinese TV links. The commentary, in general is in the local language but there are occasions when I hear the regular Sky Sports English commentators, such as Martin Tyler describing the game (especially when the match is being played on a Saturday afternoon UK time).

Only a few years ago the China sports press would have rarely mentioned Manchester City, but that has changed, especially since the club has emerged as one of the most talked about teams in the world.

MCFC is quickly becoming a global brand. Why? Because the club is able to attract the best players on the planet. And of course, the Premier League is the most watched football league in the world.

If anyone reading this article is based in China or you've recently been to that part of the world can you let us know if bars and restaurants show City matches. Plus, and in your opinion has the City revolution really reached China?

Well I arrived in Taiwan a few days before the FA cup final to start my new life here. I found a pub that broadcast the game and there was me and a yank who supports city watching it and that is all. Then the champions league final bought all the 'fans' outta the woodwork in the same pub. There were many indigenous folk wearing barca and united shirts and the pub was packed out. So, as of Taiwan (The Republic of China) city are not very popular yet and the sport shows only broadcast basketball and baseball such is the american influence. But, the pub has many foreign channels as pubs do so I can watch there or online.

Thanks for your insight MCFC_Taiwan. Do you get many Premier League matches in your part of the world. Live or highlights or nothing at all?
