Gulangyu People’s Stadium (鼓浪屿人民体育场)

 

Gulangyu People's Stadium in Xiamen

  

The People's Stadium in Gulangyu was built on 14th October, 1956, based on an old tennis court called Fan Zai Qiu Pu (番仔球埔), which was particularly used foreign residents on Gulangyu Island before 1949.

 

Ying Wa Shool (英华书院), which was founded in 1898 by an English missionary on Gulangyu Island, is famous for its football team. Yinghua football team usually played game with foreigners at Gulangyu People's Stadium, and attracted lots of local residents.

 

The Chinese Football Association has formally recognised the People’s Stadium of Gulangyu as the earliest documented official football pitch in modern China.

 

This year, Xiamen International Football Club is inviting 10 teams to compete in "Amoy Cup" Football Game which is set to be kicked off Saturday on 23rd June on the natural grass at Gulangyu People's Stadium.
