Football Reform
   2015-03-17 16:12:47    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Qin Mei

The Chinese government has unveiled a football reform plan in a bid to boost the game in the world’s most populous country.
中国政府公布了足球改革方案,以振兴中国的足球运动。

The key goals(关键目标) of the plan are to ensure that the women's team(女足队) returns to being counted as one of the best in the world(世界一流), and the men's team grows into a formidable force(强队之列).

Another long-term goal(长远目标) is for the country to host the WorldCup(世界杯), an event that China has participated in(参加) only once, i.e., in 2002, when it crashed out in the group stages, losing all three matches and failing to score a single goal.

In order to rectify(改变) the issues of the past, the new plan begins with envisaging a major administrative shake-up(调整).

In terms of(在...方面) funding, the plan calls for the sports lottery(体育彩票) to be used to increase investment in football.

It also proposes building two more training centers at the national level, along with boosting football infrastructure across the country. For example, the plan calls for building 20,000 so-called football-focused elementary and secondary schools by 2020, with that number doubling by 2025.
