Zhongxin. com, March 12 (Zhongxin Finance Wu Jiaju) "Practically speaking, for a long time, the development of China’s’ three big balls’, especially the men’s events, has not been satisfactory, and the level of men’s football has been declining all the way, and there have even been many chaos in the football industry."
On March 12th, Gao Zhidan, director of the State Sports General Administration, responded to questions about revitalizing the "three big balls" at the third "ministerial channel" of the National People’s Congress in 2023. He said that corruption and fake gambling in football and other fields will be resolutely cracked down and severely punished. To revitalize the "three big balls" and make a good football turnaround, we must strengthen the foundation and plant a strong talent base.

The "three balls" contain patriotic feelings.
Gao Zhidan said that the "three big balls" collective ball games of football, basketball and volleyball have a large population and great social influence, and are deeply loved by the broad masses of people, especially teenagers. The results of the "three big balls" competition are not only the outcome of a game, but also the spirit of collectivism and patriotism.
He introduced that in history, China’s "three big balls", especially women’s events, have achieved good results in the world.
China women’s football team has won the runner-up in the Olympic Games and the World Cup, and is known as the "sonorous rose".
China women’s basketball team won medals in the Olympic Games and world championships in 1980s and 1990s, and won the second place in the World Cup last year, showing a good momentum of continuous progress and development.
China Women’s Volleyball Team, which has been tempered through hard training, has struggled from generation to generation, winning the world championship for ten times in three world competitions and winning honor for the motherland. Their women’s volleyball spirit of "Motherland first, unity and cooperation, tenacious struggle and never give up" has inspired generations of China people to make unremitting efforts to realize the Chinese dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
Severely punish corruption and fake gambling in football and other fields.
"But realistically speaking, for a long time, the development of China’s’ three big balls’, especially men’s events, has not been satisfactory, and the level of men’s football has been declining all the way, and there have even been many chaos in the football industry."
Gao Zhidan pointed out that it is a sign of a sports power to achieve the "three big goals", and it is also a short board that we must make up to speed up the construction of a sports power.
"Recently, in view of the serious problems in the field of football, we have been deeply rethinking, studying ways and means to solve them, and preparing to systematically treat them from the aspects of ideological education, work style construction, deepening reform, and doing a good job in current work, so as to re-take the spirit of the Long March and do a good job in the work of the’ three goals’."
Gao Zhidan stressed that we should use strong medicine to eliminate the scab and punish the chaos, focus on the outstanding problems in the current "three big balls" work, such as lack of spirit, lack of righteousness, and weak style of work, and persevere in changing the style of work, being strong in responsibility, and grasping implementation.
"Resolutely crack down on and severely punish corruption and fake gambling in football and other fields, be disciplined, be strict in discipline, improve the system, strengthen rules, and comprehensively repair and reconstruct the good ecology of the healthy and sustainable development of the’ three big balls’."
Let more excellent reserve seedlings be cultivated and transported.
Gao Zhidan said that at present, the reform of football and basketball has entered the deep water area, and the task of deepening the reform and achieving a breakthrough is arduous and arduous. We should unswervingly take the road of reform, innovation and development, further emancipate our minds, be upright and innovative, and start with the construction of management system, talent system, training system, competition system and guarantee system, and constantly improve the development path of "three big balls" with China characteristics.
We should face up to the problems, strengthen our confidence, face up to difficulties, accurately understand and implement the "Overall Plan for Football Reform and Development in China" and other policies and measures, promote the modernization of the "three balls" governance system and governance capacity, and promote the standardized development of the league governance system. Firmly, orderly and consistently take the road of "three big balls" development and reform in China.
He pointed out that to revitalize the "three big balls" and make a good football turnaround, it is necessary to strengthen the foundation and strengthen the talent base.
We should settle down, start with dolls, give full play to the advantages of the national system, make good use of the vitality of the market mechanism, promote the healthy development of campus football, promote the large-scale growth of young football talents, and lay a solid foundation for reserve talents.
We should start from the grass roots, actively support the development of youth football clubs, give more support and guarantee to social football in terms of policies, funds and talents, and promote the benign interaction between social football and professional football.
We should start from the foundation, constantly improve the football competition system and professional league system, smooth the growth channel of outstanding young players from campus football, social football to professional football, and let more outstanding young players be cultivated and transported.
In the process of doing a good job of reserve talents, we should resolutely abandon the mentality of quick success and instant benefit, and build a path and channel for the cultivation and growth of reserve talents step by step, so as to revitalize China football for a long time. (End)
