Chinese Super League action.
Shenhua v Dalian is always worth a visit, and this year it looks as if the two teams will once again be challenging for the title.
Pity this is on a Sunday night and not a Saturday night but never mind.
HOW TO GET TO THE STADIUM:
Take line 2 or line 4 metro to Century Avenue Station. Careful, it's easy to get confused and get off at Century Park instead if are you are coming on line 2. Leave Century Avenue station by exit 6 and when you get to street level turn left and follow the footpath until you reach a cross roads. Take a left onto Weifang Lu and the Stadium is about 5 minutes down the road.
HOW TO GET TICKETS:
Usually there are plenty available from scalpers on the streets - only the biggest games, against Beijing, Dalian or Shandong may sell out, and even then there's usually tickets still available. You'll be approached several times on the way to the ground, so if you can't get one for 30rmb or less from the first guys you meet, walk away and try your luck with the next sellers. If you are late and the game has already kicked off, you can get them much cheaper, below 20rmb in some cases. The nosiest sections of the ground are from gates 10-14.
