Guangzhou FC, club from Chinese Super League. It has been officially announced that in season 2022 they have put in place a whole new policy of spending money. The maximum wage ceiling is 600,000 yuan/year (about 396,448 RM) before tax only.
Today, Guangzhou FC officially announced the termination of the contract with five naturalized players, and issued new salary regulations for the team. The annual salary of the outstanding main team of the first team is only 600,000 yuan before tax, and there are only three people. The main force is only 420,000 yuan (about 277,513 RM), the main force is 300,000 yuan (about 198,224 RM), and the bench is 144,000 yuan (about 95,147 RM). The annual salary of the first team is 8.27 million yuan (about 5.46 million RM). That number used to be just a player’s annual salary.
All the Guangzhou FC (included the women’s football team), the annual salary cost is 14.556 million yuan (about 9.61 million RM). This salary level may be the annual salary of the two players of the Guangzhou FC in the past. If the staff and various other expenses are added, the operating expenses of the Guangzhou team will drop straight line throughout the year. The cost may just be the operating cost of a China B team. Some netizens also said that the Guangzhou FC used to bring the salary of the Chinese Super League to the ceiling, and now they want to bring the salary of the Chinese Super League to the floor.
As for how players with existing contracts will be implemented, there is no relevant news, but through this salary limit, I can probably guess that such salary regulations may be enforced. The Guangzhou team itself is a big international player. At present, there are still many players with good abilities in the team. Such a salary level may cause a group of people to leave. Even if the existing contract continues to be implemented, it is very unlikely that the international player will choose to renew the contract when the contract is about to expire, and the loss of players cannot be avoided.
The Guangzhou team’s salary limit this time is likely to lead other Chinese Super League teams to follow suit. Now the Chinese Super League clubs are largely in arrears of wages, and the Football Association is also promoting another salary cut to reduce the club’s operating pressure. Moreover, now that football clubs around the world are cutting salaries, there is no reason for the Chinese Super League not to cut salaries from a broader perspective.
