The 2024 Chinese Super League season is on the horizon, with teams gearing up for what promises to be an exciting campaign. Shanghai Port, the defending champions, will be looking to secure back-to-back titles with influential midfielder Oscar potentially in his final season in China.

Shandong Taishan, runners-up in both the CSL and Chinese FA Cup last year, will aim to go one step further and challenge for the title once again. Despite the departure of Marouane Fellaini, the team’s core remains strong, making them one of the favorites for the upcoming season.

Zhejiang FC, led by goal-scoring duo Nyasha Mushekwi and Leonardo, will look to build on their impressive third-place finish in 2023. However, uncertainty surrounds the future of their key players, which could impact their performance in the new season.

Chengdu Rongcheng, coming off a fourth-place finish last year, will seek to continue their upward trajectory and potentially challenge for silverware in 2024. With a solid foundation in place, the team under the guidance of Seo Jung-won aims to make a push for the title.

Shanghai Shenhua, boasting a talented squad and fresh off a successful 2023 season, will be under the guidance of new coach Leonid Slutsky as they aim to maintain their momentum. Their performance under the new leadership will be closely watched by fans and pundits alike.

Tianjin Jinmen Tiger, showing signs of stability and promise in recent seasons, will aim to break out of the mid-table comfort and make a push towards the top of the standings. With key additions to their squad and a familiar face in manager Yu Genwei, the team looks to build on their past performances.
