The scale and atmosphere of the scene was really unexpected and very hot. Traveling all over the world, reporting on many different competitions including the World Cup and the Olympic Games, it is really quite different from the Rongjiang “Village Super League” league. The competition here is very down-to-earth, and the competition here is closely connected with culture. Villagers singing and dancing, from different ethnic groups, from different villages, also brought native products, including a lot of food, so the scene became a scene. Culture collection. I think that using the “village super” as a stage actually stimulates the economy of the entire county, which is a good move and a wonderful move.
[Explanation]It is understood that Rongjiang football has a history of more than 80 years. From the contact with football in 1940 to the start of football games in 1999, the people of Rongjiang have been enjoying more and more love for football, and their participation is getting higher and higher.

What I am more concerned about now is the identities of these players. For example, I just introduced that there used to be a butcher shop, and later it was converted into a brick factory. Such football fans, I believe such people are indispensable. In the game, there are also Many are, for example, carpenters, and some are bricklayers. In fact, let me tell you that football is not that deep. Even if it is a professional league, it must be rooted in our grassroots soil, and our soil is just down-to-earth. It comes from different ethnic groups and different villages. This kind of football atmosphere paves the way for our future.
