Welcome to The Beijing Barbarians recruitment page. If you are looking for information on how to become part of a fun, yet competitive football club/community in Beijing then this is for you!
The first step to joining the Barbarians is to attend one of our weekly training sessions. The club trains every Wednesday night from 9:00-10:30pm at Chaoyang Park (9 a-side pitch) during the active season.
We have two 11-a-side teams and two 5-a-side teams here at the Barbarians. The 11's teams play on Saturday or Sunday afternoons, with kickoff times usually between noon-4:00pm. The most common match venues are Si De Park and Dulwich College (Legends Garden Campus). Our 11-a-side A and B teams play in the IFFC's Premier League and First Division respectively.
The 5-a-side teams play on weekday nights, usually on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays. Both teams are the ClubFootball's 5-a-side league, which hosts dozens of teams in multiple divisions and starts a new season every couple of months. Matches are played on the 5-a-side pitches within Chaoyang Park (Entrance at East Gate 7).
There is a 250rmb fee to register for the Barbarians Club; this includes registration for both ClubFootball and IFFC leagues, socks and shorts. Match fees are generally around 90 RMB per week for 11-a-side (50 RMB for students) and 50 RMB per week for 5-a-side.
