Chinese Man Digs Football Pitches by Hand | VICE Modern Football Heroes


My name is Xia Yonghong. I build football pitches. I wanted to play football. But there was no football pitch in China for me to play on. I have been waking up at 5 every day and working three hours until 8 for the past 30 years. As far as I know, there is no one else crazy enough to actually build a football pitch on his own. So far, I’ve built 8 football fields in Wuhan city. They are all free to the public. I’m currently working on my ninth field. I want everybody to love this sport- and more people to play it I welcome everyone around the world to come play football on the pitches I build.
