2007 Chinese Super League

The 2007 Chinese Super League (CSL 2007) season, the fourth since its establishment, started on March 3, 2007 and ended on November 14, 2007. This season is sponsored by Kingway brewery.

Prior to the start of the season, the lowest placed team of the previous season, Chongqing Lifan was relegated to the Chinese Football Association Jia League while Henan Jianye and Zhejiang Lvcheng was promoted.

The champions, as well as the runner-up, of the league, will qualify for the AFC Champions League 2008 due to the cancellation of the FA Cup for the season.

Changchun Yatai clinched the league title at the last game of the season, while Xiamen Lanshi was relegated with two games to spare. Coincidentally, both of these teams were promoted in the previous season.
