The 10th edition of China's National Games for Disabled Persons is scheduled to begin in August in Tianjin and a hearing-impaired female football team from Zhanjiang is preparing for the competition.

During the 2019 National Games for Disabled Persons, the Zhanjiang team will team up with players from Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region to form the Guangxi team for the games.

The football team was founded in 2013 and has taken part in a number of events in China and around the world. In 2017, the Chinese national hearing-impaired football team was established by the Zhanjiang players and it went on to participate in the 23rd Deaflympics in Turkey.
