The club would use graduates from Genbao Football Base, a football academy also founded by Xu to form their first team as they made their debut in the third tier of China’s football league pyramid in the 2006 league season. Shanghai SIPG would work their way up to the top tier and the highest position they have ever finished is second in the 2015 Chinese Super League season.
