The Goal Bureau designated China as a beneficiary of funds for a Goal project on 2 November 2002. In collaboration with the Development Office in Kuala Lumpur, the Chinese FA submitted plans for a project to build association head,which the Goal Bureau approved at its meeting on 15 October 2003. However due to landownership regulations, the CFA proposed to purchase two floors of an existing new building. The purchase was completed on 15 March 2006. The new headquarters will enable better coordination and administration of all football activities across the country. The Middle Kingdom has high hopes for its football association. With the senior national team having qualified for the 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan 2002TM, Chinese fans are now looking for further success from their Olympic team at the Beijing Olympics 2008. The Goal project will help the Chinese FA realise its long-term development plans in all aspects of football. The project will also make it possible for the management of the association to be restructured and the head count to be increased.
