Founded at 1998, Greentwon played in lower divisions for a few years and finally entered the CSL in 2007. In 2009 the club placed 15th place in the CSL, which meant relegation.
However, the CFA decided to relegate Guangzhou Yiyao and Chengdu Blades in the fallout of the match fixing scandal, so Greentwon stayed in the CSL. In 2010 the club received a huge investment and bought in a lot of players in pre season, which had an immediate impact with the club finishing fourth.
The club owner is Song Weiping, Chairman of Greentown China Holdings Limited, one of the largest real estate group in China.
