Changchun Yatai was found in 1996 by Jilin Yatai Group. The club was promoted to the top tier for the first time in 2006, and won their first ever CSL title a year later in 2007. Since then Changchun had relaced Dalian Shide and Liaoning Whowin’s position as the strongest club in Northeast China.

The success of Changchun is based on stable and coordinated development. In the early years of the club, Changchun established two training centers in Changchun City and Hainan Province. Their facilities are among the best of CSL clubs.
