Learn Chinese in China

Tsu-Chu or Cuju


Recommended Posts

Hello to everyone,

I'm Italian and I'm looking for some info about a traditional Chinese sport: Tsu-Chu. There aren't so much information on the Inter about Tsu-Chu. I'm writing about the origins of modern football and, in many books and in many sites, I read that Tsu-Chu is something very similar to football.


Is there anyone that could give me some help? I appreciate any kind of information. :)


Thanks in advance

You've already found this? I don't know much about the sport itself I'm afraid, but it might be useful in your search that the Chinese term, 蹴鞠, can be romanised in different ways. 'Tsu-chu' is Wade-Giles, Hanyu Pinyin (the romanisation system that's usually used today) is 'cuju'.
