As part of a deal to boost football in China, the Chinese U20 team may play in the German fourth tier next season, according to the DFB.

While the plans have been welcomed by commercial directors, fans of German football are less enthused, taking to social media to express their displeasure at what they consider yet another step in the perceived over-commercialization of the sport.

BTW: This is not the first time this has happened in sports. Ahead of the 2012 London Olympics, the British handball team played in the Danish sixth tier to gain experience.

People will always complain about something....... I don't see why this is an issue, especially if the goal is to boost the sport in China.
