Dalian Shide was a former professional Chinese football club that participated in the Chinese Super League. The club was owned by tycoon Xu Ming and the Shide Group while the men's team played at the 30,776 seater Jinzhou Stadium in Dalian, Liaoning province. The club was originally founded in 1982 as Dalian Football Club and predominantly played in the top tier where they won one domestic cup title in 1992. In 1993, the club was reorganised to become a completely professional football team and went on to win the first fully professional 1994 Chinese Jia-A League title2 Achieving a total of eight league titles from both the Jia A and the rebranded CSL Dalian were the most successful club in Chinese football, while in the Asian Football Confederation the club reached the 1997–98 Asian Club Championship and 2000–01 Asian Cup Winners' Cup finals.


The predecessor of Dalian Shide was the Dalian Football Club, which was organised in 1982 to replace the struggling Dalian Dockyards team's place in the Chinese second tier at the beginning of the 1983 league season. Under the local Dalian government's ownership, the club immediately became a major force within the second tier and eventually win promotion to the top level in 1984 when they won the division title.3 For the next several seasons Dalian were predominantly top tier regulars except for one season in 1989 when they were in the second tier, however they quickly won promotion and soon went on to win their first domestic cup in 1992.4 Soon afterwards the Chinese Football Association started to demand full professionalism and sponsorship from all the clubs in China. Dalian went on to be one of the first fully professionalised clubs in China on July 3, 1992. They gained sponsorship in 1993 from the China Hualu group and then the Dalian Wanda Group on March 8, 1994 who changed the club's name to Dalian Wanda FC.

In the inaugural fully professional 1994 league season the club brought in former Chinese national team manager Zhang Honggen to coach the team and under his leadership guide the club to their first ever league title.5 The following season saw Zhang Honggen decide to not stay on as the club's manager and Dalian were unable to retain the league title, however the club eventually brought in former Chinese international player Chi Shangbin into the club as their new manager and with Wang Jianlin and the full support of his company the Dalian Wanda Group taking full ownership of the club, they started to build a football dynasty by winning the 1996 league season undefeated.6 Domestic dominance continued in the 1997 league season while Dalian narrowly just missed out on 1997–98 Asian Club Championship and Chi Shangbin decided to leave to take on a position with the Chinese national team. Despite this Dalian had a well-funded and prolific academy that produced numerous Chinese internationals such as Zhang Enhua, Li Ming and Sun Jihai and with another former Chinese national team manager Xu Genbao Dalian were easily able to replicate their success by winning the 1998 league title.7 In 2000 at the height of their success Wang Jianlin decided to pull-out from football after publicly criticizing Chinese referees for match fixing and he did not return to football until 2011 when his associated Wanda Group sponsored the 2011 Chinese Super League after former Chinese FA Vice-Chairmen Xie Yalong and Nan Yong stood on trial for bribery.8

On January 9, 2000 Wang Jianlin sold Dalian to Xu Ming and the Shide Group for 120 million Yuan and the club's name was changed to Dalian Shide. The new owners brought in Serbian Milorad Kosanović as their new manager and win another league title in the 2000 league season. Kosanović made the men's team by far the most successful team in Chinese football by winning the 2001, 2002 league title, 2001 Chinese FA Cup and just missing out on 2000–01 Asian Cup Winners' Cup during his reign.9 When Milorad Kosanović left to coach the Serbia and Montenegro national under-21 football team the club eventually brought in Vladimir Petrović who guided the team to the recently rebranded 2005 Chinese Super League title as well as 2005 Chinese FA Cup. With the retirement of striker Hao Haidong and Vladimir Petrović leaving to take the Chinese national team management position, the club went through an inconsistent period due to team and coach changes. In 2008, Dalian Shide selected a number of players from its academy to play in a satellite team in the S.League in Singapore, called Dalian Shide Siwu FC.

On 14 February 2010, Zhang Yalin died of lymphoma in Dalian, Liaoning, aged 28, after a two-year-battle with the disease.10

On 30 November 2012, Dalian Shide were acquired by Aerbin Group and merged into Dalian Aerbin F.C..11
