Under the terms of the agreement, the two clubs will cooperate in youth training and player exchanges for an undisclosed period of time. The financial terms of the deal have not been made public. 

Ahead of announcing the collaboration Mike Obiku, head coach of Feyenoord Academy, and some of his coaching staff paid a visit to Chongqing Lifan’s training ground to hold a clinic for Lifan’s first team and youth team players.
