“U-CAN Goal With Me.”
Our motto encapsulates the spirit of the football player on the field.

Like a mirror to the football field, the qualities of teamwork, striving for goals and pure determination is put on a pedestal by UCAN.
UCAN Sports Pty Ltd was founded in 1988 by brothers Daxin Zhao, the current chairman of the company, and Dayu Zhao, the famous ‘Dwarf Tiger’ in Chinese football.
Due to the influence and training of their father, the two brothers became quickly attached to football from a very young age.
Among them, the elder brother Dayu is well known for his football skills. He proudly wore the Chinese national team jersey and scored the winning goal against Argentina in the 1984 Asia Cup. His younger brother, Daxin, is a talented businessman and has since built UCAN from a local football brand in Guangdong to a world-renowned sports brand.
Partnered with Team China in Japan and South Korea at the 2002 World Cup. Signatures of the full team on the jersey, including that of the famous Bora Milutinović, were sublimated and redistributed to capture and share this monumental event.
This simultaneously marked one of the first times sublimation technology was used in football apparel. One of the happiest moments in Chinese football history was shared with fans worldwide.
UCAN also became an official partner of China’s legendary National Women’s Volleyball Team, and importantly, the Qinghai Lake International Cycling Race. This propelled UCAN’s exploration and expansion in the fields of other sports.View Gallery2002
