Club careerEdit

Tao Qianglong would play for the Beijing Guoan youth teams setup and the various age groups for the Chinese national team, which saw Hebei China Fortune interested in his services.[1] Soon after completing his move to Hebei he was promoted to the first team and was handed his debut in a Chinese Super League game by the Head coach Chris Coleman on 2 March 2019 against Shenzhen F.C. where he came on as a substitute for Yin Hongbo in a 3-1 defeat.[2] The manager would show considerable faith in Tao by continuing to play him, which saw Tao repay his faith in him by scoring his first goal for the club on 13 April 2019 in a league game against Chongqing Dangdai Lifan F.C. that ended in a 2-1 loss.[3] By the end of the season Tao had become a regular within the team and fellow top tier club Dalian Professional signed him on 27 February 2020.[4]
