According to "the Opinions of the Municipal People's Government of Dongguan on the Implementation of Accelerating the Development of Sports Industry & Promoting Sports Consumption" recently published on the official website of the city government, Dongguan will give priority to, and place stress on, the development of two major symbolic sports activities, basketball and badminton. The influence of an amateur basketball and badminton leagues will be enhanced by strengthening market-oriented operations.

In order to promote the development of sports industry, Dongguan will focus on promoting the construction of community sports parks, community sports centres, and small football fields, as well as to improve greenway sports facilities. By 2025, at least one community sports park, with venues for basketball, table tennis, badminton, and other fitness activities, will be built in each village or community across the city. A 10-minute fitness circle will be built for the urban community to realize full coverage of the public sports facilities.

The government opinion also requires various public sports facilities to open to the public for free, or at low rates. School sports facilities are expected to lead the way by opening up to the community sooner while maintaining access for students. By 2025, 80% of public school sports venues in Dongguan will be open to the public community.
