Guangdong Winnerway (Hongyuan) Southern Tigers (simplified Chinese: 广东宏远宝玛仕华南虎; traditional Chinese: 廣東宏遠寶瑪仕華南虎; pinyin: Guǎngdōng Hóngyuǎn Bǎomǎ Shìhuá Nánhǔ) or Guangdong Southern Tigers or Guangdong Winnerway (Hongyuan) are a Chinese professional basketball team owned by the Guangdong Winnerway (Hongyuan) Group. The team is one of the best-performing teams in the Chinese Basketball Association, or CBA. The Tigers have won seven CBA titles (champions of the finals), behind only the Bayi Rockets' eight titles. The Tigers are the only team to have qualified for the CBA playoffs in all the seasons since the league launched in 1995. The team plays its home games in Dongguan, Guangdong. Occasionally, for marketing purpose, the team diversifies some of its home games to Zhongshan, Zhuhai, and other cities in the Pearl River Delta.
