Mei Fang started his football career with Wuhan Guanggu in 2008 when he was promoted to the first team. In August 2008, he had a brief trial with Ligue 2 side RC Strasbourg along with his teammate Wang Yang.In October 2008, Wuhan withdrew from the league for what it claimed was unfair punishment by the Chinese Football Association. Without a club, Mei was invited to a trial with Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg with Wang in November 2008. They continued their trials in Europe and moved to Belgian Pro League side Cercle Brugge in December 2008. Cercle Brugge's board later decided to offer contracts to Mei and Wang; however, Mei returned to Wuhan and joined Hubei Greenery which was newly founded by Wuhan's youth academy and Hubei's youth academy in early 2009.
Mei made his professional debut for Hubei during the 2009 season and quickly integrated himself as a starter as the club won promotion to China League One in the 2009 season. On 28 November 2009, he scored his first league goal but missed a penalty in the penalty shootout as Hubei lost to Hunan Billows in the League Two playoff final.He refused Cercle Brugge's invitation to sign with the club again in January 2010. Mei extended his contract for two years in early 2012 after Hubei Greenery changed its name to Wuhan Zall. He was named as the club's captain on 12 March 2012 and made an impression within the team as Wuhan gained promotion to the top tier in the 2012 season. On 8 March 2013, he made his first tier debut against Jiangsu Sainty. He then scored his first goal that season on 1 June 2013 in a 1-1 draw against Qingdao Jonoon. His captaincy was stripped by the club on 18 August 2013 after a 5-1 loss against Guangzhou R&F and was handed to Cho Won-hee.
After Wuhan relegated back to the second tier, Mei was linked with fellow Chinese Super League side Beijing Guoan;however, on 1 January 2014, Mei signed for Guangzhou Evergrande. He made his debut for the club on 26 February 2014 in a 4-2 win against Melbourne Victory in the first group match of the 2014 AFC Champions League, coming on as a substitute for Alessandro Diamanti in the 88th minute. He scored his first goal for the club on 21 May 2014 in a 1-1 draw against Guizhou Renhe. On 29 July 2017, Mei suffered a cruciate ligament injury in a league match against Guangzhou R&F, which ruled him out for the rest of the 2017 season. On 18 July 2018, he made his return in a 4-0 home win against Guizhou Hengfeng.
