The K-League 1 (Part 1)’s ‘Second Round’, which opened in a week, had a very special weekend.
K League 1 champion Ulsan Hyundai and FA Cup winner Jeonbuk Hyundai announced the start of the 2023 season with open training side by side. In recent years, the K-League 1 has been fiercely competing to win, and the two teams, which will play until the official opening match at Ulsan Munsu Stadium on the 25th, have increased their contact with fans with the transition to ‘With Corona’.
Jeonbuk went first. After completing winter training in Spain, the Jeonbuk team conducted a full training session at the Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 18th. Members of the 2022 Qatar World Cup round of 16, including striker Cho Kyu-seong, who temporarily delayed their advance to Europe, veteran defender Kim Jin-soo, and central midfielder Baek Seung-ho, trained amid cheers from fans.
Over 1,000 fans waited to enter from 8:00 a.m. through the chilly weather, and captured the green warriors’ every move with their eyes and mobile phones. The Jeonbuk club put the team bus away from the entrance of the stadium so that as many people as possible can stay in place, take commemorative photos safely, and receive autographs. Captain Hong Jung-ho said, “I was excited and happy to meet the fans for the first time.”
Ulsan, which finished winter training in Portugal, invited fans to Munsu Stadium on the 19th and held an open training with a launching ceremony. About 1,950 fans who succeeded in pre-booking through hot competition waited around the stadium from early morning, and among them, about 100 selected fans came down to the ground touchline to watch the open training.토토사이트
Even though the location is different, everyone’s heart is the same. He sent warm applause and shouts to coach Hong Myung-bo and the players who will challenge for the ‘champion’, regardless of you. The Ulsan club, which received the ‘Fan-Friendly Award’ for 8 consecutive seasons, drew attention by preparing the event as if it were a league home game. We prepared a variety of things to see, eat, and enjoy, making every effort to ensure the success of the opening ceremony for the first home stadium.
In the 2023 season, which marked the 20th anniversary of its founding, Incheon United, which won the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League berth for the first time in the club’s history, also held a grand launch ceremony on the 19th. The Incheon team, which has been quenching in Thailand and Changwon, invited 1,800 fans to the Incheon Global Campus (IGC) auditorium in Songdo for the first time in four years since 2019, and promised a “stopless leap.”
Incheon, which prepared a long-awaited clubhouse in December of last year, pledged to take another leap with a luxurious launch ceremony following active reinforcement of power. It is not a fight to remain, but a steady entry into the top 6 and growth into a team that looks at even more achievements.
