Both Jeonbuk and Incheon are victims, ‘soccer fans’ hearts hurt by the Jamboree controversy

Everyone has become a victim. Regardless of whether the match schedule changed or the venue changed, it became a situation where no one could laugh.

At 2:00 pm on the 6th, Jeonbuk Hyundai received embarrassing news ahead of the 25th round home game of ‘Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023’ against Incheon United. The main event of the 2023 Saemangeum World Scout Jamboree, the K-pop concert, was to be held at the Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 11th. About an hour later, Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Park Bo-kyun held a press conference at the Jamboree Press Center and made the related information official.

Jeonju World Cup Stadium is the home stadium of Jeonbuk Hyundai in the K-League. You pay the rent for the stadium in Jeonju and use it. Jeonbuk had 3 home matches ahead, including a league match against Incheon on the 6th, a Korea Football Association (FA) Cup semi-final match against Incheon on the 9th, and a league match against Suwon Samsung on the 12th. However, due to the K-pop concert, the venue or schedule had to be changed. An official from the Jeonbuk club said, “There has been talk since the afternoon of the 5th. The final decision was made at 2pm on the 6th. We will not be able to play home games due to the K-pop concert. do,” he explained.

The loss to the club is enormous. Schedule changes may affect team performance. When the venue changes, you have to put down the unilateral support of the home fans. In addition to giving up admission revenue, they have to return the amount for the cancellation of home games to season ticket fans. The same goes for away team Incheon. Incheon set up a base camp in Jeonju for the second match. However, this incident changed my plan. The team changed their schedule and returned to Incheon on the 7th. The accommodation booked for the stay was also canceled after paying a penalty.

Dan Petrescu, coach of Jeonbuk, said, “This is something I have never experienced since I was born. . The blow is multiplied,” he said. But both teams have to put up with it all. Rather, it seems to be careful not to spoil the atmosphere at a national event.스포츠토토

It is the football fans who suffered the most. They are lamenting the bitter reality through online and offline. There were also fans who took a vacation and were about to watch it. Jeonbuk fans hung banners of protest such as ‘Ruin the Jamboree and ruin Jeonbuk too!’ and ‘Football kicked out by the dead Jamboree’. The biggest scar is the reality that everything goes back without considering the football fans.

The situation got more complicated. When Typhoon ‘Kanun’ was expected to move north to the Korean Peninsula, the Jamboree members decided to leave the territory. It is known that plans to move K-pop concerts to Seoul Sangam World Cup Stadium are also being reviewed. An official from the Korea Football Association explained, “On the morning of the 6th, we sent an official letter to Jeonbuk and Incheon regarding the postponement of the match. No matter how the situation is sorted out, the bitter reality that everyone has become a victim cannot be avoided.
