‘Golden Boy’ Lee Kang-in (22) became the first Korean to join Paris Saint-Germain. Korean soccer fans were excited, and there was news that a friendly match would be held in Busan. This is good news for soccer fans in Busan who want to see Lee Kang-in, but fans of her hometown soccer team, Busan I-Park, are bitter.
Coupang Play announced that the matchup between Atletico Madrid and ‘Team K League’ on the 27th and Manchester City and Atletico Madrid on the 30th will be held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium. He then announced that he would have a friendly match against Paris Saint-Germain and Jeonbuk Hyundai on the 3rd of next month.
These are matches that football fans will be thrilled with. Atletico Madrid, a traditional European powerhouse, and Manchester City made a treble last season under Pep Guardiola. Here, you can see Lee Kang-in, who transferred to Paris Saint-Germain, so it is a great soccer feast in midsummer.
It’s good so far, but bitterness remains in the match between Paris Saint-Germain and Jeonbuk Hyundai. It is known that the purpose was to attract the ‘2023 Busan World Expo’, which was the justification for holding the evaluation exhibition and the Dream Concert in Busan in June. However, Jeonbuk Hyundai, not the hometown team Busan I-Park, will play at the Busan Asiad.메이저도메인
Pre-season matches with foreign teams are highly likely to have been a Paris Saint-Germain-Jeonbuk Hyundai match between the organizers and the club, as financial reasons are significant. Busan I-Park is owned by Chung Mong-gyu, head of the Korea Football Association, but it seems to have been excluded because it is in the second division. According to what is known, Busan IPark was contacted by Coupang Play 14 days ago and received a request for cooperation from the city of Busan last week.
It is Busan I-Park that respects the judgment of Busan City, but it has become a lonely situation. The city of Busan excluded the local team under the pretext of attracting the ‘2023 Busan World Expo’. If a series of events are held in the second half, they will have to give up their home ground again during the season.
Busan I-Park moved its home stadium to Gudeok Stadium during the Dream Concert and the Korean national team evaluation match last June. External factors are very troublesome at the time of concentrating on promotion to the 1st Division.
