“The training ground is fine.”

Jeongjo-guk, interim coach of the Korean national soccer team, was amazed to see the condition of the grass when he came to the training site an hour earlier than the players. It felt as if the carpet was laid.

The ground grass conditions at the Seoul World Cup Stadium, where the aftermath of last year’s Saemangeum World Scout Jamboree concert still remained, or Mokdong Stadium and Goyang Stadium, which were uneven because they were unable to purchase a skylight for winter lawn management.

Although the temperature has risen, there has been an excuse that it cannot be helped in the chilly weather. However, the ground of the Seoul World Cup Stadium, which was praised for being a hybrid lawn, was far from flattening and its cheeks were plump.

As originally planned, the KFA, which ended its term as Paju National Football Center (NFC) last year, planned to open the Korea Football Center near the Gyeongbu Expressway stop in Cheonan, South Chungcheong Province, in June this year. However, the move-in period was once postponed to December before being pushed further to next year. It is also unclear when the center will be opened for sure.

Naturally, there was a setback in training for the A team and others. Paju NFC was the best grass in Korea, but it was like an away team in terms of environment due to the wandering nature.

For this reason, he did not stay in Korea anymore and ended the third leg of the second Asian qualifying round for the 2026 North-Central America World Cup with Thailand 1-1 draw on the 22nd and got on the plane to Bangkok immediately on the 23rd.

Bangkok was preferable in terms of training conditions, despite the fact that the high temperature and humidity are a problem. In general, recruiting for a training site is done by recruiting a few places and choosing a better place for the other country’s soccer association where the home game is played. Alternatively, a representative for recruiting facilities staying in the host country of the game checks and reports in advance to make a decision.

Even when the Korea Football Association was beaten inside and outside, the national team’s support team moved quickly and was able to recruit Windmill Football Club, directly operated by a golf resort company near Suvarnabhumi International Airport. 퀸알바

The training ground is equipped with three natural grass fields. It can accommodate 11 people, seven to nine people, and five to seven people. Among the K-League teams that flocked to Bangkok this year, Suwon Samsung and Seoul E-Land each used the facilities. After getting off the bus, players can go into the waiting room and change into soccer shoes, change their clothes quickly and step on the lawn.
