The postponement of the semi-finals of the ‘2023 Hana One Q FA Cup’ all suffered damage to K-League 1 Jeonbuk Hyundai, Incheon United, Jeju United, and Pohang Steelers. Among them, the loss of the away team incheon and pohang is toxic big.토토사이트
The FA Cup semi-finals between Jeonbuk-Incheon and Jeju-Pohang were originally scheduled to be held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium and Jeju World Cup Stadium on the 9th. However, the Jeonbuk-Incheon match was postponed in the aftermath of the K-pop concert, the retirement ceremony of the 2023 Saemangeum World Scout Jamboree. On the 7th, immediately after the Korea Football Association’s announcement of the postponement was delivered to both clubs, the venue for the concert was changed from Jeonju World Cup Stadium to Seoul World Cup Stadium, but it was difficult to return as the Incheon team had already withdrawn from Jeonju.
The match between Jeju and Pohang was postponed as Jeju Island sent an official letter requesting cancellation to the Jeju club an hour before the match was held. It is said that the official letter contains concerns about safety issues following the northward movement of Typhoon Kanun.
Both Incheon and Pohang suffered major aftereffects. Incheon made long-term reservations for Jeonju lodging and training grounds as the 25th round of the ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023’ on the 6th and the FA Cup semi-finals on the 9th were held one after another with Jeonbuk at the Jeonju World Cup Stadium. However, budget losses were unavoidable as they withdrew from the lodgings and training grounds after receiving an official notice of the association’s postponement on the 7th. I am also concerned about managing the physical strength of the players following the change in training schedule.
Pohang also scheduled a stay in Jeju from the 7th to the 11th in consideration of the northbound of the typhoon. However, due to the postponement of the game, only meaningless budgetary expenditures increased. Moreover, the weather in Jeju was calm enough to collapse on both the match day (9th) and the next day (10th).
The damage to the fans is also great. Some Incheon fans spent their annual vacation and booked lodging for the 2nd Jeonju match, but on the 7th, they turned around in vain. Pohang fans also did not find it rewarding to cross the sea to Jeju.
On the other hand, the association said, “When determining future schedules, we decided to give priority to the date derived through the agreement of the clubs.” Currently, it is expected to be held on September 9th.
