Jeonbuk, Incheon, and now Seoul… ‘K-League Atrocities’ at Saemangeum Jamboree

The 2023 Saemangeum World Scouting Jamboree is headed to the home stadium of K League 1 FC Seoul.

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism announced that the 온라인카지노 K-pop concert, which serves as the closing ceremony for the 2023 Saemangeum Jamboree, will be held at 7 p.m. on Nov. 11 at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.

The concert was originally scheduled to be held at 8 p.m. on June 6 at Saemangeum Outdoor Special Stage, but was postponed due to concerns about safety incidents. It was later announced that it would be held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium in Jeonbuk on the 11th, but the venue was changed again to Seoul World Cup Stadium due to the aftermath of the typhoon moving north.

The Seoul World Cup Stadium, which was touted as a “hybrid turf,” will not be able to avoid grass damage. Seoul World Cup Stadium operates a mixture of natural and artificial turf.

Seoul World Cup Stadium’s turf was put to the test last month when Atletico Madrid (Spain) and Manchester City (England) played a pre-season friendly against each other. It rained heavily just before kickoff and rainwater puddled on the field, but it quickly drained away and the game was completed normally.

K-pop performances are held on grass. In particular, it is inevitable that the grass will be damaged due to structures being installed on the field. In addition, a large number of spectators are expected to watch the performance on the field.

A soccer official said, “If the grass is damaged by the performance, the performance of the K League 1 players who will play at the Seoul World Cup Stadium may be compromised.”

Earlier, Jeonbuk Hyundai and Incheon United had canceled their FA Cup fixtures due to the Jamboree organizers’ hasty administration. Jeonbuk and Incheon were scheduled to play their FA Cup quarterfinal match on the afternoon of the 9th at Jeonju World Cup Stadium.

However, on June 6, the organizers unilaterally announced that a K-pop concert would be held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium, and Jeonbuk would not be able to play the FA Cup at home.

Incheon had also booked accommodation and rented a training center to prepare for the away FA Cup, but were forced to return home with penalties. Fans also canceled their reservations and turned away.

Eventually, the venue for the K-pop concert was changed to the Seoul World Cup Stadium, but the FA Cup quarterfinal between Jeonbuk and Incheon had already been postponed.
