FC Seoul Guardian finally angry…”Government Jamboree cooperation compulsion, will be overlooked”

The ‘Jamboree fiasco’ has reached beyond the entertainment industry and into the world of soccer. The official supporters of FC Seoul, who call Seoul Sangam World Cup Stadium home, have expressed their disappointment with the government’s behavior.

“It would have been nice to have 43,000 people from 158 countries gathered to draw only good memories and dreams, but it seems that this jamboree will not be remembered in that way, so we are sorry in many ways, and when we hear the stories of each participant who prepared to participate in this event, we are also very sorry,” FC Seoul’s official supporters Suho Shin said on Instagram on Tuesday.

“Tomorrow’s closing ceremony has also become another wound for us,” he wrote, adding, “I don’t think there is anything we can do to change now that a lot of ‘voluntary cooperation’ has already been forced on not only us, but also private organizations such as companies and universities beyond public corporations and public organizations through one-sided communication.”

“However, decisions such as returning to the past will definitely need to be reviewed in the future,” Suho Shin emphasized.

“Just as many places have been transformed into your campsites, our stadium has become a performance venue,” he added, “I respectfully request that you enjoy your time here at the Sangam World Cup Stadium, the place where we draw our dreams, but please use it with the utmost care.”

The guardian also attached a statement in English.

The 2023 Saemangeum World Jamboree, which has been plagued by operational issues, will conclude with a closing ceremony at the Sangam World Cup Stadium in Seoul on November 11, followed by a K-Pop Super Live concert.

The closing ceremony and ‘K-Pop Super Live’ concert were originally scheduled to take place on the 6th at the Saemangeum outdoor stage in Haseo-myeon, Bugan-gun, Jeollabuk-do, but due to safety concerns, including the heat wave, the date and venue were changed to Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 11th.

Due to this, the FA Cup quarterfinal match between Jeonbuk and Incheon scheduled for the 9th was canceled. However, due to the impact of Typhoon Kanun, the venue was changed once more to Sangam World Cup Stadium in Seoul.바카라

In preparation for the ‘K-Pop Super Live’ concert and the closing ceremony, stages were set up inside the stadium, including near the goalposts, and seats were arranged on the field. Damage to the grass was inevitable.

In particular, Sangam World Cup Stadium has been criticized by soccer stars such as Son Heung-min and Ki Sung-yong for its poor turf management in the past, and new turf has been laid with a budget of about 1 billion won.

The condition of the turf affects not only the progress of the game but also whether or not the players are injured, so soccer fans were outraged.

The government seems to have recognized the concerns of soccer fans. “There is a possibility of damage to the stadium grass,” said Minister of the Interior and Safety Lee Sang-min at a briefing on the 9th, “but we are working on ways to minimize it.”
