Professional soccer’s K League 1 Jeonbuk Hyundai has been affected by the aftermath of the 2023 Saemangeum World Scouting Jamboree K-pop performance event and closing ceremony.

“The K-pop performance event and closing ceremony of the 2023 Saemangeum World Scouting Jamboree will be held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 11th of this month,” the club announced on social media on the 6th, “Therefore, the two home games scheduled for next week will be rescheduled.”

Immediately, Jeonbuk, which was scheduled to play two games at home next week, had a fire under its feet in the aftermath of the Saemangeum Jamboree.

Jeonbuk was scheduled to play the first leg of its Korea Football Association (FA) Cup quarterfinal against Incheon United at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on Sept. 9. A K League 1 match against Suwon Samsung was also scheduled for Saturday the 12th, also in Jeonju.

However, the sudden scheduling of a K-pop concert and closing ceremony at the Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 11th made it inevitable to change the schedule and venue. 안전놀이터

Due to the stage setup and dismantling of the K-pop concert, the main event of the Saemangeum World Scouting Jamboree, Jeonbuk was unable to play the games on September 9 and 12 at Anbang.

The rescheduling of Jeonbuk’s games at home has not yet been finalized.

“We are discussing whether to change the venue (home and away) or reschedule,” an official from the KFA told News1. Nothing has been decided yet.” A third neutral venue is also a possibility.

Jeonbuk also announced, “We apologize to our fans for the confusion caused by the sudden rescheduling of the game,” and said, “We will provide information as soon as the details of the game are decided.”

Meanwhile, Jeonbuk fans who were looking forward to the home games on the 9th and 12th are reacting strongly.

“A soccer field is a place to play soccer, not a concert venue,” fans wrote on the club’s social media, expressing their anger at the sudden rescheduling.
