The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism inflicted ‘another’ wound on the FC Seoul team and fans. In the midst of the season, a concert was held in which the home lawn was unavoidable, and this time, even the name of the club was written incorrectly in the official press release. Looking back at the attitude of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism toward the domestic soccer world, including the K-League, throughout this Jamboree skit, it seems closer to ignorance and indifference than simple mistakes.
In an official press release on the 13th, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism said, “We will actively support the ground restoration of the Seoul World Cup Stadium.” I will try to recover,” he said. The official name of the club, FC Seoul, was incorrectly spelled as Seoul FC. The club name is a very sensitive point for both the club and the fans. In particular, the club and fans are more absurd in that it is an error from the official data of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, not other government departments.
It is more regrettable because it has already hurt the club and fans once, and it is the main body that has left the K-League behind several times in connection with the Jamboree Concert. Previously, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism announced that the Jamboree K-Pop Concert, which was scheduled to be held on the special outdoor stage in Saemangeum on the 6th, will be held at the Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 11th. In the aftermath of this, the FA Cup between Jeonbuk Hyundai and Incheon United was canceled. With Jeonbuk and Incheon already suffering damage, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism announced that it would move the venue again to Seoul World Cup Stadium, not Jeonju, out of concern about Typhoon Kanun. In other words, the so-called Jamboree Concert ‘bomb’ has become Seoul’s responsibility. With the season in full swing and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism trying to use the stadium for which the match schedule was already clearly announced, the K-League clubs were being swayed here and there.
Since Seoul was playing an away game during the concert, there was no home game schedule, but concerns arose that the hybrid turf, which had been working hard for a long time, would be greatly damaged. And the fear quickly became a reality. Controversy grew from the preparation for the concert. The stage was installed near the goal post, and even a protruding stage was installed on the grass. Chairs were set up on the grass. The Seoul Facilities Management Corporation, which put a lot of effort into managing the lawn, and the Seoul club, which has to play home games soon, have no choice but to bear the damage of lawn damage.
The point of the press release of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism was that it would support the restoration of the lawn damaged by the concert. The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism said, “From the planning stage of the concert, we have prepared a budget to restore the stadium to its original state. . It is absurd that a budget that would not have been necessary if it had not been touched in the first place is absurd, and the problem is that no one can guarantee how quickly the grass will be restored to its original state or whether it will be possible to restore it to its original state.안전놀이터
At least, if the degree of damage is small and it recovers normally, it can be fortunate. only if the period is longer. The Seoul club and fans, who are in the middle of the season, have to unilaterally endure unexpected damage. These are problems that the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism would have been unaware of if they had thought even a little about the K-League and the Seoul club in the process of selecting the venue for the concert. That’s why the name ‘Seoul FC’ that appeared in the official data of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism is even more unfortunate. Even after the concert, which was a series of skits, there is no respect from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism for the K-League and the Seoul club.
