“Can’t you feel the heat after a long time?”
Professional football FC Seoul is expecting ‘40,000 spectators’ ahead of its home game against Daegu FC at 4:30 pm on the 8th. This is because, in addition to the 20,000 spectators who were looking for the game earlier, even Lim Young-woong, a ‘special guest’, is looking for the stadium.
More than 20,000 spectators attended both matches held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium this season. 22,201 people filled the seats against Incheon United in the opening game and 20,549 people in the Ulsan Hyundai game in the third round.
In addition to this, the ‘Lim Young-woong effect’, which heated up early, is aimed at 40,000 spectators in this Daegu match. It is the first time in seven years since 2016 that more than 40,000 spectators gather at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.
Lim Young-woong plans to greet fans through a poetry celebration before the game on this day. When the reservation started after this news was announced, not only Seoul-Daegu fans but also many Lim Young-woong fans added tickets for the Seoul-Daegu match, selling like hot cakes. 20,000 copies were sold within 10 minutes of the start of reservations, and 35,000 copies were sold three days before the game. It is so hot that a club official sticks out his tongue saying, “This is the first time this has happened.”
It is said that the time celebration event was held at the suggestion of Young-woong Lim, not at the request of the club. An official from the club said, “Youngwoong Lim made the proposal first because he likes soccer so much, and he seems to have chosen us because he is friendly with Hwang Eui-jo and Ki Sung-yong.”
While many spectators are expected to come, the club is preparing for the home game first. This is because they have experience in running games that attract 30,000 to 40,000 spectators. Instead, the plan is to keep an eye on the situation at the site and prepare well so that many spectators do not feel uncomfortable.
What is different from usual is the number of phone calls to the club. This is because there are not a few fans who are visiting the soccer field for the first time, and most of Lim Young-woong’s fans are older. However, the common explanation of the officials is that all fans politely ask questions. It means that you can feel the ‘dignity’ of Lim Young-woong’s fandom. 메이저놀이터
An official said, “We receive a lot of inquiries, and when we respond, they ask questions kindly and with good manners. They are also worried that the singer might be harmed,” he said. I felt that the fandom itself was definitely classy and decent.”
The signature color of Lim Young-woong’s fan club is sky blue, which coincidentally is also the uniform color of Daegu’s away team that day. There is also a possibility that the fans will slip away like the ebb tide after Lim Young-woong’s sissy. However, it is known that these concerns have already been well-announced to fans by Lim Young-woong. Club officials also plan to welcome them as football fans cheering for Seoul, not Lim Young-woong’s fans.
Of course, a large number of spectators have a positive effect on the performance of the players. If there are Lim Young-woong fans who are watching the K-League for the first time on this day, it is also the club’s wish that they will become Seoul fans in the future after watching the game. Of course, showing good performance is an important condition.
An official from the club said, “From the players’ point of view, if the cheering is loud or there are a lot of spectators, they say that adrenaline comes out and they get a lot of energy. We just need to play well now.” I wonder if I can feel that heat once again after a long time.”
