Noise is being made about the canceled friendly match between Napoli (Italy), where Kim Min-jae plays, and Mallorca (Spain), where Lee Kang-in plays.
According to the Korea Football Association (KFA), on the 26th, the association received a lawsuit in the name of the consortium organizers StadiumX (STX) and Untouchable Sports Group (USG), which promoted the two teams’ visit to Korea, stating that the friendly match between the two teams was unfairly canceled and that they should be compensated for the damage caused.
Accordingly, the KFA is preparing for the eventuality of receiving a notice from the court.
On June 25, the KFA finally informed the consortium that was organizing the friendly match between the two teams that it would not be allowed to hold the match. The two matches were scheduled to take place on June 8 at Seoul World Cup Stadium and June 10 at Goyang Sports Complex.
The matches were expected to be highly anticipated by fans as they would be the last time Kim Min-jae and Lee Kang-in would play in their respective clubs’ jerseys. It was also interesting to note that Kim Min-jae and Lee Kang-in were going head-to-head.
However, in the case of June 10, the consent of the Korean Professional Football Association was not obtained due to the fact that six K League games (three K League 1 and three K League 2) were held on the same day. The KFA approves invitational matches for foreign teams, but the federation’s consent is required. 메이저사이트
On June 8, the KFA asked the consortium if they wanted to hold any of the matches. At the same time, the KFA also wanted to check the financial status of the consortium to see if they could afford to host a foreign team to avoid an event like Cristiano Ronaldo’s no-show.
