In early June, the domestic confrontation between Min-jae Kim’s team Napoli and Lee Kang-in’s team Mallorca became unclear.
An official from the Korea Football Association said on the 19th, “As a result of a meeting the day before with the consortium (organizer) promoting the match between Naples and Mallorca in Korea, we informed them that the match on the 10th of next month is impossible.”
The organizers requested the approval of the Football Association, saying, “We will hold a friendly match between Napoli and Mallorca on the 8th (Seoul World Cup Stadium) and the 10th (Goyang Sports Complex) next month.”
However, it did not submit the Korea Professional Football Federation consent required for final approval by the Football Association. The federation did not agree on the schedule for the second match between Naples and Mallorca, saying that three K-League 1 matches are scheduled on the 10th of next month.
An official from the federation said, “We agreed on the match on the 8th of next month (without a K League 1 game),” and said, “If the second leg is also held on a day when there is no K League 1 game, we can agree.”
Accordingly, the association notified the organizers that the match on the 10th of next month would be excluded from the screening. It is known that they asked to confirm whether they would be willing to play the game on the 8th of next month.먹튀검증
Even if the host decides to proceed with only one game, it does not mean that the two teams will face off immediately. The association requested a ‘deposit’ worth billions of won to confirm that it could afford the cost of the event operation plan submitted by the organizers.
It is known that if an answer is received regarding the financial situation, it will be decided whether or not to hold the game through internal discussions early next week.
