The match between FC Seoul and Ulsan Hyundai continues to be a hit in the early K-League. It’s not just because of director Jurgen Klinsmann’s intuition effect. 

On the 10th, at 2:00 pm at the Seoul World Cup Stadium, the 3rd round match of the ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ between Seoul and Ulsan will be held. 

A lot of attention is focused on the match between the two teams. 10,000 copies were sold within 4 hours of starting ticket reservations, and as of noon on the 9th, the number exceeded 15,000. It was also found that more than 1,800 tickets were sold. 

There is also an expectation that it will be the largest audience this season. The highest number of spectators this season was 28,039, which was recorded in the opening round 1 of Ulsan and Jeonbuk’s ‘Hyundai Derby’. There are still two days left in the game, and it is expected that this can be surpassed if the on-site sales are added. 안전놀이터

Coach Paulo Bento followed by coach Klinsman, who took the lead of the national team, also visits this stadium. The Korea Football Association said on the 7th that coach Klinsman will watch the game. Coach Klinsman said at his inauguration press conference on the 9th, “There is no particular reason,” but he is expected to watch the national team players playing in Seoul and Ulsan.

Klinsman’s visit has increased interest, but it cannot be said that the reservation rate is high because of that. Even if coach Klinsman visits the stadium, he watches the game from a designated seat. It’s unlikely fans will get to see Klinsman in person. 

It can be seen that the popularity of the K-League continues. This season, the K-League is attracting a large number of spectators with Corona-free and World Cup effects. By the second round, an average of 13,572 spectators was counted, which is about 11.3% higher than the average spectator for the same period in 2019.
