‘Empty cheering seats’ K League Incheon… Willing to change with ‘healthy cheering’ racks

It was a different atmosphere at Incheon Football Stadium, the home of professional soccer’s K League 1 side Incheon United, after the S-seats were closed for five home matches. Incheon United played to a dramatic draw against Gwangju FC, with fans cheering from their seats.

Incheon drew 1-1 at home against Gwangju FC in the 14th round of the Hana Bank K League 1 2024 at the Incheon Football Stadium at 7 p.m. on May 25 with S-seat closed.

Incheon was severely punished by the KFA with a fine of 20 million won and the closure of the S section for five home matches following a water bottle throwing incident in the 11th round against FC Seoul.

The club also decided to ban those who threw the water bottles from home matches indefinitely, with the possibility of lifting the ban upon completion of volunteer service, close the stands for five league matches and one match of the 2024 Hana Bank Korea Cup, and ban collective cheering during the period.

At the Incheon Football Stadium, the fans of the away team, Gwangju, were more organized than the home team, Incheon.

This is because the seats for the ‘Blue and Black’ (Incheon Supporters) were closed for disciplinary reasons.

The empty seats were decorated with a sign that read, “We will create a healthy cheering culture.

Scattered throughout the 토토 stadium, Incheon fans showed their support for the players by singing their own chants and clapping.

To prevent a repeat of the incident, Incheon plans to tighten the rules for bringing in items into all areas of the stadium and implement a pre-reporting system for all home games for the rest of the season.

Facing Gwangju in a different venue than usual, Incheon fell behind early in the second half, but Mugosa converted a penalty kick awarded after video assistant referee (VAR) review in stoppage time to draw 1-1.

The dramatic draw leaves Incheon in sixth place with 18 points (W4 D6 L5).

“The players may not have been able to hear us because they were 바카라사이트 추천 playing, but I saw many people cheering for us with their hearts,” said Incheon coach Cho Sung-hwan, who managed to secure a dramatic draw amidst the closure of the stadium.

“I think the players felt that, too. “I think they felt that, and I think they repaid us by not giving up until the end and scoring the equalizer. We will continue to work on the areas we are disappointed in.”
