“I felt that ‘we can be strong too’.”
One of the things that KEPCO emphasized this season for men’s professional volleyball was ‘fan service’. In the meantime, I had an image of being somewhat closed, but I put the will to communicate actively this season.
A press conference was held ahead of the season, and fans joined in as it was broadcast live on YouTube. Head coach Kwon Young-min and the team as well as KEPCO’s general manager Park Chang-yong and vice-captain Kim Chul-soo attended and listened to many opinions.
At this event, veteran Shin Young-seok said, “I hope there will be more events to communicate with fans. When I come to the gym, I feel like it’s like my home, and I hope there are changes in the gym so that it’s better to come to play volleyball with my family. I like it while calling it ‘Marie Hanwha’, and I hope that it has a charm that fans like.”
Actively using YouTube and SNS, he also showed behind-the-scenes stories on and off the court. The players also released interesting videos everywhere without fear of being broken.
KEPCO, which longs for ‘fans’, has wings. Lim Seong-jin, who joined in the 1st round of the 2021-2022 season draft, has a strong fan base while combining good looks and skills.
Little by little, the volleyball court of KEPCO started to be kicked by fans.
KEPCO, which shouted ‘fan’, was definitely rewarded in spring volleyball. The semi-playoff against Woori Card on the 22nd. Woori Card is the number one team in the men’s spectator division of the V-League.
Before the game, the cheering seats at Jangchung Gymnasium were filled with white lights cheering for Woori Card. A moment that can be a little intimidating for away players. However, one side was full of red lights cheering for KEPCO.
KEPCO fans wore red clothes symbolizing KEPCO and cheered loudly throughout the game. KEPCO eventually beat Woori Card 3-1 with the same heat as the home court and succeeded in advancing to the playoffs.토토사이트
After the game, KEPCO coach Kwon Young-min said, “I came to the expedition and I am grateful if the cheering squad’s voice is loud. The only way to reciprocate is to win. I will manage my players’ stamina and condition, so I will play well even if I go to Cheonan.”
Seo Jae-deok also expressed his gratitude for the fans’ support. Seo Jae-deok said, “At the start, our card entered with a white light. Looking back, we got goosebumps because they cheered us on with a red light. I felt that we could be strong too. Thanks to that, we cheered up and played a good game. I don’t think so,” he said.
Lim Seong-jin also said, “Thank you. Even though it was Seoul, you came wearing a red T-shirt, so the heat was hot so it didn’t feel like an expedition. I wanted to repay you with a winning game. I was very grateful for your support. Thank you.”
