Jeju United failed to keep the promise of the ceremony, but rather sublimated into memories with fans.
Jeju defeated Suwon FC 3-0 in the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 round 26 home game held at Jeju World Cup Stadium on the 12th.
With this victory, Jeju (34 points) broke the tie of 10 consecutive league games without a win (4 draws, 6 losses). Also, it beat Daegu FC, which played one less game, and jumped three places to 6th place.
In the 35th minute of the first half, Jonathan Yuri scored the first goal with a sensational header from Lim Chang-woo’s cross. In the extra time of the first half, Jonathan Yuri once again bounced the net with a left-footed mid-range shot. In the 18th minute of the second half, Hayes added a goal to end Jeju’s complete victory.
On this day, every time Jeju scored a goal, the fans’ eyes turned to the players. It was because there was a ceremony promise. Jeju recently released ‘Jeju Forest’, an eco-friendly recycled uniform. He announced that he would wear it in 3 consecutive home matches in August and at the same time hold a ceremony in ‘Jeju Forest’.
The ‘Jeju Forest’ ceremony expresses the trunk of a tree with both arms and the branches of a tree with both hands. A Jeju official explained, “It means the will to practice environmental protection and to protect the beauty of clean Jeju.”
However, it was not easy to see the ‘Jeju Forest’ ceremony. In the game against Gangwon FC on the 6th, an equalizer was scored at the end of the game, and the ceremony was omitted for victory. The FA Cup against Pohang Steelers on the 9th was postponed due to the typhoon.
In the match against Suwon FC, there was no time to celebrate in the long draw. An official from Jeju said, “We scored three goals, but we couldn’t show the ceremony because the concentration of the players was strong for a draw.”
The ceremony that could not be presented came back as a memory. In the process of taking commemorative photos after the game, at the suggestion of manager Ki-il Nam, we held a ‘Jeju Forest’ ceremony with fans. The players and fans put their hands together to make a tree, and the trees gathered to create a forest.메이저사이트
Coach Nam looked back, saying, “I wanted to show the ‘Jeju Forest’ ceremony in the game, but the players’ desire and concentration to quit the draw seemed to be greater.” Still, he said, “You must keep your promise,” and “So, after the game, I suggested that we take a picture of the victory while celebrating with the fans. It was a more meaningful moment because the fans were able to participate as well.”
