From league champions to major European competition champions, European clubs visiting Korea this summer are more likely to bring more trophies and championship patches.
This summer, a list of the most spectacular domestic games of all time is predicted. England’s Manchester City and Spain’s Atletico Madrid will visit Korea for the ‘Coupang Play Series’. ‘Korea Tour 2023’ will have a total of 3 matches, including England’s Wolverhampton Wanderers, Scotland’s Celtic, and Italy’s AS Roma visiting Korea and mixing with Incheon United. In addition, it is unclear whether it will be successful as the Korea Football Association has not yet approved it, but Naples in Italy and Mallorca in Spain are also likely to come to Korea.
Originally, it is a popular team representing a Korean player’s team or each league, but it is noticeable that it is adding more meaning by winning more after the decision to visit Korea. In particular, Man City is virtually certain to beat Arsenal in the English Premier League (EPL) and win the come-from-behind victory. Here, on the 18th, in the second메이저놀이터 leg of the European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) semifinals, they defeated Real Madrid and reached the final. There is a possibility of visiting Korea as a European champion. It is evaluated that Man City’s chances of winning are high compared to their final opponent, Inter Milan.
Manchester City are also in the final of the English FA Cup. The ‘Treble’, which wins the league, FA Cup, and UCL in one season, is highlighted as the highest achievement that a European club can achieve. There is a high possibility that a treble winning club will come to Korea.
In addition to this, on the 19th, AS Roma, which passed the UEFA Europa League semifinals, advances to the final and clashes with Spanish club Sevilla for the championship. Roma and coach Jose Mourinho have a chance to win the European competition for the second year in a row, following last season’s UEFA Europa Conference League victory.
Roma’s Europa League win in particular is known to be a factor that the organizers have high hopes for. According to industry insiders, Roma is a traditional and popular team, and although there are star players such as coach Mourinho and Paulo Dybala, it is difficult to gauge how popular the team will be as there are no Korean Europeans. However, if you visit Korea as the champion of the Europa League, not only does it add meaning, but it is a factor that can gain great popularity because coach Mourinho completely recovers the aspect of the ‘winning contract’ that he lost during Tottenham Hotspur. Winning the Europa League also leads to UCL qualification for the next season. Based on this, it would be icing on the cake if Roma were to supply more flashy star players and accompany them to Korea.
There is Celtic, who have already won two gold medals in Scotland and are waiting for a third final. Although the visit to Korea has not been confirmed, Napoli are the Italian champions. Up to 7 European clubs visiting Korea this summer can bring up to 8 trophies, including 2 European competitions and 2 big leagues.
