37,008 cloud spectators gathered through the heavy rain in the K-League 1 FC Seoul and Jeonbuk Hyundai’s ‘legendary match’ held on Children’s Day on May 5th.
Seoul drew 1-1 in the home game against Jeonbuk in the 11th round of the Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 5th.
On this day, heavy rain of up to 150 mm fell in the central region, including Seoul. The Seoul World Cup Stadium, where the match was held, was also raining so heavily that it was impossible to see in the second half.
However, the enthusiasm of the fans to watch soccer on Children’s Day was hot enough to break through the heavy rain.
On that day, 37,008 cloud spectators gathered at the Seoul World Cup Stadium and enjoyed the heated K-League match to the end even in the rain.
This is the second largest crowd this season after 45,007 from the Seoul-Daegu match held at the same venue on April 8th.안전놀이터
In addition, based on the K-League games held on Children’s Day, it is the 8th highest record ever, and it is the largest number of spectators ever among Children’s Day games since 2018, when the K-League started counting Euro spectators.
With many fans watching, the content of the match was also rich. Jeonbuk Gustavo set a tie record for the shortest time in K-League history by scoring a goal 11 seconds after kick-off.
Backed by the support of the home fans, Seoul also drew 1-1 with Park Dong-jin’s header equalizing in the second half. The two teams exchanged a fierce slugfest until the end of the game, catching the attention of the fans who visited the stadium.
