The Korea Football Association (KFA) has refused to allow Kim Min-jae (26) of Napoli (Italy) and Lee Kang-in (22) of Mallorca (Spain) to play a match in South Korea.
The KFA said on the 25th, “We have finally notified the organizers of the two teams’ visit to Korea that we will not allow them to hold the match, stating that they have not met the conditions we have set.”메이저놀이터
The organizers had planned two domestic friendlies between the two teams next month on the 8th (Seoul World Cup Stadium) and 10th (Goyang Sports Complex).
The game on the 10th had already been canceled. That day was scheduled for six K League games and was canceled early due to opposition from the Korea Professional Football Association. The organizers were informed by the KFA on the 19th that the second game would not be held.
The KFA demanded that the organizers reply with their intention to play only eight games, and asked them to prove by that date that they could afford to organize an event as big as the game.
This could be done through deposits worth billions of won or by submitting a special agreement with 10% of the expected revenue of the match (approximately 800 million won), along with financial compensation in case of unforeseen circumstances such as Ronaldo’s no-show in the past.
However, the organizers were unable to fully submit the relevant documents requested by the KFA, and the KFA ultimately denied the remaining one match.
