Cheonan City-Chungbuk Cheongju go! K-League 2 ‘new team warning’
In the 2023 season, a ‘new team warning’ was issued. Cheonan City FC and Chungbuk Cheongju FC, which were newly added this year, as well as Gimpo FC, which caused a sensation last year, are already looking forward to what variables will be in the promotion competition.메이저사이트
Starting this year, K-League 2 will be operated as a 13-team system with the addition of Cheonan and Cheongju. Two teams that were in the K3 League until last year will turn pro this year and participate in the K League 2. Cheonan entrusted the baton to head coach Park Nam-yeol, who had no professional experience, and Cheongju appointed coach Choi Yoon-gyeom, who had a lot of experience in the K-League, as the head coach.
Although there is a high possibility of hovering in the lower ranks in terms of objective power, it is full of determination to create a sensation for the new team. At the ‘Hana 1 Q K League 2 2023 Opening Media Day’ held at The-K Hotel in Yangjae-dong, Seoul on the 21st, the two teams took their first steps on the professional stage with clear goals.
Cheonan was full of ambition. He shouted that he would aim for more than a semi-playoff (junior PO) where he could look up to promotion in his first year as a pro. Coach Park said, “I entered the K-League 2 with passion. I will show you good football,” he said. “I am looking at Kimcheon Sangmu, FC Anyang, Gyeongnam FC, Seoul E-Land, and Bucheon FC 1995 as the top 5, and we will also try to advance to PO under them.”
Cheongju did not set a grandiose goal, but it showed that it was not taken lightly. Coach Choi said, “As a new team, we will show passion and spirit. It will be a team that averages 5,000 spectators,” and captain Ryu Won-woo raised his voice, saying, “It will not be easy to take even one point against our team.”
Cheonan and Cheongju have seniors to imitate. Gimpo, who debuted in K-League 2 in the 2022 season and played the role of a ‘chili powder corps’, won 10 wins by overpowering Gwangju FC and Gyeongnam. It is our ambition to continue that storm this year as well. On this day, when he was not even mentioned as a candidate for the 5th round, Gimpo coach Go Jeong-woon said, “It is unfortunate that they did not select us. Gimcheon, Gyeongnam, Bucheon, Anyang, Jeonnam Dragons, and Busan I’Park will challenge for promotion, but we will be scolded a lot.”
