Postponed due to forest fires in Gangwon-Chungbuk Cheongju and Gangneung… Schedule to be confirmed later
The FA Cup match between Gangwon FC and Chungbuk Cheongju was postponed due to a forest fire in Gangneung.
The Korea Football Association announced on the 11th that the 2023 Hana One Q FA Cup 3rd round match, which was scheduled to be held at Gangneung Sports Complex on the 12th, was postponed due to a large forest fire in Gangneung.
The meeting between Gangwon and Chungbuk Cheongju was called ‘Choi Yoon-gyeom Derby’. It was because coach Choi, who currently holds the baton in Cheongju, Chungcheongbuk-do, served as the commanding tower in Gangwon. However, it was delayed due to forest fires. The association added that the postponed schedule will be confirmed at a later date.토스카지노

The fire was extinguished at 4:30 pm, about 8 hours later. Gangwon-do plans to propose the declaration of a special disaster area in the affected area.
