The atmosphere is quite different from the past due to the club’s own video production, but each club’s field training is still hidden in a veil. Unlike professional baseball, I couldn’t even dream of broadcasting the evaluation match held at the field training ground.
The K-League also entered the era of ‘international training relay’. Sky Sports, a soccer-focused sports channel, purchased the broadcasting rights so that the defending champion, Ulsan Hyundai, could watch the evaluation match vividly at home.
Ulsan will participate in the ‘2023 The Atlantic Cup’ held in the Algarve, Portugal. The contest is produced by a local broadcaster. A high-ranking official from Sky Sports said, “We organized the live broadcast by receiving locally produced matches. We hope that it will not only quench the thirst of off-season K League fans, but also become a different spectacle.”
In addition to Ulsan, Sky Sports also made inquiries to other teams, including Jeonbuk Hyundai. However, there were no games produced locally, so the organization failed. However, if Ulsan’s first attempt is successful, it seems that the organization can be expanded from next year.
Starting with the match between Ulsan and Brentford B on the 3rd at 4:00 am (Korean time), Sky Sports will broadcast live the match against FC Mittwillan at 10:00 pm on the 6th and the match against Lyngbi BK on the 10th at 9:30 pm. . In particular, against Brentford B, David Beckham’s son Romeo Beckham’s ‘soccer skills’ can also be seen. Romeo played for Inter Miami of the American Major League Soccer (MLS), where his father is the owner, and transferred to Brentford B on loan through the transfer market this winter.
Eight teams will participate in the Atlantic Cup, including Ulsan, Brentford B (England), FC Mittwillan, Lynby BK, FC Copenhagen, Bronby (above Denmark), AIK Stockholm, and Halmstad BK (above Sweden). Ulsan ends the Portuguese training session with the Atlantic Cup. 안전놀이터
