“The Jamboree K-pop performance, which was decided to be postponed, will be held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 11th,” Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Park Bo-gyun and Jeonbuk Province Governor Kim Kwan-young said at a press conference held at the Jamboree Press Center on the afternoon of the 6th.

“The Jeonju World Cup Stadium is about 50 minutes away from the Saemangeum Jamboree campsite, and above all, it is a well-managed venue with accumulated safety management experience and know-how,” Minister Park said, explaining the reason for choosing the venue, “We judged it to be the best place to quickly connect the passion of Jeonbuk-do and the people of Jeonbuk-do.”

“The K-pop performance event and closing ceremony of the 2023 Saemangeum World Scout Jamboree will be held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 11th,” Jeonbuk Hyundai announced on its official social networking service (SNS) on the 6th. “Therefore, the schedule for Jeonbuk’s two home games scheduled for next week will be changed.

The first leg of the FA Cup quarterfinals between Jeonbuk and Incheon United was scheduled to take place at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on Wednesday, September 9, followed by the 26th round of the K League 1 against Suwon Samsung on Saturday, September 12. With the rescheduling just three days before the games, Jeonbuk shot themselves in the foot. The rescheduled dates have not yet been finalized. “We apologize to our fans for the confusion caused by the sudden rescheduling of the match,” Jeonbuk said in a statement, adding, “We will provide information as soon as the details of the match are determined.”

For K-pop performances and closing ceremonies, it takes days to set up and tear down the stage. As a result, Jeonbuk will not be able to play its two home games at home. Jeonbuk is reportedly considering a variety of options, including switching venues for home and away games, changing the schedule itself, and hosting a third neutral venue. The sudden decision of the Jamboree organizers has left Jeonbuk with nothing but damage.

Fans are also reacting strongly. Fans commented on the post, saying, “How does it make sense to give a few days’ notice before an important game,” “A soccer field is a place to play soccer, not a concert hall,” and “What about the away and home fans who have already decided on their accommodation, transportation, and schedule?”
