Red chants will echo through Gwanghwamun Square at dawn on Sept. 9 to cheer the national team to victory after reaching the U-20 World Cup quarterfinals for the third time after 1983 and 2019.
The Korea Football Association announced that it will hold a street cheer at Gwanghwamun Square in Seoul from 5 a.m. on the 9th to support the national team against Italy in the FIFA U-20 World Cup semifinals at 6 a.m. on the 9th. The Jongno District Office in Seoul held a deliberation committee on the afternoon of the 8th and gave final approval to hold the street cheer.
The U-20 World Cup street cheer, which will be organized by the national team’s supporters, the Red Devils, is being jointly promoted by the Korea Federation of Businessmen and Industry, the Seoul Metropolitan Government, and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
It will be the first time in about seven months that Gwanghwamun Square has hosted a street cheer since the three group stage matches and the Round of 16 match against Brazil in Qatar last November.
Previously, large-scale group cheers were held at the U-20 World Cup. This is the sixth time that Park Joo-young’s highly anticipated performance at the 2005 tournament in Switzerland was followed by the group stage match against Brazil, the 2017 tournament in South Korea, the round of 16 match against Portugal, and the final match against Ukraine in Poland in 2019.메이저놀이터
The team’s morale has never been higher with the decision to hold street cheers in the face of difficult circumstances. It will be interesting to see if the Korean people can rally behind the team to defeat Italy and become the first team in history to reach two consecutive finals.
