With the Son Heung-min International Youth Friendship Soccer Tournament being held next month, Chuncheon City is asking Son Heung-min to attend the welcome event, drawing attention.
As a result of this report on the 2nd, Chuncheon City will hold the Son Heung-min International Youth Friendship Soccer Tournament at Son Heung-min Sports Park in Dong-myeon, Chuncheon for four days from the 7th to the 10th of next month.

One day during the four-day tournament schedule, Son Heung-min visited Chuncheon, and the city and the players communicated. However, the visit schedule has not been specified. Here, Chuncheon City held a welcome ceremony in the city hall square on June 8 instead of the opening ceremony, and requested Son Heung-min to attend the welcome event. The schedule for the visit is expected to be revealed by the end of this month. According to the schedule, Chuncheon City plans to establish separate measures for the safety of Son Heung-min.

Starting from the ‘Son Heung-min International Youth Friendship Football Tournament’, public opinion on the need to build a football stadium is expected to be raised again in and outside the local community. The Chuncheon City Council Planning and Administration Committee recently toured soccer-only stadiums in downtown London, such as Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as part of overseas training. Na Yoo-gyeong, a member of Chuncheon City Council, said, “I was impressed by the way the stadium itself became a tourist destination and diversified merchandise products. There was also a proposal to develop the territory of the Chuncheon Citizens Soccer Team. City councilor Kim Ji-sook said, “It is also necessary to brand the citizens’ soccer team for the fanatics.”스포츠토토
