The spirit of fair play missing in college football… Chairman Byun Seok-hwa “I’m sorry”

On the 25th and 26th, the final match of the 59th Spring University Football Federation, Hansan Daecheopgi and Tongyeonggi, was held at Sanyang Sports Park 3, located in Tongyeong, Gyeongnam. In a competition boasting history and tradition in which 85 universities participate, the faces of college football officials were dark. Sighs came out from all over the place, and even after the tournament was over, they couldn’t smile brightly. This is because of the controversy that occurred at a recent college football game.

The beginning of the incident was the semifinals of the Tongyeonggi competition between Yonsei University and Kyonggi University on the 23rd. In the ninth minute of the first half, Yonsei University scored the first goal and took the lead. However, both teams soon showed no intention of attacking. From the 10th minute to the 33rd minute in the first half, 23 minutes passed helplessly. During the game, some players from Yonsei University showed some leisure in lifting. The game ended with Yonsei University winning 2-1, but both teams received strong criticism.

The reason for the scene that caused a lot of controversy was the strategy of the two directors. Leaders of both teams used tactics they had prepared for the final. Kyonggi University, which judged that it was weak compared to Yonsei University, prepared a ‘counterattack after the players’ defense’ when they lost the first goal. Gyeonggi University adhered to this strategy and was able to advance to the quarterfinals. Yonsei University understood this intention and did not attack it hastily.

It is impossible to argue about the strategies the two coaches brought out in the semifinals. It is impossible to discuss the decline in the level of college football as a whole by looking only at fragmentary figures. In the tournament, there is no authority to impose coercive sanctions on each team’s strategy to ‘attack’. It is said that the game was properly resumed only after the game supervisor at the time pointed it out to the coaches of both teams about three times.

The blame should be focused on the fact that both teams went against the spirit of fair play during the match between Yonsei University and Kyonggi University. Dankook University coach Park Jong-kwan met with reporters on the 25th and said, “Both teams should respect the coach’s thoughts on how to run the game.” He deserves to be punished for it.” A footballer I met on the field also pointed out that it was “something that shouldn’t come out.”스포츠토토

As the controversy grew, Byun Seok-hwa, president of the University Football Federation, bowed his head. Chairman Byeon, who met with this magazine on the 25th, said, “As the president of the federation, I would like to express my apologies for this situation. It was a match that did not fit the eye level of a footballer. It’s something that should never happen again. This situation is not just a problem for leaders. wrong with me We will work together to prevent this from happening in the future.”
