Jeju Island’s ‘international exchange support’, the ‘era of collaboration’ beyond borders has come
The sound that soccer gives is not limited to the silk game. Jeju United (hereafter referred to as Jeju) and Jeju Special Self-Governing Province (Governor Oh Young-hun) are showing ‘the value of being together’ through the international exchange support project for professional soccer teams in Thai field training.
Currently, all K-League 1 and 2 teams (25 clubs in total, 12 K-League 1 and 13 K-League 2) are in the midst of hardening for the 2023 season. Thailand is the most popular place for field training. Thirteen out of 25 clubs are training in Thailand. One of the most popular is Chiang Mai. The 6 teams (Jeju United, Suwon FC, Incheon United, Seongnam FC, Bucheon FC, Busan I-Park) including the 1st and 2nd divisions gathered together. 안전놀이터
The advantages of Chiang Mai, located in northern Thailand, are its weather and infrastructure. In addition to the mild climate with an annual average of 25 degrees optimized for training, the golf resorts mostly chosen by clubs have dedicated soccer training grounds with high-quality European-style grass, so it is good to focus on soccer. Some places even serve Korean food, so it is easy to manage your diet. However, it is regrettable that the number of sparring opponents in the practice game is limited. Most of them play practice matches with domestic clubs that are not affiliated with the same league or with Thai league 1 and 2 teams near Chiang Mai.
