Jeju-Pohang FA Cup semifinals canceled and postponed due to typhoon impact
The FA Cup semi-final match between Jeju United and Pohang Steelers was canceled and postponed due to a typhoon.
The Korea Football Association (KFA)토토사이트 said on the 9th, “The FA Cup match between Jeju and Pohang scheduled for today has been canceled or postponed due to typhoon and safety concerns.” It was confirmed as a postponement under the judgment of the game supervisor. The replay schedule will be announced at a later date.”
Initially, Jeju and Pohang were scheduled to play the semi-finals of the 2023 Hana One Q FA Cup at 7:30 pm on the same day at the Jeju World Cup Stadium. However, as Typhoon Kanun No. 6 moved north and came into the Jeju area of influence, the game was canceled due to safety concerns. The previous day (8th), the Jeju club explained, “In accordance with the FA Cup operating regulations, discussions on postponement of the game are being conducted depending on the situation on the day of the match, so we are preparing for the game thoroughly as normal.”
On the 9th, Jeju announced on its official social media (SNS), “After discussions with officials such as the game supervisor and the tournament headquarters, we decided to postpone today’s game for everyone’s safety in case the game cannot be played due to sudden weather changes caused by the typhoon. “I hope that the fans who visited will follow the on-site guidance, and we ask for the understanding of all fans. In addition, I would like to express my deep understanding to the Pohang away fans who have taken a particularly long step.”
As the Jeju-Pohang match was postponed, both FA Cup semi-final matches were postponed. Previously, the match between Jeonbuk Hyundai and Incheon United at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 9th was postponed due to the Saemangeum Jamboree retirement ceremony and K-pop concert schedule. The concert was relocated to Seoul World Cup Stadium due to the influence of the typhoon.
