Will we see Griezmann and Simeone in Korea? Report on ‘Atletico in Korea this summer’

The Spanish daily newspaper ‘Marca’ reported that the schedule for Atletico Madrid’s visit to Korea this summer has been set.

According to the media, Korea was included in Atletico’s 2023 summer tour schedule. Only final negotiations remain. Atlético will have a long tour, starting in Korea, going to Monterrey, Mexico, and San Francisco, USA. I plan to play 1 or 2 games in Korea. The opponent team to play in Korea is unknown. In North America, teams from Spain face each other. They will face Real Sociedad in Monterrey and Sevilla in San Francisco.

Last summer, the Spanish club Sevilla came to Korea to play against Tottenham Hotspur. Sevilla interacted with Korean soccer fans through various events such as games and field training as well as experiencing Korean culture.

Atlético is one of Spain’s top three, along with Real Madrid and Barcelona. From the 2009-2010 season until recently, he won 10 trophies and reigned as a strong player in the 2010s. He also won the 2020-2021 Spanish La Liga championship. Coach Diego Simeone and famous players such as Antoine Griezmann, Rodrigo DePaul, Marcos Llorente, Saul Niguez and Alvaro Morata are lined up. Matt Doherty, who had already visited Korea for Tottenham last year, is also a member. There is also a mania level in Korea with a unique play style that is thick and tough.

Last year, the match between Tottenham and Sevilla,온라인카지노 which was held in Korea for the ‘Coupang Play Series’, was very popular. It is known that this year, several European powerhouses, including teams belonging to Korean players, received offers to visit Korea and proceeded with negotiations.

From the club’s point of view, the summer tour is a valuable opportunity to increase revenue. However, due to the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19), Atletico has not been able to earn money for three years since the tour in 2019. It seems that the reason why they have a somewhat unreasonable tour schedule this summer through three countries is because of the accumulated thirst. Atletico and Sevilla’s schedule in San Francisco ends only a week before the start of the 2023-2024 La Liga. The squad will return to Spain, barely adjusting to the time difference and going back to their regular schedule.
