The Korea Under-20 (U-20) National Team, led by head coach Kim Eun-joong, will hold a street cheer for the U-20 World Cup semifinal match between Italy and South Korea at Gwanghwamun Square in Seoul at dawn on Sept. 9.

The Korea Football Association announced on Monday, “Street support for the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup Argentina semifinal against Italy will be held at Gwanghwamun Square in Seoul from 5 a.m. on the 9th.” “On the same day, the Jongno-gu Office in Seoul held a deliberation committee and finally approved the street support,” the association said.

The semifinal between South Korea and Italy will take place at 6 a.m. at La Plata Stadium in La Plata, Argentina. With a win, South Korea will reach a new milestone by reaching the finals for the second consecutive time, following the 2019 tournament in Poland.

The street cheer, organized by the national team’s supporters, the Red Devils, is supported by the Federation of Korean Businessmen and Entrepreneurs, the Seoul Metropolitan Government, and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

Heavy rainfall of 20 to 30 millimeters per hour, accompanied by thunder, lightning, and hail, is forecast for the Seoul metropolitan area from tonight until dawn tomorrow, so there is a high chance of rain during the cheer.

Seoul plans to deploy a total of 295 people, including 181 from the ward office, police, fire, and Seoul Metro, and 114 safety personnel from the organizers, to establish an emergency response system for safety management, crowd management, traffic control, and first aid support.스포츠토토

The street cheer will be held in Gwanghwamun Square for the first time in about seven months after the round of 16 match between Korea and Brazil at the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar on Dec. 6 last year. At the time of the match against Brazil, more than 20,000 people gathered, far exceeding the police’s estimate of 15,000, despite cold waves and snowfall.
