Aiming to escape the relegation zone, Gangwon FC will look to make it two wins in a row for the second time this season.
Kangwon, led by head coach Yoon Jeong-hwan, will host Incheon United in the 31st round of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 at Gangneung Sports Complex at 4:30 p.m. on April 24. After climbing out of last place with a 3-1 victory over Jeonbuk Hyundai in Round 30, Gangwon will look to extend their winning streak against Incheon to catch up with 10th-place Suwon FC.
Incheon, currently in seventh place, will also be fighting for a Final A spot. Incheon has been on a roll lately. After finishing fourth last season and qualifying for the Asian Football Confederation Champions League (ACL) for the first time in franchise history, Incheon made major additions before the season and have lived up to their billing with six wins in their last nine matches. The team’s momentum is also soaring, with a 4-2 away win over defending Japanese J-League champions Yokohama F. Marinos in the club’s first-ever ACL qualifying match on April 19. The fact that they are undefeated against Gangwon this season is also a confidence booster.
Gangwon will need to replicate their offensive performance against Jeonbuk. Gangwon recorded 20 shots on goal and nine on target against Jeonbuk. In the end, Gangwon will need their offense to come through. Vitor Gabriel, who scored his debut goal against Jeonbuk, as well as Gallego and Kim Dae-won, who are back in the scoring column after a long absence, are expected to make an impact.
Gangwon FC will try to mobilize the largest crowd of the season with various events to inspire the players. Gangwon’s highest home attendance this season was 11,084 against Suwon Samsung in Round 24.
The off-field events include a sponsor zone with Winnia Dimchae and squeeze beer, a 7-Eleven where you can purchase a K League Panini card, and a team fan signing session. Before kickoff, fans who show enthusiasm will receive toys from toy content company Toytron. At halftime, there will be a prize draw for a light SUV Casper (1), Bridgestone tire exchange voucher (1), Kangwon Hanwoo gift set (2), Skybay 1-night stay for 2 (2), and WINIA back massager (1).
MD Store will also hold a collaboration event with local cafes during the ‘Gangneung Coffee Festival’. New and popular products will be re-released to reward fans for their love. When purchasing MD products, 10 people will receive a voucher for Gyochon Chicken through a lottery. Adult spectators who purchase a reusable cup will receive a can of Gangwon Beer, and those who bring a reusable cup will receive a 1,000 won discount on draft beer.카지노
