The grass at Chuncheon Songam Sports Town, the home stadium of Gangwon FC, which was recently criticised for its ‘patchy grass’, has been revitalised. After more than 20 days of extensive maintenance work, it has regained its lush green colour.

Gangwon was criticised and criticised for a while last month for its ‘patchy grass’. In fact, the turf at Chuncheon Songam Sports Town was so badly damaged that it was difficult to play normally in the top league of professional football. In particular, the turf was deeply dug and layered in many places. The centre of the pitch was completely cracked, as if a tractor had run over it.메이저사이트

Naturally, the playing conditions were adversely affected. Irregular bounds were common, and it wasn’t uncommon for passes to go out of play. Players were tripping and having trouble controlling the ball. They weren’t able to showcase their own style of play, which could lead to serious injuries.

Eventually, after discussions with the Chuncheon Municipal Corporation, which maintains the turf, Kangwon decided to undertake a major renovation. All of the badly damaged turf was ploughed up and repaired. Fortunately, it was their second consecutive away game after the Pohang Steelers on 21 March, so they were able to buy some time, and after about 20 days of work, the pitch was back to life.

A Gangwon official said, “We started the grass repair work on the 22nd according to the plan we reported to the federation. “The federation’s competition supervisor visited and inspected it, and gave us the green light to play the home game,” he explained.

Once the ground was in good condition, the game went smoothly. In the Hana One Q K League 2023 Round 17 match between Gangwon FC and Daejeon Hana Citizen at Chuncheon Songam Sports Town on the 7th, both teams played their trademark fast counter-attacking football and battled fiercely.

However, Gangwon still hasn’t found an answer to the severe damage to the turf. “We haven’t found a definite cause for the problem before,” said a Kangwon official, “and the Chuncheon City Corporation is still trying to find the cause.” Chuncheon City Corporation has previously stated that it has made every effort to find the cause, including commissioning experts, but has yet to find the exact cause.
