Seongnam Mayor Shin Sang-jin participated in the launch ceremony and delivered a plan to operate the new club.
Seongnam FC held a ceremony for the 2023 season at Onnuri Hall on the 1st floor of Seongnam City Hall on the 18th. About 500 Seongnam citizens and fans participated in the ceremony, which will be held four years after COVID-19, and coach Lee Ki-hyeong, the team, and youth players attended. Seongnam Mayor Shin Sang-jin, the owner of the club, and members of the National Assembly, including Kim Tae-nyeon, Yoon Young-chan, and Kim Byeong-wook, who have Seongnam as their constituencies, participated. The Seongnam City Council, the Gyeonggi-do Council, and the heads of each district participated in the event.
The ceremony officially began with the introduction of the guests and the Seongnam FC youth team. Coach Lee Ki-hyung and other staff were introduced, and the players lined up. The introduction of the team ended with the captains including Shim Dong-woon (captain), Cho Seong-wook, and Jung Han-min (vice-captain Lee Sang). He greeted the audience with the slogan ‘Spread your wings’ and the goal of ‘promoting to K League 1 and the largest number of spectators in K League 2’.
Shin Sang-jin, mayor and owner of Seongnam, said, “This launching ceremony is a very meaningful event. Seongnam FC must have been uncomfortable with fans and citizens as it has gone up and down in the media unfavorably. This was repeated, so I even thought about selling it. On the other hand, I thought that it would be nice if Seongnam FC, which is sharing the great development of Seongnam, unites one million citizens and functions as a driving force for Seongnam City.” 먹튀검증
He said, “I decided to take the lead in promoting development and citizen integration, so that Seongnam FC, together with Seongnam citizens, will be known throughout the country and a lot of great players will come out.” After that, Kim Young-ha was appointed as CEO. Neither of them knew their faces, and they were recommended by anyone and brought them in. I saw them for the first time when I was given a letter of appointment.”
The operating plan was disclosed. “First, we will eliminate the non-transparent management and sloppy parts. We have done so since the appointment of the director and CEO. We asked the CEO to lead Seongnam FC, which is in difficult economic times. Clean operation so that Seongnam FC can stand tall again. I will,” he said.
He continued, “I will create a place for grand integration where the citizens who love Seongnam FC can be fully active and participate a lot. It is the 50th anniversary of the promotion to Seongnam City, and I want to give a big gift to the citizens at the end of the year. As the owner and the mayor of Seongnam, I will do everything I can,” he said.
