Hongcheon FC U-15 won back-to-back prizes at the 2023 Geumgangdae National Middle School Football Tournament.
Hongcheon FC U-15 was the only team from Gangwon Province to qualify for the tournament two years in a row, proving their worth on the national stage.
Although they failed to reach the final, Hongcheon FC U-15, which has been operating since 2021, currently has 52 players and coaching staff, and in a short period of time, they have grown rapidly beyond the Gangwon Special Self-Governing Province and have been able to compete with traditional powerhouses across the country.
Lee Geun-hyo, head coach of Hongcheon FC U-15, said, “It’s a new feeling to win for the second year in a row.” “With the generous support of the local government, Hongcheon Sports Association, and local residents, we will do our best to reach the final next year.”
Meanwhile, Hongcheon FC U-15 battled against Seoul Seokgwanjung in the semifinals of the 2023 Geumgangdae National Middle School Football Competition held in Pyeongchang from July 24 to August 6, trailing 0-1 at half-time, but ultimately lost 1-5 and finished in third place. 먹튀검증
