The 2022 Southeast Asian Football Federation (AFF) Mitsubishi Cup, called the ‘Southeast Asian World Cup’, is hot. It was not hot enough to cause overheating and even an unfortunate accident.
Indonesia will play the first leg of the 2022 AFF Mitsubishi Cup semifinals at the Gelora Bungkarno Stadium in Anbang Jakarta on the 6th (hereinafter Korean time). The second game will be held at My Dinh Stadium in Hanoi, Vietnam on the 9th.
For countries belonging to the AFF, where major tournaments such as the World Cup and Asian Cup are ‘feasts for others’, the AFF Cup, which can challenge the championship at any time and has strong regional rivalry, is the best soccer content. As a result, some fans cause problems with their somewhat overheated passion.메이저놀이터
Originally, the match was scheduled to kick-off at 7:30 pm local time in Indonesia, but it was delayed by 3 hours and held at 4:30 pm. This is because the Indonesian Football Association judged that it was necessary to secure the field of vision for safe stadium management.
There is a reason. In the home match between Thailand and Indonesia on December 29 last year, Indonesia has already experienced a major accident.
At that time, Indonesian fans broke the windows of the Thai team’s bus arriving at the stadium and attacked by throwing Molotov cocktails. More fans of both teams, excited by this incident, clashed and bloodshed both inside and outside the stadium.
For this reason, this tournament is held as a daytime game for safer management. Vietnamese coach Park Hang-seo expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that the match time was advanced due to safety issues, saying, “It makes no sense that the country that will host the 2023 FIFA U20 World Cup is unstable enough to change the time due to safety issues.”
It was a problem that could be raised enough as an away team coach who had to suddenly adapt to a new environment, but Indonesian media poured out criticism, saying, “Coach Hang-seo Park catches fault.” According to Vietnamese media ‘VN Express’, on the homepages of major media outlets, aggressive comments from fans of both teams fighting over this issue are pouring endlessly.
