On the 27th, the ‘2023 Chungju Apple Cup National Youth Soccer Club Festival’ kicked off at the Chungju Youth Soccer Field in Chungju, Chungcheongbuk-do. With 85 teams from across the country applying for the tournament amidst intense interest and love, the festival, which is the largest of its kind, kicked off in Chungju, Chungcheongbuk-do.
The first day of the festival featured games for the lower grades (kindergarten, first grade, second grade, and third grade). It rained a bit in the afternoon, but that didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the young players. It became a place of soccer festival where the young players were happy with a soccer ball on the field.
During the festival, the Chungju Volunteer Center prepared various experience programs such as parking service, balloon art, POP handwriting, socks, and woodworking, so that not only the players but also their siblings and families who participated in the tournament could achieve the purpose of the festival through various experiences.
The city of Chungju has established itself as a center for adult soccer, and the ‘2023 Chungju Apple Cup National Youth Soccer Festival’ was organized by the city and the Chungju Football Association to attract attention as a host for various types of soccer tournaments and festivals, which the city is trying to do in a new way to build and develop youth soccer infrastructure.
SH Sports Agency (CEO Moon Sung-hwan), a total sports marketing company and the organizer of the festival, will host and organize the ‘2023 Chungju Apple Cup National Youth Football Club Festival’ by adding a mom division (mothers with children of football players and Korean mothers with children) to the existing kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade, fourth grade, and U12 divisions.
In addition to soccer, we have also prepared promotional marketing to develop and promote tourism products such as various attractions, food, and things to do in the Chungju area in connection with ‘sports culture tourism’ and contribute to the revitalization of the local economy.
