Klinsmann’s men will be backed by a large contingent of Korean fans to reach the final.

On June 6 at 12:00 p.m. (KST), South Korea and Jordan will meet at the Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium in Doha, Qatar, in the quarterfinals of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) 2023 Asian Cup.

Many Korean fans are expected to travel to the stadium to cheer on their team. The Red Devils, the national team’s official cheering squad, the Qatar Korean Association, and the Korea Football Association (KFA) worked together to secure tickets. The Red Devils communicated with the KFA, which purchased 1,000 tickets and transferred them to Korean fans at full price. The KFA distributed the tickets around Al-Sad Futsal Stadium on the 5th, a day before the game.

“Today, we expect 100 Red Devils, 1,000 Korean community members, and 2,000-3,000 Koreans who bought their own tickets to come to the stadium,” said Jung Ji-yong, director of the Qatar Korean Association, who helped distribute the tickets.

Not only Korean fans, but also foreign fans are expected to cheer for Korea. “There are a lot of foreign fans cheering for Korea locally, especially East Asians from the Philippines, Malaysia, and Thailand. I’ve heard a lot of news that Japanese people are also coming to cheer.”

The support will be on a different scale than the previous round of 16 and quarterfinals. In the Round of 16, 20 Red Devils cheered among the 30,000+ Saudi crowd. Against Australia, more Korean fans showed up, but they were spread around the stadium and not in the supporters’ section. This time, Korean fans are gathered together in one place to make their voices heard.

Mr. Jeong Ji-yong also said, “The difference between the quarterfinals and the semifinals is that the Red Devils came in a large group, and with the help of the association in cooperation with the Korean American 토토사이트 Association, we expect a lot of people to cheer, which is much different than before. The Korean community is already looking for tickets for the final and making many inquiries, and they are cheering with excitement, confident of victory,” he added.

The popularity of the Asian Cup has grown as the tournament has progressed, with the Korean national team staging dramatic upsets in the round of 16 and quarterfinals to ignite the hearts of soccer fans, and the first trophy for the greatest Asian player of all time, Korean captain Son Heung-min. With just one step left to the final, the nation’s hopes for a first title in 64 years are high. If they make it to the final, many Korean fans will be spending the Lunar New Year holidays in Qatar.
