For Suwon FC v Seongnam FC,

Image

There's a betting between the mayor of Seongnam city and the one of Suwon city that the loser will fly the winner's flag at their home ground.

I hope we're talking Graeme Souness style flag flying here...

A entertaining match saw Suwon finding space all over the place and using it to be super aggressive. They didn't have that many shots, but it wasn't for a lack of trying. They did well for a newly promoted team agains a team that is considered one of the best in the league. In fact, I might even say they looked the better team.

ImageImage
ImageImage

Suwon went all out.
They had flag dudes. WHOOOOO!
They had cheer girls! whooo! (Ooe was even really cute, but unfortunately like a schoolgirls. Me no likes um like schoolgirls, if me likes cheer girls at all.)
They even had a poor sod without a mic or platform trying to rev up the crowd in the West stand. DOH!
All three buggered off to the "Fan's Stand" when they realised no one was interested in what they were doing. At least in the other stand they could pretend they were helping.

ImageImage

There was a fake band during half time. Shoot them for whatever the hell they were tying to do, then shoot them again for helping make "Soo-won E-Feu Shi" a thing.
And there was a real old timey, noisy making band in the stands.

Less than a year ago the team would have been happy to get that little part of the stadium as full as it was today. And today, even though more free tickets were given out than the Bluewings do for a Supermatch, you still have to feel this was a huge success for their first home game in the top league.

(Side note, all these people entered the stadium through just 2 or three gates O.o )

Unfortunately this mass of free tickets meant loads of people who didn't really have much of an interest in the game or football in general. If the ball even looked like it might be going in the direction of the goal them people would start yelling, and go all "aaaah"ing when the ball hit the corner flag. Yea people, that was REALLY close. Great pass? Super footwork? Build up that is working to that huge gap over there? Nope, not a super duper shot for the corner flag, so we don't care.

That, and the high school girls who constantly walk past to go buy more food, or quickly say something to their friends on the other side of the block or whatever, all while texting and grooming themselves in the phone's reflection. GET OFF MY LAWN, YOU DAMN KIDS!

Sadly, while the game was going on the women's team were practicing on the artificial pitch next door. You would think they would have time and tickets for the ladies to go watch their city colleagues on their big day. What a shame.

I'm sure most people will find her hot, and she is nice, but just LOOKS too young for me. Even in school I preferred women who looked to be in their 30s.

As for the crowd, I'm not sure. If they can get a decent run going and say nice and midfield, then I see many of these people coming back. Maybe 3-4k per game? Which is way more than their 300-400 last year :P

They won't be back. How many were Bluewings fans? How many were told to go by Suwon City council?

Steve Han on Twitter keeps posting the stat that the average fan at Bluewings paid 6k won or something last season which means a hell of a lot them must have been freebies despite the PR about not giving out free tickets. I doubt the paying fans at Suwon FC will increase much at all this year. They might get 1500 instead of 1000. The rest will be hangers on.

Suwons average last season was 1355 not 400. Their biggest was 6000

That average was because of their run near the end of the season. If not for that it would have been much lower, I'm sure. I was at a 4 or 5 of their games. REALLY quiet during the first half. Even for their first game they were only able to fill the small stand that I show in the one photo. That, with the people in the VIP section maybe 1,500. The games for a few months after that were, comparatively speaking dead with only 400-500 people

Looking up the records they are saying there were 4500 people at that first game last year. That number doesn't make sense.

Stadium capacity is 27,000. Take out most of the south stand (there were still people at the sides and then the small stand in front of it) and we are down to maybe 20,000-22,00. I'm no genius, but if a full stadium like this weekend is just under 15,000, then surely that first game must have had the stadium 1/4 completely packed.

As a side note, Suwon FC are currently only charging 9k per ticket. Not bad at all :)
