Gangwon FC’s Yoo Sang-hoon surprised fans with a surprise meeting.
Gangwon FC announced on the 20th, “Goalkeeper Yoo Sang-hoon was selected as the ‘Gangwon FC Player of the Month with Fila’ for the last time this season.”
For three days from the 4th of last month, Kangwon FC’s YouTube channel voted for six candidates: Kang Ji-hoon, Gallego, Yoo Sang-hoon, Lee Jeong-hyeop, Lim Chang-woo, and Jeong Seung-yong. Among them, Yoo Sang-hoon, who received the most votes, was selected as the Player of the Month for October.
Yoo Sang-hoon, who moved to Gangwon FC this season, played 35 games and defended Gangwon FC’s goal. He recorded 9 clean sheets and made several ‘super saves’ during matches, much loved by the fans. In particular, in the 34R Jeju expedition, he led the team’s first victory in the final round with an amazing penalty kick.
On the 13th, Yoo Sang-hoon met Lee Chan-young, who was selected as a fan of the second half of ‘2022 Gangwon FC MVF (Most Valuable Fan) with Fila’ for the award. Mr. Lee Chan-young did not know the identity of the presenter, but he was surprised and embarrassed when he met Yoo Sang-hoon. The two held a one-on-one fan meeting in a warm atmosphere, exchanging awards and asking questions they were curious about. The meeting between Yoo Sang-hoon and fans will be uploaded to Gangwon FC YouTube and Naver TV. 스포츠토토
Lee Chan-young said, “This year, I watched 45 games of Gangwon FC’s A and B teams. In particular, it is an honor to receive the award directly from Yoo Sang-hoon. He didn’t even think of it, but he said, “I will cheer for Gangwon FC harder next year with an unchanging heart.”
Yoo Sang-hoon said, “I want to express my gratitude to the fans as much as the awards directly selected by the fans. Next year, I will do my best every month so that I can receive this award again,” he said. I hope there will be more opportunities like this in the future, and it will be an opportunity to get closer to the fans.
