Kim Min-jae vs Lee Kang-in ‘head-to-head’ cancelled… KFA says Naples-Mallorca trip ‘unavailable’

The South Korean national football team’s match between Kim Min-jae and Lee Kang-in has been cancelled.

According to News1, the Korea Football Association (KFA) notified promoters Untouchable Sports Group and Stadium X, which had organised the domestic friendlies between Napoli and Mallorca, on the 25th of this month that they could not take place.

The two companies had planned to hold the friendlies at Seoul World Cup Stadium and Goyang Sports Complex on the 8th and 10th of next month, respectively. However, the Korean Football Association (KFA) objected to the scheduling of six K League matches on the 10th of next month. After a lengthy meeting with the organisers on the 18th, the KFA informed them that the match would not be played on the 10th.스포츠토토

The KFA asked the organisers to reply if they were willing to go ahead with only the 8th of next month, and to prove that they could afford to host foreign clubs.

The KFA asked the organisers to either post a deposit worth billions of won or submit an insurance policy of 800 million won, which is about 10 percent of the expected revenue from the first leg, as well as a statement of financial compensation in case of a player’s no-show.

The KFA was supposed to receive these documents by the morning of the 25th, but by the afternoon of the same day, it had not received a response that met the minimum requirements. After a meeting, the KFA informed the organisers that Mallorca and Naples would not be possible, and the match between Kim Min-jae and Lee Kang-in was cancelled.
