‘Busan KCC, we report.
Professional basketball team KCC is officially taking its first steps into the new “Busan Era. D-Day is September 25th. According to a report by Sports Chosun on the 17th, the city of Busan and KCC will hold a signing ceremony at the Sajik Indoor Gymnasium in Busan on the 25th to announce the start of the Busan Era in earnest. This signing ceremony is significantly different from the previous style, where officials from both the local government and the club met and pledged cooperation for a short time. Prior to the main event, the players and cheerleaders gathered to celebrate with fans, and the ceremony was held with a level of grandeur not unlike a founding ceremony.
It is reported that the city of Busan hopes to celebrate the induction of the third Korean Basketball League (KBL) team in its history with a feast and a big event. The city, which lost out to Busan KT (now Suwon KT) two years ago, has been longing for a men’s professional basketball team, actively seeking to attract the former Goyang Day One (now Goyang Sono). When the Sono Group, which took over the team after the dissolution of Day One, chose to stay in Goyang, it dramatically captured KCC, which had left Jeonju.
The city of Busan is grateful to KCC. This is why the practice of quietly passing off the signing ceremony as a culinary act cannot be followed. First of all, the event will be organized as an ‘open ceremony’ where Busan basketball fans and supporters are invited to freely watch and participate in the ceremony.
In addition, the Korean Women’s Basketball League (WKBL) Busan BNK team, which uses the same Sajik Indoor Gymnasium as its home stadium, will also participate in the event to create a ‘stage of friendship’ between the men’s and women’s professional basketball teams.
The KCC squad, which includes two of the most popular coaches in Korean professional basketball, Lee Sang-min and Heo Woong, as well as popular stars such as Lee Seung-hyun, Choi Jun-yong, Jung Chang-young, and Ra Gun-ah, will meet fans for the first time in the off-season, including fan signings and photo sessions.
Senior leaders from the city of Busan and KCC will also be on hand. The city of Busan will be represented by Mayor Park Hyung-jun, the city council chairman, and vice mayor, and the club will be represented by KCC President Jung Jae-hoon and head coach Choi Hyung-gil, who will proclaim the new Busan era. The Busan City and KCC will hold preliminary celebrations, including a fan signing ceremony, from 2 p.m. on the same day, culminating in a stage of unity at 4 p.m. with senior leaders from both sides.온라인카지노
Until now, KCC has been cautious about relocating to Jeonju, where it has been based for more than 20 years. However, with the start of the 2023-2024 season fast approaching, it is no longer possible to hide or look the other way. In the end, it was decided that Busan KCC’s move would begin in earnest from the official launch date (September 25, 2023).
