‘Man City-Atletico’ clash in Korea… This summer’s Couple series also ‘predicts the jackpot’

Big clubs in Europe will face off in front of Korean fans this summer. 

An official from the soccer world said on the 20th through ‘Footballist’, “Man City and Atletico are visiting Korea for the Coupang Play Series this summer.” There will be two matches between Man City and Team K-League and between Man City and Atletico.”

The Coupang Play series is a large soccer event that hit Korea last summer. In 2022, Son Heung-min’s team Tottenham Hotspur and La Liga prestigious Sevilla visited Korea and met Korean fans. Tottenham faced Sevilla after playing their first match against the K-League All-Star team, Team K-League. Seoul and Suwon World Cup Stadiums, where the two games were held, recorded full crowds.

This year, the Couple series is coming back even more powerfully. Two European big club teams are visiting Korea. Manchester City under Pep Guardiola and Atletico under Diego Simeone. The two teams are big clubs that can captivate Korean soccer fans even without Korean players.

Man City is challenging to win three crowns, including the English Premier League (EPL) title competition, the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL), and the FA Cup. Early that day, he defeated Bayern Munich and advanced to the UCL semifinals. Atlético are in third place in La Liga. It is difficult to compete for the title, but in the second half of the season, it is forming the ‘La Liga Semifinals’ following Barcelona and Real Madrid. 먹튀검증

Both teams are packed with star players. Man City boasts a splendid squad including Elling Hollan, who is bombing 48 goals this season alone, as well as Riyad Mahrez, Jack Grealish and Phil Foden. Atlético has Antoine Griezmann, who revived this season, Spanish national striker Alvaro Morata, and World Cup champion Rodrigo DePaul.

Manchester City’s first opponent is expected to be Team K-League. The Professional Football Federation and Coupang Play signed a comprehensive partnership agreement last year, including new media broadcasting rights. The Kupple series is also part of it. An official from the federation said, “We can use the end of July when there is no K League 1 schedule. We are thinking of an all-star team like last season.”

Meanwhile, Coupang is about to announce the Couple Series schedule at 2:30 pm on the same day.
