‘Future of Jeonbuk’ Jeonbuk Youth lays foundation for growth through active overseas exchanges

Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC expands its investment in the future through various overseas exchanges.

Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC has resumed its youth overseas exchanges that were conducted before the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. From 2013 to 2019, Jeonbuk hosted an international exchange with French Ligue 1 side Olympique Lyonnais, where coaching staff exchanges and youth exchanges took place.

The results of the exchange are the youngsters of Jeonbuk. In addition to the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games gold medalist and Jeonbuk Hyundai’s head coach, Kim Jung-hoon, the club has produced a number of players who are currently playing for Jeonbuk Hyundai’s B team, including Kang Sang-yoon (Busan Lease), Lee Min-hyuk (Gyeongnam Lease), Lee Ji-hoon (Gimcheon Commerce), Cho Jin-ho (Serbia 1st), Seong Seong-jin (Serbia 2nd), Lee Sung-yoon, Park Joon-beom, Noh Yoon-sang, Kim Rae-woo, and others who have moved on to pursue new challenges.안전놀이터

With the end of the pandemic, Jeonbuk Hyundai has resumed overseas exchanges in earnest.

Technical Director Park Ji-sung signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with PSV Eindhoven in the Netherlands, which has a well-established youth system in Europe, and in May, PSV’s youth coaches came to Korea to apply European youth training sessions to all age groups of the Jeonbuk Hyundai Youth Team, seeking development in parallel with the domestic training program.

In addition, Jeonbuk Hyundai selected six promising players, including U-15 Kim Ye-geon, and sent them to PSV Eindhoven for five weeks of youth training. The team will go through various training programs for each session, age group, and position, and will receive a separate report on their strengths and weaknesses and reinforcement programs needed for growth according to the PSV coaching system to continue continuous and systematic management.

Meanwhile, the Jeonbuk U-15 team participated in training in the Spanish La Liga from September 12th to 20th with the title of ‘2022 Season U15 K League Championship’. Through this competition, the team experienced European La Liga soccer culture and played matches against European youth teams to strengthen its international competitiveness.

In addition to Europe, Jeonbuk Hyundai’s youth teams have also participated in international exchanges with Japanese teams in Asia. The U-15 team participated in the Shizuoka Invitational Suruka Cup in early October and played against Japanese youth teams such as Shimizu S-Pulse, while the U-12 team participated in the Kashima Antlers Nike Cup in September.

“It is one of Jeonbuk’s philosophies and visions that our future is the youth,” said Jeonbuk CEO Heo Byung-gil. “We promise to provide generous support for the players to grow through various international exchange events, and hope that they will develop and grow to become the mainstay of Jeonju Province.”
