Incheon supporters introspect after water bottle throwing incident… #violence is not cheering

Self-reflection and introspection seem to be the first messages coming out of Incheon United supporters after the highly publicized water bottle throwing incident.

Incheon, led by head coach Cho Sung-hwan, are in the midst of their Hana Bank K League 1 2024 Round 13 match against Daejeon Hana Citizens, which kicked off at 4:30 p.m. on April 18 at Daejeon World Cup Stadium. 스포츠토토존 The match against Daejeon Hana was the first official match after a week that must have been a nightmare for Incheon fans.

The nightmare started with a water bottle throwing incident that took place on Nov. 11 at the Incheon Football Stadium, Incheon’s home stadium, after the K League 1 12th round match against FC Seoul. Angered by Seoul goalkeeper Baek Jong-beom’s victory roar after the game, some unaware Incheon supporters threw countless water bottles into the stadium, hitting players such as Ki Sung-yong and others, causing a huge stir in the soccer world and in society.

On this day, the Incheon supporters watched the game in a generally quiet atmosphere. There were no chants except during set pieces such as corner kicks.

In other words, it was quite restrained.

Some fans even hung up their shirts as a sign of reflection and self-reflection. The Incheon supporters’ section had a sign that read, “#Violence is not cheering #Mindful blue and black. The message was a reminder to build a healthy and mature support culture.

Meanwhile, the two teams are tied at 0-0.
