Incheon United’s change has been successful.
On the 5th, Incheon played the second round of the ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023’ against Daejeon Hana Citizen at the Incheon Soccer Stadium.
Incheon started the first round with an away game against FC Seoul. In the first game, despite not bad performance, it was a 1-2 loss, and it was regrettable. In the second round, they were determined to win as much as they played the home opener against the promoted team.
The Incheon soccer stadium was crowded with many fans two hours before the start of the game. And the footsteps of the home fans headed to the ‘Blue Market’, the club’s official store in the stadium.
Incheon has renovated the club store in the stadium to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the club’s founding this season. The store was moved to the Sky Lounge space on the 2nd floor instead of the 1st floor of the existing stadium. At the entrance to the first floor, a structure with the club’s emblem was installed, and there was a staircase leading to the second floor with the phrase ‘WELCOME TO BLUE MARKET’.
When I climbed the stairs to the entrance of the store, the most noticeable part was the view of the Sky Lounge, where you can see the stadium at a glance. Before entering the store, fans could feel the green ground through the glass. 안전놀이터 Viewing the ground through the glass was possible even within the store. Incheon placed various MD tops on the window side so that you can enjoy grass and uniforms at the same time. In addition, four fitting rooms were placed in the store to provide convenience.
An official from Incheon said, “In the team survey conducted after the home game, there was an opinion that the existing store space was narrow, so we prepared to relocate from the end of 2022. We chose the Sky Lounge while looking for a space where fans could enjoy in a pleasant environment, and the interior was planned by referring to the examples of advanced overseas clubs.”
“We focused on an efficient and sophisticated interior that can serve as both exhibition and storage. We increased the number of changing rooms from one to four to make it easier for fans to shop. In addition, we wanted to convey the feeling of being in a special space through the view of the stadium at a glance through the whole glass.”
