Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Park Bo-gyun and Jeollabuk-do Governor Kim Kwan-young announced at a press conference at the Jamboree Press Center on the afternoon of the 6th that “the Jamboree K-pop performance, which had been postponed, will be held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 11th.”
“The Jeonju World Cup Stadium is about 50 minutes away from the Saemangeum Jamboree campsite, and above all, it is a place where safety management experience and know-how have been accumulated and managed well,” the minister explained, adding, “We judged it to be the best place for the passion of Jeonbuk-do and the people of Jeonbuk-do to be quickly connected.”
On June 6, Jeonbuk Hyundai announced on its official social media that “the K-pop performance and closing ceremony of the 2023 Saemangeum World Scouting Jamboree will be held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 11th. As a result, Jeonbuk’s two home games scheduled for next week will be rescheduled.” The K-pop performance and closing ceremony will require several days of preparation and cleanup, including setting up and dismantling the stage.

On the 9th, Jeonju World Cup Stadium was scheduled to host the first leg of the FA Cup quarterfinals (Jeonbuk-Incheon United) and the 26th round of the K League 1 (Jeonbuk-Suwon Samsung) on the 12th.
Due to the ongoing 2023 World Scouting Jamboree, Jeonbuk Hyundai was forced to find a new home just three days before the event. Jeonbuk is reportedly considering a variety of options, including switching the location of home and away games, rescheduling the event itself, and hosting a third neutral site.
Soccer fans are reacting strongly. Various soccer communities are expressing strong dissatisfaction, saying, “A soccer field is a place to play soccer, not a concert hall,” “How does it make sense to give a few days’ notice before an important game,” and “It ruins the jamboree and ruins Jeonbuk.”
“We apologize for the confusion caused to our fans by the sudden rescheduling of the game,” Jeonbuk said in a statement, adding, “We will announce the details of the game as soon as they are finalized.”
