The Day One incident, which was plagued with noise throughout the season, eventually brought up the basketball fans.
Goyang basketball fans staged a truck protest in front of the KBL Center in Sinsa Station, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, asking KBL to come up with countermeasures against the Goyang Day One incident, which left its hometown after only one season after its re-foundation.
Goyang basketball fans held a truck demonstration for a total of three days from the 2nd to the 3rd and 5th. Through the electronic display board installed on the truck, they said, ‘KBL, who neglected the Day 1 incident, take responsibility and protect the players!’ voiced etc.
Day One Sports took over the Orion professional basketball team last year and participated in the KBL league. However, ahead of the opening of the regular season in the 2022-2023 season, financial problems such as delays in paying KBL subscription fees and non-payment of salaries for players and home games were caused.
The team, which attracted Carrot Insurance as a naming sponsor and played under the name of Carrot Jumpers in Goyang, finished fifth in the regular league in the 2022-2023 season and advanced to the semifinals of the playoffs. However, even after the season ends, Day One Sports has not been able to resolve the payment of team salaries.
In response, KBL held a board of directors meeting on the 31st of last month and issued an ultimatum, saying, “If specific measures for the future club management plan are not implemented by June 15th, we will hold an extraordinary general meeting on the morning of the 16th to deliberate on the club’s qualifications.”먹튀검증
Currently, Day One Sports is known to be discussing the agreement with the city of Busan and the attraction of naming sponsors.
However, Goyang basketball fans criticized Day One Sports’ move to leave Goyang and move to Busan after one season of taking over the club, and demanded that KBL prepare damage compensation, treatment improvement, and protection regulations for players. It appears to be in action.
