Bordeaux-Nantes live in South Korea
This weekend was a very special occasion for the club, and particularly our fans in South Korea: Bordeaux-Nantes was broadcast live in the homeland of Ui-Jo Hwang, and the Korean ace duly repsonded by scoring one goal and setting up another as Bordeaux romped to victory in the Atlantic Derby!
The match was screened at GoAle, a local business devoted to the development of amateur football. Their clubhouse is the centre of their training operations, but also includes a café / bar, two reception rooms and a football pitch.
On sunday, even a few thousand miles from Bordeaux, a few thousand miles from the stadium, Seoul will be cheering on Hwang Ui-Jo 🇰🇷 and Bordeaux !— Girondins English (@girondins_en) November 2, 2019
From now on, the Girondins are in Seoul ! 🔵⚪ #FCGBFCN pic.twitter.com/P2Nz607zlG
At half-time, two lucky fans were presented with a Girondins shirt signed by Ui-Jo.
In total, more than a hundred football fans turned out for the event.
This was the Girondins' first official event in South Korea, capitalising on the club's growing popularity in the country since Ui-Jo joined us.
