It has been postponed for a year, 메이저사이트 and people born in 1999 can join the men’s soccer team of the Hangzhou Asian Games, which will kick off in September this year.
According to the Korea Sports Council and the Korea Football Association, the Hangzhou Asian Games Organizing Committee has recently announced that the age limit for men’s soccer players is ‘born after January 1, 1999’.
In other words, the age limit for participating players has been adjusted to 24 years old or younger (U-24).
As in the Olympics, men’s soccer at the Asian Games sets an age limit for players under the age of 23 (U-23), and can include up to three players per team without age restrictions.
Women’s soccer has no age limit.
As the Hangzhou Asian Games were postponed for a year due to Corona 19, attention was focused on how to set the age limit for men’s soccer players.
In the end, in the aftermath of Corona 19, it was also postponed for a year, following the precedent of the Tokyo Olympics held in 2021, changing the age limit from U-23 to U-24 so as not to harm the athletes.
As a result, coach Hwang Seon-hong of the Korean under-23 national team, which is trying to win three consecutive Asian Games following Incheon in 2014 and Jakarta and Palembang in 2018, has a wider range of options.
Won-sang Eom (Ulsan Hyundai), Young-wook Cho (Sangmu Kim Cheon), Jae-hyeon Ko (Daegu FC), and Woo-young Jung (Freiburg, Germany) ), Hong Hyun-seok (Ghent, Belgium) and others were born in 1999.
Meanwhile, the final entry for this tournament is 22 players, including three goalkeepers, an increase of two from the previous tournament.
Player replacement during the game is also possible from the existing three to a maximum of five (one additional in case of extension) as in the Tokyo Olympics.
The Hangzhou Asian Games will be held from September 23rd to October 8th.
