The AFC announced on its official website on September 2 that it has fined Incheon United US$1,000 (approximately 1.32 million won) for the September 19 2023-2024 AFC Champions League Group G match against Yokohama F-Marinos at Yokohama Nissan Stadium.레모나토토 도메인
The AFC said Incheon United fans breached Article 39 of the AFC Disciplinary and Ethical Regulations. “According to the AFC, there was inappropriate behavior by an Incheon fan who displayed a post with a political message,” Japanese media outlet Gekisaka reported.
At the time, the Incheon fans were reportedly engaged in a quite cordial cheering match with the Yokohama F-Marinos, who share a common memory of Yoo Sang-chul. The message, “Thank you for not forgetting Yoo Sang-chul,” went viral in Japan. However, it seems that there was also an unexpected political message included.
