P4U FS, a traditional powerhouse in Korea’s premier amateur middle school futsal tournament, has won the 5vs5 Gatorade Futsal 2023 in Pyeongtaek.
P4U FS, a futsal club with ties to Siheung, held off a late surge by Sanyul FC in the final of the 5vs5 Gatorade Futsal 2023 in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi-do, at The Pitch Pyeongtaek, a state-of-the-art futsal field in Jukbaek-dong, Sosa-gu, Pyeongtaek-si, Gyeonggi-do, to win the title. With this victory, P4U FS reached the final of three consecutive tournaments and took home the trophy twice, following their win in the Siheung Qualifier and runner-up finish at the National Championship this year. For the win, the team received a scholarship of 1 million won and a trophy. Sanyul FC, made up of students from Uiwangbu Gokjung, finished as runners-up in their maiden appearance. The runner-up team, Sanyul FC, and the third-place team, Hero FC, were awarded 500,000 won and 300,000 won in prize money and trophies, respectively. P4U FS captain Baek Seoyoon was named MVP of the tournament. Baek Seoyoon, who scored multiple goals in the final, said, “At the beginning of the tournament, I had a headache and didn’t feel well, so I didn’t play many games. I played a short time in the quarterfinals and semifinals before the final. My teammates played well, which is why I was able to win MVP.” “I’m in middle school, so I can’t play in middle school tournaments anymore, but I hope to participate in an overseas tournament in England next year and win the title with my teammates.”
The Pyeongtaek tournament is a side event of the 5vs5 Gatorade Futsal 2023. The 5vs5 Gatorade Futsal 2023 tournament concluded on May 20 with the national championship after intense qualifying rounds. Held to commemorate the opening of The Pitch Pyeongtaek, the tournament attracted 50 teams, including the best amateur middle school futsal teams from each region and 10 futsal teams from the Pyeongtaek area. Some teams traveled from Cheonan to participate in the Pyeongtaek edition of the 5vs5 Gatorade Futsal. Last year’s H-CUP, which was recognized by middle school and adult futsal players under the name “H-CUP,” shows how much demand there is for 5vs5 Gatorade Futsal. The organizers were forced to ‘set’ 40 teams to ensure a smooth tournament. Sanwool FC Segyo Middle School JS Ancheong Cheonan Oseong FC C FC BABY SNAKES (Group A), Toy FC Hwan Hee-young Offside Hajung FC Keiya FC (Group B), Shinseong FC Goal Hitting Men Cheonan Oseong FS Jangdang Middle School U15 (Group C), Galilee Charis Team SG Charubi Global FC Hamhyeon FC (Group D), Cheonan Oseong FSB One Goal Only FC Daebangdong CF (Group E), Two Goal Hero FC Jeongjae and Friends Toy FC-B Soccer Kick FC (Group F), Daeheung Middle School A Seongnam Middle School Battle Elephant Cheonsung FC (Group G), P4U FS WooSeungCup New Bean FS Enjoyem FC (Group H), and 39 other teams participated. PSC did not participate. The tournament was organized by sports marketing company HNS, with Gatorade as a partner. Sports Chosun is the media partner.
The tournament was held at ‘ThePitch Pyeongtaek’, a state-of-the-art dome futsal field. ‘ThePitch Pyeongtaek’ is characterized by the fact that all three pitches are made up of domes. The players expressed their satisfaction by saying in unison, “It was cool inside the stadium even in the sweltering heat.” The organizer, HNS, said that the temperature difference between the outside and inside of the stadium was 7 degrees. The effectiveness of the dome stadium was fully realized when it rained heavily before the final. 메이저사이트
