Coach Hong Myung-bo’s resourcefulness, players’ efforts, support from the secretariat, and the passionate support of fans added to the team’s position as the number one club.
Now, Ulsan has grown beyond the Ulsan region to become a popular club across the country. The numbers prove it. A total of 18,933 fans filled Ulsan’s tiger den against Daegu. A total of 300,406 people attended the 17 home games this season. On its 40th anniversary, it surpassed 300,000 spectators for the first time in a single season. For the second time since the implementation of the K-League paid audience counting policy, a single home audience of 300,000 was recorded. We are overcoming the limitations of non-metropolitan teams.
Ulsan had 166,114 people visit the stadium last season. It ranked second with 820 fewer people than FC Seoul (166,934). Fans wishing to win the league’s fourth title this season continue to flock to the team.
Ulsan has already broken its own record for the largest number of spectators. Before the game against Daegu on the 29th, the cumulative attendance was 281,473, breaking the record of 254,164 during the 2011 season. 300,000 won was achieved in the Daegu match.
Coach Hong Myung-bo said, “Fans have a great influence on players in good times and bad times. Fans can sometimes be bitter. “After I took office, I told the players, ‘Let’s keep those things in mind and not become lazy,’” he said. “We need to constantly study what the fans think of us. We must do our best for these people. As is the case in the metropolitan area, I feel proud that the number of fans at Munsu Soccer Stadium is increasing. Fans provide greater energy to Ulsan than anything else. “I am always grateful to my fans,” he said with a smile.
