Korean national football team coach Jurgen Klinsmann carefully examines Doha. It is for the selection of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup base camp.
Director Klinsman will attend the draw ceremony for the tournament held at the Katara Opera House in Doha, Qatar, on the 11th at 8:00 pm (hereafter Korean time).
Coach Klinsman arrived in Doha in advance to participate as a TSG member at the 2022 Qatar World Cup Post Leader Coaching Forum on the 7th, the day before the draw ceremony. Director Klinsman, who visited the site earlier, is diligently looking for a base campsite.
The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) listed about 32 hotels for the base camp of this tournament and provided them to participating teams from 24 countries. Each hotel is linked to an official training ground nearby.
During the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, which was held in the same place in November last year, Korea used the Le Méridien City Center Hotel and Al Egla Training Center in downtown Doha as accommodations and training grounds, respectively. The distance between the lodging and the hotel is about 10km, and it took about 12 minutes by car.
In addition, all three of Korea’s group stage matches were held at one nearby Education City Stadium, so the movement of the lodging, training ground, and stadium was good.
At the time, Korea settled in the Le Meridien City Center Hotel and achieved the result of advancing to the round of 16 for the first time in 12 years. The hotel was also named as the official accommodation for this Asian Cup. Klinsmann can also use this accommodation.
In addition, Education City Stadium, where Bentoho played, is one of the eight stadiums that will host this tournament. Through the group lottery, not only the matchup, but also the date and venue for the match are confirmed. If Education City Stadium is selected as the venue for the match in Korea, it is worth considering a similar route to the World Cup.
