The promotional posters for the FIFA U-20 World Cup Korea Republic 2017, the first-ever U-20 World Cup to be held in Korea, were released on Thursday.
The LOC (Local Organising Committee) of FIFA unveiled two types of poster for the tournament, which kicks off on 20 May next year. They come with a dark blue background from the Official Look of the tournament and a pattern from the Official Look on a white background respectively.
According to LOC, the dark blue-coloured poster looks to evoke dynamic energy and a longing for victory by the uprising ball along with silhouettes of players and fans.
The white-coloured poster opts for a clean approach, supported by Korean traditional designs and patterns from the Official Look.
The unveiled posters will be distributed to the six host cities, and major locations around the country, along with related organisations in Korea to publicise the tournament to the public.
Meanwhile, FIFA U-20 World Cup Korea Republic 2017 Local Organising Committee (LOC) is set to begin the search for volunteers for next year’s tournament.
The LOC will launch the recruitment programme on 1 November ahead of the FIFA U-20 World Cup’s first trip to Korea Republic.
Details on the volunteer programme were released through the LOC’s website with successful volunteers eventually being assigned to LOC headquarters and the six host cities of Incheon, Suwon, Cheonan, Daejeon, Jeonju and Jeju.
The 12 categories of the volunteer programme are Competitions Operation, Medical Services, Accreditation, Media, Marketing, Guest Management & Translation, Transportation, General Service, Spectators Seats, Environment, Traffic Control, and Airport.
LOC Chairman Chung Monggyu asked members of the public of all ages to engage in the volunteer programme, saying: “I hope the programme will leave the legacy of a new volunteer culture thanks to the tournament. The public expects the tournament to reflect the Korean fervour for football and becomes a nationwide festival, felt across the whole nation, just as the 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan did.”
