Korean revolution in Tasmanian football?

There seems to be a Korean revolution occurring in Tasmanian football.

First, there was the visit by a Korean junior team for six games against Tasmanian opponents.

Then there were the plans to establish a Korean international coaching school in Tasmania.

The Korean coach has already moved to Tasmania with his family and is living in Kingston.

We await developments in regard to the school, but plenty of Koreans are in training here already.

On Sunday, two practice games involving Korean players were played at the University of Tasmania ground near Sandy Bay Road.

I wonder if they will enter teams in any FFT competition?

It’s all a bit reminiscent of the Malaysian Tigers club, which was active here in the 1960s. They also had a reserve side called Harimau.

We also await a reciprocal visit by a Tasmanian junior side to Korea soon.
