After winning the 2015 competition, Pohang Steelers won the Boys’ Sports Festival for the first time in nine years, ranking second in 2017 and third in 2022. It is also interesting that Lee Seung-hwan, the current goalkeeper of a professional team, was a member when he won the 2015 competition. This can be said to be a good example of a youth system in which the main players of the youth team become resources for the professional team in the future. Pohang Steelers is expected to continue to provide support for the development of youth players.

“I am very happy to win the title in my first year as a coach. I think the result was good because the club and the school had full support from the beginning of the preparation for the championship,” Kim Seung-min said. “I will continue to work hard to foster players with a sense of mission to match the reputation of Pohang Steelers youth.”
