The rule is to monitor the situation until 30 minutes after the start of the game. However, on the 22nd, the Jamsil game was rained out at 6:20, 20 minutes after the start time. There were sighs of disappointment from the stands.

On the 22nd, the 10th game of the season between No. 1 LG and No. 2 SSG at Jamsil Stadium was cancelled due to rain. The supervisor of the game in Jamsil was Kim Yong-hee, but it was the referees who made the decision to cancel the game. According to the rules, the referees decide whether or not to cancel a game after it has started, but since the game was scheduled to be played at 6 o’clock, the decision to cancel was given to the referees.

The starting lineup of the home team, LG, was being announced on the scoreboard just before 6 o’clock, but suddenly the rain intensified and the stewards laid down tarps. The start of the game was delayed for 20 minutes, and at 6:20, a rain cancellation appeared on the scoreboard.

Looking back at previous cases and regulations, there is a question mark. Once a game is underway, a minimum of 30 minutes is required for a rain cancellation decision. They have 30 minutes to assess the weather conditions before deciding whether to cancel. On this day, however, it took only 20 minutes to make the decision to cancel.

The reason was as follows “We were about to start the game and we were preparing for the game, and at that moment, the decision to cancel the rain was transferred from the supervisor to the referees,” Heo explained in a phone conversation with Sports Seoul.

He continued, “The decision to cancel the rain after 20 minutes was made because the game had not yet started. If the game had started, we would have to wait at least 30 minutes. But we waited without starting the game. When I looked at the weather forecast, it was forecast to rain until 9pm. The clouds kept coming, so I was informed by the Jamsil referees that the game was cancelled.”

The crowd left their seats full of disappointment, which the players made up for. LG’s Moon Sung-joo, Moon Bo-kyung, Lee Ju-hyung, and Song Chan-ui took the field side by side and performed a sliding ceremony. At the end, Austin Dean came out and joined the ceremony. The crowd responded by chanting for Austin.먹튀검증
