Korean Sports Teams Canceling Japan Training Schedules

The ongoing trade friction between Korea and Japan has even hit the sports sector.

Since July, seven out of 10 teams in the Korean Basketball League (KBL) that were scheduled to set up offseason camps in Japan all scrapped their plans. They will either train in another country or stay home to prepare for the start of the 2019-2020 season in October.

In the Women’s Korean Basketball League (WKBL), four of the six teams had designs on holding training camps in Japan. Two, Samsung Life Blue Minx and KEB Hana Bank, have canceled their plans. Two others, KB Stars and Woori Bank Wibee, are leaning in the same direction.

An international offseason tournament organized by the WKBL will be held without two Japanese teams from Aug. 24-31.

In volleyball, four out of six women’s pro teams in the V-League have canceled plans to train in Japan.
