SEOUL — Organizers of the Peace Cup have big ambitions to promote the tournament's brand. After holding the biennial event in South Korea three times, the international club event will be played in Europe in 2009, with Spanish giant Real Madrid as a possible host.
"Real Madrid has been invited to see the Peace Cup," said Alfonso Roberes, Madrid's international marketing director who arrived in Seoul yesterday. "This is a project for us to think about in 2009. The Peace Cup officials came to see us in Spain, and we have been in discussions with the Sunmoon Peace Football Foundation to see whether we can hold the event in Spain."
"We had the chance and we wanted to come, but from a sporting point of view it was impossible because the players were still on holiday," Roberes said.
