Professional basketball Carrot, delayed payment of team salaries this time

Professional basketball Goyang Carrot failed to pay the team’s salary on time this time.

An official from the Carrot club said on the 6th, “We decided to pay the salary that was paid on the 5th of every month on the 13th this month after seeking the players’ understanding.”

The salaries of not only the coaching staff and players, but also the secretariat staff and support staff have all been delayed.

This isn’t the first time there has been noise about Carrot’s management.

Carrot is a club founded by taking over the Goyang Orion professional basketball team after the 2021-2022 season.

The club is operated by Day One Sports, a corporation whose parent company is Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering & Construction. The name of the club became Carrot when Day One Sports attracted Carrot Insurance as a naming sponsor.

‘Basketball President’ Heo Jae, former national team coach, is co-CEO.

Carrot has not been smooth since the founding of the club.

In June of last year, approval was withheld once due to insufficiency of materials such as funds, sponsors, and operation plans submitted in the examination of new member companies.

There was also a problem with the subscription fee payment. Carrot originally decided to pay 500 million won out of a total of 1.5 billion won in special membership fees in the form of subscription fees by October 7 last year, but failed to meet the deadline.메이저놀이터

In the end, he paid 500 million won only after receiving an ultimatum from the KBL board of directors that he might not be allowed to participate in the regular league.

While Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering & Construction is suffering from financial difficulties such as overdue wages for executives and employees and delays in subcontract payments, Chairman Kim Yong-bin voluntarily resigned from the positions of chairman of the Korea Curling Federation and director of the Korea Sports Association, citing deterioration in management, raising concerns that the spark may be sparking into professional basketball.

In this situation, as the payment of salaries was delayed, voices of concern grew as to whether the club could operate normally.

It is known that Carrot promised to pay Orion by the end of this month because he had not yet paid the club acquisition price in full.

KBL is also closely monitoring the situation. “We are carefully watching the current situation,” said Kim Gwang, secretary-general of KBL.
