On this day, Busan played its home game at Gudeok Stadium due to the preseason friendly match between Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Jeonbuk Hyundai at Busan Asiad Stadium on the 3rd. Due to the unexpected change of venue, Busan won against the last-place team, but the performance left something to be desired. The home game against the Jeonnam Dragons on March 15 will also be held at Gudeok Stadium.
