OK Financial Group’s Shotman Volleyball Team, which started as the 7th men’s professional volleyball team, has already celebrated its 10th anniversary.
OK Financial Group held a 10th anniversary celebration event in the home opening match against Korea Electric Power Corporation in the 2023-24 season Dodram V-League men’s division held at Ansan Sangnoksu Gymnasium on the 20th.카지노사이트
OK Financial Group established itself as the 7th men’s team in 2013 under the team name Rush & Cash.
OK, which used Ansan Sangnoksu Gymnasium as its home stadium, ranked 6th in its debut season, but surprised many by winning the championship in its second season.
At that time, the ‘monster’ Robert Randy Simon (registered name) was on the rise, and the native trio of Song Myeong-geun, Song Hee-chae, and Lee Min-gyu added their strength. With the full support of owner Choi Yoon (Chairman of OK Financial Group), OK Savings Bank at the time rose to the top for two consecutive seasons and brought about a change in the V-League landscape.
There were ups and downs after that. After coach Kim Se-jin stepped down, coach Seok Jin-wook, who was the head coach, took over the baton and started spring volleyball, but it was somewhat far from the top level.
Ahead of this season, OK Financial Group, led by coach Ogino Masaji (Japan), the first foreign head coach, smiled as it experienced its first win in the Gumi KOVO Cup.
On this day, OK celebrated its 10th anniversary and provided various attractions and events to home fans. Before the game, commemorative rice cakes engraved with the 10th anniversary emblem were distributed to home fans who visited the stadium, and an Oxford block figure featuring Coach Ogino was made and given away.
At the 10th anniversary cake cutting ceremony held after the first set, team owner Choi Yoon had a bright expression and a special emotion as he looked back on the past 10 years.

Team owner Choi said, “The volleyball team has already celebrated its 10th anniversary since its founding. There have been many good memories along the way. The OK Financial Group volleyball team has undergone major changes in celebration of its 10th anniversary, and this is a team that will develop to the next level under the wave of change.” “I hope this happens,” he said.
There were also congratulatory messages from welcome people that day.
Simon, who was the protagonist of the OK championship story, received a lot of applause by saying in a video, “I sincerely congratulate the OK Financial Group volleyball team on its 10th anniversary,” and “I will always be with OK in my heart.”
In addition, golf player Se-ri Pak, former coach Sun Dong-yeol, comedians Jo Se-ho, Nam Hee-seok and Kim Jun-ho, and OK Financial Group’s Shotman rugby team coach Oh Young-gil also delivered congratulatory messages.
Meanwhile, in today’s game, OK Financial Group defeated Korea Electric Power Corporation with a set score of 3-1 and won its first win in its home opener.
