Training camp in Thailand kicks off today with Choi Tae-woong and Park Ki-won set to meet the Thai national team
Changes have been made. The Hyundai Capital men’s professional volleyball team has officially announced its overseas training schedule. Hyundai Capital announced on Thursday that the team will hold an overseas training camp in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand from June 6 to 12 to prepare for the 2023-24 V-League season.
The team recently held a training camp in Japan, but this year they have changed the location. Supported by the Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) and the Thai Volleyball Association (TVA), the team will play two exhibition matches against the Thailand Men’s National Team and one against Nakhon Ratchasima Volleyball Club, which won the Thai League title last season and has five players on the national team.

The Thailand men’s national volleyball team won the 2023 AVC Challenger Cup in Taipei, Taiwan, in July. Park Ki-won, former head coach of LIG Insurance (now KB Insurance) and Korean Air, is at the helm.
The team is known for its potent offense, led by Anurak Panram, who was named Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the 2023 AVC Challenger Cup, Anuk Promchan, who was named Best Outside Hitter, and opposite spiker Napadet Vinjidi.

HMC head coach Choi Tae-woong and Park will be reunited for the first time since they faced each other in the V-League. When Park was the head coach of Korean Air, they met in the championship match for three consecutive seasons.
Choi won the championship twice and Park once.
“It’s a great opportunity to have a trial against the AVC Cup winners, the Thai national team and Thai club teams,” Choi said in a statement ahead of the training camp. “We will make it an opportunity for the players to gain experience by playing against overseas teams, and at the same time, it will be a time for them to feel a lot of things.”
“We are grateful to the AVC, TVA and Nakhon Ratchasima Province for their cooperation in allowing us to hold the training camp in Thailand, and we plan to support the players as much as possible to make it a useful time for their preparation for the upcoming season.”
