Park Eun-sun, one of the most prominent strikers in South Korea’s women’s soccer team, has retired from active play.

Park’s retirement ceremony was held in front of the home fans at halftime of the third round of the 2024 WK League between Suwon FC Wimin and Seoul City Hall at the Seoul World Cup Stadium Bojang-gu in Mapo-gu, Seoul on Friday.

Born in 1986, Park Eun-sun was a fixture in 스포츠토토 South Korean women’s soccer.

She made her first appearance at the 2003 World Cup in the United States at the age of 16 years and nine months while still in high school. With her 6-foot-2 frame and strong physique, she was quickly touted as the future of Korean women’s soccer.

Until Casey Eugene Fair (Angel City) made her debut at the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia-New Zealand 2023 at the age of 16 years and 1 month last year, Park held the record for the youngest South Korean woman to play in a World Cup.

Prior to this season, Park had hoped to re-sign with the Seoul Metropolitan Government, the team she played for last season, but was denied. She had hoped to retire with the club where she first played in the WK League, and where she played through her prime and into her twilight years.
