Day One Sports, the operator of professional basketball Goyang Carrot, is experiencing difficulties in running the club as its parent company, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering & Construction, is in financial difficulties.

Carrot is a team that was re-established by taking over the Goyang Orion basketball team after the 2021-22 season.
An official from Day One Sports said through Ilgan Sports, “Since the end of last year, we have been negotiating after seeking a new acquisition company to serve as the parent company.

Day One Sports had difficulties operating the Carrot basketball team as its parent company, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, suffered from financial difficulties. This is because it has become difficult to support the basketball team as Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering & Construction entered court receivership. Day One Sports delayed the payment of salaries to players and secretariat staff in February following January. An official from Day One Sports said, “The 5th of every month is the pay day, but it will be done on the 10th.”
The fears seem to be becoming reality. Previously, Kim Yong-bin, chairman of Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering and Construction, resigned from the chairmanship of the Korea Curling Federation and the directorship of the Korea Sports Association for the reason of concentrating on management. In the aftermath, it has been pointed out that the operation of the Carrot club is also sparked. In the end, Carrot was in a position to change its parent company in one season. A KBL official said, “We are closely monitoring the situation. We will respond in principle according to the situation.”
