Seoul World Cup Stadium

Seoul World Cup Stadium, which is shaped like a traditional Korean kite and a yellow sailboat, was built as the largest football stadium in the East that can accommodate about 66,000 people. The stadium, where the entire audience united into one and cheered players together during the 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan, was chosen as one of the ten most beautiful football stadiums in the world by UK’s global football magazine World Soccer. Other facilities inside the stadium such as multiplex cinema, large discount store, shopping mall, sports center, restaurants and wedding hall are frequented by citizens, making it a popular attraction in Mapo-gu.
