It's interesting to look at, but I've not seen a game here yet. The Lotte Outlets are right here, though so if you're already in the neighborhood shopping, pop outside and take a look. Or go see a game here.

If you are into soccer/futball you will enjoy the visit to the World Cop Stadium in Gwangju. The group enjoyed watching a match.

I went here for a football match between Gwangju FC and Pohang Steelers. The stadium is just a normal, average stadium. It has quite good facilities, such as clean toilets and food/drink stalls just outside the tribune.

The World Cup Stadium is a fantastic arena that was a cauldron during the Football World Cup in 2002. Since then it has rarely seen the same attention. Gwangju has only recently formed a K-League football team and with little full time support in a...More
