Description of Seoul World Cup Stadium

Seoul World Cup Stadium is shaped like a traditional Korean kite, and seen from above, it looks as if a rectangular shield is being flown like a kite. The shape of the stadium represents flight towards victory, and it combines the hopes of the World Cup games and spirit and traditional culture of the Korean people.
The very first impression the stadium gives is that it is very large. It provides over 60,000 seats, and in fact, in terms of area and facility, it is the best in Asia. There are large screens on either side of the stadium for people wanting close-up view of the games, and the grass on the field stays green during winter. Nearby the stadium there are a variety of parks, ideal for leisurely walks. There are also five theme parks around the stadium � Peace Park, Nanjicheon Park, and Noeul Park among them. Thick groves of trees, modern street lights, and magnificent fountains make the parks ideal walking areas in the morning and evening. In the evenings, many in-line skaters come and hang out as well. The stadium is open from 9 to 5 pm, and many interpreters are always on duty.

After the successful completion of the 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan, the Seoul World Cup Stadium has been leading the campaign to promote soccer culture, and is also a frontrunner in hosting various cultural events. Located within the facilities are also places to shop and enjoy cultural activities- providing all visitors with much to see and do. In Seoul, it is rising as a popular tourist spot.
