Organization Introduction

Lee Jae Myung

We will create the Gyeonggi Suwon World Cup Stadium as a sports & leisure space along with sports, cultural events, and relaxation.

Hello?

First of all, I wish to thank you for visiting our website.

The Gyeonggi Suwon World Cup Stadium Foundation was established by joint investment from Gyeonggi-do and Suwon-si at a ratio of 6 to 4. We are in charge of managing and operating the Suwon World Cup Stadium that held the successful Korea and Japan World Cup in 2002 as well as the Suwon World Cup Sports Center equipped with premium facilities that are generally recognized.

The Suwon World Cup Stadium acts as a Mecca of Korean football, both in name and reality, and has been in the global spotlight with year-round thrilling matches including Suwon Cup International Youth Club Football Championship, Peace Cup, invitational tournaments with famous overseas clubs, and K-league.

Also, the Suwon World Cup Sports Center with a total floor area of 19,000㎡ is where you can enjoy a wide range of sports such as golf, fitness, swimming, squash, aerobics, skin-scuba diving, basketball, badminton including cultural classes, and has become a masterpiece of sports centers, increasing its members and one-day users up to 5,000 and 2,000 respectively.

The permanent stage in the central plaza transformed the Suwon World Cup Stadium to ‘a space where sports and culture converge’ as a variety of cultural events and performances including concerts and song festivals that are presented on the stage allows our visitors to fulfill their cultural needs with pleasure.

Meanwhile, since 2002 Korea and Japan World Cup, the barbed-wire fence surrounded the outskirts of the stadium was removed so that everyone can work out freely or take a comfortable rest at the stadium, the fully opened space for daily exercise. Also, in the evenings, the stadium itself becomes a tourism attraction as lighting equipment for scenery with diverse colors installed on its roof, walls, surrounding trees, and sculpture works create fantastic night views.

In the years to come, all the employees at Gyeonggi Suwon World Cup Stadium Foundation will offer our words to be committed to expand infrastructure to allow for every visitor to improve their physical strength, make good use of free time, and enjoy cultural life. Lastly, we wish you and your home good health and good luck.

Thanks.

Chairman of the Board, Gyeonggi Suwon World Cup Stadium Foundation
