The path to the stadium

While the K-League doesn’t quite have the quality of the J-league, or the money of the nouveau-riche Chinese league, I think it’s still safe to say that it is the second-best domestic league in Asia. Every year they churn out a few young stars that then make their way to Europe.

Busan I’Park plays in the massive Asiad Stadium (53,000 capacity) in Sajik. It was originally built for the 2002 World Cup and the 2002 Asiad Games track and field competition. Its track around it takes a bit away from the atmosphere, but you can still get some great seats and the crowd isn’t too bad either.

All tickets are for general admission and cost 10000; although if you can find a scalper, you can usually get them for 5000.

Directions to the stadium: Metro line 3 (Brown line) to Sports Complex (NOT SAJIK). Walk straight out exit 9, and you’ll see the stadium straight ahead.
