Busan's temporary stands look pretty good in use.

The temp stands in Busan look like the stands in Washington at RFK for DC United.

Yeah, you're right. I hate DC United though... Just throwin' it out there

Anyways, I'm glad Incheon is making a smaller stadium. I hate seeing stadiums that are 1/4 filled for each and every match.

I was going to voice my opinion against this, just because I like Munhak as a stadium (even though it being empty all the time isn't so cool) but Dowon station is only a few stops from where I live, so that would be nice.

Then again, I'll probably have moved by then...stupid timing!

Noticed this on Sunday when on the way down to the Cheonan K3 game - there's a new football centre pretty much close to completion right next to the subway line going into Cheonan station. Added to the one under construction in Changwon, and one or two elsewhere that I can't quite remember, that's pretty good going.

Oh, and this is supposedly what they're going to do to Seongnam's Tancheon stadium when work starts in September:

Shame they're not doing anything about the view, which is shit from anywhere else in the stadium outside the top tier of the main stand. I suppose you could soon stand on the roof...

Looking at that stadium brings to mind once again the question....

WHY THE FUCK ISN'T KOREA A WORLD POWER HOUSE IN ATHLETICS???

Perhaps it's because hundreds of thousands of people look at artificial running tracks each year but never actually use them.

NZ does better at track and field and we probably haven't built a full scale stadium with running track since the one built for the 1990 commonwealth games which has now sensibly been ripped up and removed so rugby league fans can be close to the action. By all means build them in decent sized cities but for fucks sakes, put them NEXT TO football stadiums and with 5,000 seats not 35,000 seats. They can't be that expensive. I recently noticed a private school in Auckland has just put in a running track with all the hurdling, pole valutling etc bells and whistles and it has about 1,000 wealthy kids attending it.

I would say conservatively that you can shave one or two thousand people off every attendance by the distance they are from the field and lack of atmosphere.

In case of Seongnam, they shave so many. lol

Everybody knows it but officials. There is a law that makes Stadiums under government. It is really shite cause then nobody can improve stadiums without government. Actually, SIFC wanna get a new stadium but officials reject that plan cause 'Every Stadium must constructed for resident's health and wealth' law. f*ck sake.

Moreover, SIFC's board are auld and shite. I heard that from my friends who works for SIFC, financial manager do his job with pencil, not a computer. Gosh!

Well his job consists entirely of writing "ask Reverend Moon for more money" memoranda at periodic intervals so he doesn't really need a computer for that ;)

I'm very glad to see that IUFC is building a park with no track. Games at the Munhak Stadium are painful to watch since you are so far away from the action. All one has to do is look at the recent success of MLS in North America since they've gone to Soccer Specific Stadiums as opposed to parks that are multi-purpose. Soccer Specific Stadiums have far better site lines, and make the game way better to watch.

I dont think the running track is the only reason watching Incheon United is painful. ;-)
