How To Get There

Jeju World Cup Stadium (Seogwipo)

• From the airport take the Airport Limousine Bus bound for Seogwipo (5,000 won). Get off at E-Mart in Shin-Seogwipo (60 minutes). Stadium is behind E-Mart.
• If you are staying in Jeju City take the Seogwipo bound bus at either Jeju Bus Terminal or outside Halla Hospital in Shin-Jeju (3,000 won).
• Taxi from Jeju City to Seogwipo is typically 25,000 won and takes 45 minutes. Ask for Jeju World Cup Gyeong Gi Chang (제주월드컵경기장)


Jeju Sports Complex (Jeju City)

• From the airport take the number 100 bus and get off at the Suburban Bus Terminal (1,000 won, 10 minutes). Stadium is behind the bus terminal. Taxi fare is around 3,000 won, ask for Jeju Chong Hap Un Dong Chang (제주종합운동장).
• From Seogwipo catch a bus bound for Jeju City at Seogwipo bus terminal (3,000 won, 60 minutes). Bus terminates at the bus terminal, 2 minutes walk from the stadium.


Ticket Prices

Buy an orange Jeju United T-Shirt outside the stadium for 5,000 won - this will provide free entry for the entire season. If the away section is gated off and you are cheering for the visitors you can buy a ticket from the ticket office outside both stadiums for 7,000 won.


Beer and Food

• The World Cup Stadium in Seogwipo sells beer, noodles, corn dogs etc at standard Korean prices.
• On match days all you can drink FREE BEER is provided outside the stadium. Sometimes a Hite mascot will walk around the inside of the stadium dishing out free cans too. </p>

Jeju Foreigner Supporters Club

Currently in the process of moving info over from the Facebook group to http://jejuunited.blogspot.com - Includes previews and plans for away trips.

Also keep an eye out for the new English language newspaper "The Jeju Weekly" which will be launched at the start of May and will contain Jeju Utd related news.

And in sad news it appears the free beer tents have come to an end. It was nice whilst they lasted. A can of hite in Seogwipo stadium goes for 2,500won, so not too expensive.

Whenever I go to Cheju I stay in new Cheju city (신제주). It is only about 10 mins max from the airport...lots of motels/hotels there for 40 - 50 000 a night that are good enough.

I can't remember the name of the place we booked last time (useful i know) as the wifey did all the work but it cost 50 a night, was clean and no problems. Looks like there are plenty of places like that.

Here are a couple of suggestions...

Yeah this time of year you should get somewhere decent in the new town for 40 no probs. There are some really cheap places in the older parts of town for 20 or less, but check under the pillow for cockroaches before you sleep!

I see that their upcoming match with Daegu is at the World Cup Stadium. Can anyone confirm whether this is the case for every game now? I'm on holiday next week in Jeju, so was planning on hitting the Ulsan match.

And, incidently, the above supporters blog is now defunct, sadly. As is the facebook page in the OP.

It's actually a little bit astounding to me that Jeju is allowed to play Sunday evening matches (home or away) by the league. Totally ridiculous for the fans of the visiting team.

That's why it took me so long to make it to a game there...it's criminal.
Also the lack of any kind of refreshment kiosk in the away stand can make for a harsh couple of hours for the unwary...make sure you get your alcohol in plastic bottles, no glass, no cans
