K-League - Daegu - Daegu Stadium

Postby eujin » Tue Nov 03, 2009 3:10 am

Daegu FC

City: Daegu
Stadiums: Daegu Stadium (Daegu World Cup Stadium)/Daegu Citizens Stadium
Capacities: 65,857/19,467
Formed: 2002
Division: K-League
Honours: ROKfootball relegated in 2009
Website: http://www.daegufc.co.kr/

How To Get There

The Daegu World Cup Stadium is quite a distance to the east of the city. The nearest metro station is Daegu Grand Park on Line Two. The stadium is about 20 minutes walk from there. On matchdays (2009) there is a free shuttle bus from this station to the stadium that runs from two hours before kick-off to one hour after the final whistle.

Daegu Citizens Stadium is right next to the Samsung Lions Baseball stadium and about 10 minutes walk from Daegu Station. Mugungwha and Saemaul trains stop at Daegu Station, but the KTX usually only stops at Dongdaegu Station and from there one must take another train or the metro. The following city buses might also work; 202, 202-1, 349, 414, 414-1, 704, 708, 730 and 836.

Tickets

Most of the home games are played at the Daegu Stadium, which is the large World Cup stadium on the outskirts of town. The stadium is partially roofed but there is access to all parts. The home fans gather behind the North goal.

There is virtually no roof at Daegu Citizens Stadium, but access to all parts of the ground.

Nearby

There is a small park near the World Cup Stadium that features a sports museum. There is a fairly large fountain outside the Citizens Stadium.

Local Specialities

Daegu is famous for it's textiles ("fashion" in the WC2002 lingo), extremely conservative politics (Park Chung-hee and family in particular) and being the hottest city in Korea (because of the surrounding mountains). Daegu food includes ttaro gukbap, a soup and rice combination dish sometimes with congealed cow's blood and makchang, grilled intestines. The area is also famous for its apples.

In honour of them finishing bottom of the K-League. I have some photos but for now this link will have to do.

and this (you might need to turn the bus-porn filter off for one of the images)

Daegu Citizens Stadium doesn't even appear to have it's own page on Korean wikipedia.They are also possibly the only K-League team with their own lifesize museum exhibit (best photo I could find).

Daegu only appear to play at the citizens stadium near daegu station this season. Does anyone know if any team plays at the world cup stadium anymore? I know the world champ athletics are there sept but fancy seeing football there again. Last time i was there for a football match was turkey 5-3 korea in world cup third place playoff.

Heard last Friday that there's a train station nearer to the Daegu World Cup stadium that the main train station. Was wondering if anyone knew what it was called (assuming the information is not bogus, which it could well be). Anyone know? Ta.

Coming from Busan, Gyeongsan station is nearer (the stadium is really in Gyeongsan except for a technicality), but only the Mugunghwa trains stop there. What are you going to do? Taxi it from there, or warm up for the main event by running it Kip Keino style? I reckon it would be quicker to take KTX to Dongdaegu and then take the metro, might even be cheaper. There might be a bus from Gyeongsan but I don't know.

There's a station on the Gyeongbu line that's even closer, not sure if any trains stop there though (if it's just winning a bet you want) http://ko.wikipedia.org/wiki/%EA%B0%80%EC%B2%9C%EC%97%AD

The nearest metro station is as it says at the top, Daegu Grand Park. It's walkable from there, but there was a free shuttle last time I was there for K-League football. I vaguely remember there were free shuttle buses from Dongdaegu station for the World Cup but we were advised to take the metro and then a free shuttle bus from Grand Park as it was faster. They'll probably do a similar thing for the athletics.

This might be useful for buses during the athletics. http://www.daegu2011.org/do/front/view/news?lang=en&board_id=EN_NB_001&category_id=0&article_id=1408

No, that's perfect! Thanks as always. Looks like Haeundae to Dongdaegu is fine, especially given there appears to be buses direct to the stadium from there too. In fact, I don't know why I'm even trying to research it in advance. If they had a wealth of English speaking helpers outside Cheongdo station earlier this year to help us get the bus to the bull fighting, I suspect that the assistance on offer on every corner in Daegu this weekend will be overkill. To be honest, if I don't get escorted onto a direct bus personally, I will be disappointed!

If it's any use here's my account of going there for the 2012 Daegu v FC Seoul game;

http://trailofthelionking.com/2012/03/15/daegu-v-fc-seoul-sunday-march-4th-2012-3pm/

And this one is from when I went to the Civil Stadium in 2010. I'd only been here for three weeks then. I took fewer photos in those days.

It just seems so wrong to me daeguowl. I googled Salty Caramella and it seems to be quite popular, especially in America, but I just took that as further evidence that it was a sordid affair to be avoided.

I suppose that having eaten silkworms and still wriggling squid legs then I should really be prepared to give it a try.
