I would guess that parking around the stadium will be fine on the 10th. The game isn't until the 11th. :smt117



gah! :smt090

Just a note as well, kick-off time has been brought forward to 2pm as the game will be live on KBS1.

Am i right in thinking the subway would be the best way to go?

yes, it looks like the stadium is right by 도원역 on the Incheon spur of Line 1.

I spotted that after i posted. On google it's the old stadium, and on Naver it's a building site, but there's a subway on both, so i'm happy. The next question is the ticket situation for away end, will it be an issue for sunday?

No idea. I live a bus ride from the ground and would like to go on Sunday, but am also busy with an assignment so don't want to risk a wasted journey. I doubt the ground will be full, but there is a danger it could be 'sold out' if the organisers give away most of the tickets to sponsors and schools etc due to it being the 'grand open'. If anyone hears for definite that tickets on the day won't be a problem please let us all know! Thanks.

It should be safe for the away side, but I'm expecting half of the city of Incheon to have been given free vouchers. :smt102

We really should edit the title of this thread as the stadium is finished now. Or at least it should be, could still be a work in progress like the Yongam race track... hard hats all round, folks.

I think that with a capacity of around 20,000 they can and will go for a sell out via the free voucher route. I'd guess the Suwon fans traveling on the supporter buses will be fine getting in, but I can't see them giving over too many extra sections to the Suwon fans - rather than allocating one whole stand to the away fans as most clubs do, they're giving over just a couple of corner sections to visiting supporters. They'll probably extend it a bit because Suwon will bring a large number and that's guaranteed bodies through the gate, but most of that yellow section behind the goal is guaranteed to be full of families with freebies.

unless it's cold and raining, in which case it might be the ideal target for the ticketless

Good point, that's the uncovered end that the pointy bits of the roof are aimed at isn't it? I suppose it may be an architecturally wonderous stadium but surely it would have made more sense to cover the entire place? Same with the Suwon WC stadium, it's nice and all with it's bird wings over the main stand but there's enough overhang on either side to cover the two ends behind the goal. It's not as if they couldn't afford the addtional materials. I've had plenty of drenchings there where I've wished that's how they'd built it and gone for practicality over design.

Then again if you follow that line of thinking you end up with soulless flat-pack dumps like St. Mirren Park and Almondvale :|

I've enjoyed a number of very nice under the stars matches from the top deck at Suwon. If its pissing down and you insist on going up there, like the Highlanders were at some point, then you get what you deserve. It's not like the East stand is ever full, or even the lower deck.

Now on the second thoughts, given the number of Koreans who think "it's raining, the football must be cancelled" there might not be such a turnout at Incheon if it's a bit wet. I wonder if your average family would be savvy enough to expect a roof, turn up to find none and then give the tickets away to any passing waeguk, before scurrying home?

Just a heads up everybody -- be careful, the new stadium is on SEOUL subway line 1, NOT Incheon subway line 1.

You want to take the subway that runs through Yongsan, Singil, Sindorim and Guro. If you're coming from Seoul, I'd take the express (which begins at Yongsan), though I'm not sure if Dongwon is on the express. If not, you can transfer one or two stops before.

Whoops, I showed my Seoul centric bias there, :oops:, didn't occur to me that Incheon might have its own line one. :|

I looked it up, Dowon Yeok is not on the express train. If you take the express, you'll need to transfer at Juan (주안) Station.

You all are making me jealous. I'm tempted to go...Seongnam : Sangju won't be as exciting as the new stadium. I can likely go to Incheon 5+ times this year....but Seongnam's match is at the same time. Darn!!
