Busan Transportation Corporation Football Club vs Goyang Kookmin Bank
Friday 4th May, 7pm kick off
Entrance, as always, is free.
This is the game of the round, people; 3rd v 1st. Goyang are running away with things at the moment at the top of the table, but we're also flying this season, despite a slight hiccup losing away at Suwon on Wednesday. And now we're back on our manor again, so let's cheer the boys back to winning ways! Avanti Busan!
*** New folks ***
Welcome! Busan Transport are a semi-professional team who play in the National League, the second tier of Korean football. They play smart football and have a never-say-die attitude which often results in some great entertainment. Entrance for all of their games are FREE, and you are welcome to bring in as much food and alcohol as you can carry. The club have made our expat following very welcome, appointing one of our crew as "Club Ambassador" with his own cardboard cut-out, as well as lifts home on the team bus from away games, and even dinner with the team on the way! We have a core of regulars who like to make some noise with the aid of megaphones, vuvuzelas and drums, not to mention the special assistance from the drunk businessmen with their boxes full of soju!
Busan Transport play at the Gudeok Stadium, one of the venues for the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games and is the spiritual home of football in Busan. With a beautiful backdrop of the Gyeongnam mountains to the east, it is THE place to watch football in the city.
Directions to stadium are as follows:
Take Line 1 to Dongdaesin (stop 108). Come out of Exit 2, follow the direction of the staircase and walk up the street for about 5 min. "You can't miss it".
Here is a map to clarify:
Please note: There is no food or drink available to purchase inside the stadium, however, there are plenty of options on the walk between the subway and the stadium.
