Busan Transportation Corporation Football Club vs Ulsan Dolphins
Friday 30th March 2012, 7pm kick off
Entrance, as always, is FREE.
The magnificent Busan Transportation Corporation Football Club host 2011 National League champions and local neighbours Ulsan Dolphins.
The Transport have had an indifferent start to their 2012 campaign. A 0-0 draw away at Mokpo and a rain soaked 1-1 draw at home to Yongin. Coach Park Sang In will be looking wheels in motion in what will be a tough game for the Transport.
Ulsan Dolphins currently lie third and unbeaten in the National League. A tie with 2011's runners up Goyang and a home win against Gangneung have earnt them 4pts so far this this year.
A home local derby not to be missed for the dolphin unfriendly Transport!
*** 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.
