Daejeon World Cup Stadium

Located in the Yoosung neighbourhood of western Daejeon, the Daejeon World Cup Stadium holds up to 39,654 spectators. It hosted matches at the 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan™ a year after its construction in 2001 and famously witnessed striker Ahn Junghwan scoring the golden goal that eliminated Italy and sent Korea Republic into the quarter-finals. More recently, supporters of its resident club, Daejeon Citizen FC, have nicknamed it “The Purple Arena.”
