  • Local Koreans not too keen on world championships?

    It's said that most tickets sold within the host city were obligatory group tickets for public servants and school children, and chain supermarkets use the tickets as a means of sales promotion as well. I think given the unpopularity of our sport in Korea and the strong unlikelihood that the host would ever medal(Göteborg, Edmonton, now Daegu?), it seems quite probable that we are to see many empty stands at the games?

    I'm guessing you'll see the upper stands completely tarped off.

    Harkening back to Seoul '88, where they had "festival seating" (i.e., first come first serve), it was quite easy to sit right on top of whatever field event you wanted to follow (most handy in the dec/hept).

    The one place the Koreans seemed to fill the sections was at the end of the home straight, looking down the homestretch!

      in 2002, for NON KOREA matches, they were giving out tickets too..

      basically brasil and south korea were the only ticket sellers... i could get tickets for any other match, the morning of the match
