Outside world cup stadium

This is the impressive stadium built for the world cup in 2002 and is now home to FC Seoul. It can hold about 69,000 people inside it but it is also surrounded by parks, fountains and modern art.
In fact it is so big it even has its own helipad. The mascots of 2002 still proudly surround the stadium in many different poses.
One of the amazing things about this stadium is that it is also a museum (pictured elsewhere), a 5 screen cinema, a massive supermarket, a swimming pool and a gymnasium. When you think that added to this you can also have guided tours of the stadium it is easy to see why it is completely self supporting with no government help. Now if only they had thought of that when they built Wembley.
