The Scouting Report



Sogang University offers a great open field. Although it is mostly used for miniature soccer, it is ideal for a variety of games. Also, it is big enough to accommodate two events simultaneously. There are not many open fields in Seoul, and this one is a gem.

Surface

It is artificial turf and well maintained. Overall, it is a great place to play on.

There is a single line that runs around the perimeter of the field that can be used as a boundary marker. Aside from that and the "Sogang University" lettering, the field is void of any other markings.

Pros

  • It is not humongous, but it is big enough to accommodate multiple activities at once.
  • The lack of structure (lines, goals, etc.) should be treated as a bonus. You can play ultimate frisbee, gaelic football, football, soccer, or even futsal. The possibilities are endless...except for pool sports...it would probably be difficult to play water polo.
  • The field has good lighting.

Cons

  • University students rightfully have priority. Unless you want to pay tuition, step aside.
  • The "foul" territory is quite narrow. There is not much space between the sideline and concrete. Play accordingly.
