Information current as of September 26, 2016

The Scouting Report

Kookmin University offers a great soccer field, or football pitch. It is plenty big and scenic.


Artificial turf. You gotta problem with artificial? Wait...what's that you're drinking? Are you complaining while drinking a 'Vitamin Water'? Don't talk to me about artificial.


  • The soccer field has great lighting.
  • It is very well maintained.
  • It is surrounded by the college campus buildings. It is a perfect place to play if you are seeking to relive your collegiate glory days.
  • It is big enough for multiple activities at one time.


  • Not subway friendly.
  • It gets used. 'Half-field' games are played on some nights. The university uses it for various non-soccer functions. (How dare them!?)
  • Kookmin University always has priority on it. And they pull rank often.

Extra Information

There are toilets nearby available for public use.
