You know those times when all you want is a place to play soccer while betting on horses? Too often, those places are not readily available. Fortunately, Seoul has you covered. The Koreans had enough sense to put a soccer field in the infield of Seoul's horse track. Now, you can play soccer to your hearts content while waiting between races.

Surface

Grass. However, it is patchy in parts. The field doubles as a venue for special events at the horse track. It has a tendency to take a beating.

Pros

  • Betting on horses!
  • Betting on winning horses!
  • Making money while playing soccer!

Cons

  • Playing soccer on a poorly maintained soccer field!
  • Betting on losing horses!
  • Losing money while playing soccer!

Extra Information

Seriously, do not come to Seoul Racecourse looking to play a serious game of soccer. There is a field with goals, but the grass is not in great condition. Come only if you are wanting to play around with friends in between betting on horses.
