Anyone interested in playing football (soccer) in Seoul?
« on: January 18, 2013, 02:53:35 pm »
Hi everyone, new to the forum so apologies if this is in the wrong place.

I help to run a football team in the Seoul Sunday Soccer league and we are looking for players for the new season starting in March.

This is the league web site (below) and we are the Han River Spitfires.

The Home games are played at samyook university which is very close to Hwandae station on line 6. I live in Mokdong and I find it no trouble. Games usually kick off at 3pm with some earlier kick offs during the winter season.
 
It's 10,000 won a game to cover the pitch fees, referees fee etc and the kit costs 40,000 I think.
 
We have three away games each season that are outside of Seoul but not more than an hour away. Most of the lads travel to each game by subway. There are 14 games in a season and we have two seasons in a calendar year. we break for the summer when it's too hot and in the winter when it's too cold.
 
There are some good teams in the league so competition is fairly healthy. Most of the players are british or american though so it can be a lot more phsyical then some players are used to. I'm british myself. The standard of refeering can vary but the guys do a good job which most people wouldn't want to do so we can't complain.
 
The first game of the season is the first weekend of March and we have a facebook group you can check out here.

You'd be welcome to come along to the first game and check it out.

Sounds great! I'm looking to play some regular football when I move to Seoul next month for a good chunk of the year. Is there anything you need me to do/send?

Hi Hyun-Gun, great to hear from you.

At this point there is nothing to do. when you get here we can register you with the league and sort a kit out for you.

I'll drop you a message with my contact details in so we can stay in touch. What position do you play?
