Open Spaces and Fields

Sogang University is one of South Korea's leading schools of higher learning. It is a fine school located near the exciting hotspot of Sinchon. Near the center of the campus, there is a small open space with an artificial turf surface that is perfect for low-key athletic endeavors.


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.
