Join YPT in Seoul as you’ll witness a historic World Cup qualifier between North Korea and South Korea. We will spectate the second match to be held between North and South for the FIFA qualifier as last year’s match ended with a tense 0-0.
YPT is offering more and more tours for Football enthusiasts and we are looking forward to assisting to one more great game involving the DPRK!
The Qatar 2022 World Cup Asian qualifying drew some big names together, we will be heading to Seoul, South Korea to spectate this historic match. It is a great occasion to mingle with the locals and see how fiercely they support their national team.
During the tour we’ll also be visiting Gyeongbokgung Palace, the Korean War Museum and as we like to say in the north.. no visit to Korea is complete without a visit to the DMZ!
Extend your tour to Group B as we take you to Dandong, the border town city of China next to North Korea. We will show you the extensive sights of this city including the Great Wall, sailing down the river that divides North Korea and China, as well as exploring a ghost city built along the border and more.
We’ll then board the train and head to Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea! During our 4 night 5 day stay in Pyongyang we’ll arrange playing a five-a-side game against Pyongyang locals, visiting the Pyongyang International Football School to chat with students who are hopeful of a career in football and observe a training session, and top it all off by taking in the Qatar 2022 World Cup Qualifying match between the DPRK and Turkmenistan!
We’ll also have the chance to explore all the must see sights of Pyongyang as well as a visit to the DMZ from the north side ticking off your unique box of doing the DMZ from both North and South!
We can also supply you with an official DPRK football jersey. Please notify us during your booking so we can prepare one for you in Seoul!
