Groundhopper's guide to..... Suwon Sports Complex
Suwon FC earned a promotion to K League 1 in late 2020, which has come with the added bonus of enjoying considerable bragging rights over their relegation-threatened neighbors Suwon Samsung Bluewings at that time. The club is based in the Suwon Sports Complex and, with the Bluewings, forms part of the only city derby in the top flight this season. This is our short guide to their home ground.
Suwon Sports Complex is home to several professional clubs in Korea. Suwon FC plays from the 11,800-capacity multi-use Suwon Stadium built over 40 years ago. Next door, Suwon Baseball Stadium is the home field of 2021 Korean baseball champions, KT Wiz. Finally, the much older Suwon Gymnasium hosts a men's and women's volleyball team.
