The Korean national football team is getting a new state-of-the-art training centre, designed by UNStudio with expert advice from an international team of leading football stadium managers. The new Korean National Football Center, located 85 kilometer south of Seoul in the city of Cheonan-shi, will be a world-class facility incorporating health, science, technology and education to help foster the next generation of Korean football stars. In designing the masterplan for the site, UNStudio gathered an international team of leading football stadium managers, alongside experts in sports science and digital data collection. Henk Markerink, CEO of Amsterdam's Johan Cruijff ArenA, was among the specialists involved, bringing decades of experience in advising sporting projects around the world.

The facility will feature two large stadiums, indoor and outdoor, and over a dozen sports field typologies, as well as a museum, high-end hotel and wellness centre. The focal point of the master plan will be its central plaza, which will give sports fans access to public parts of the training centre, and can host multi-functional events throughout the year. Alongside the national men’s team, the facility will be home to national women’s and youth sides, gathering all of the country’s top footballers in one place.

With technology now a key part of sports medicine and elite training, digital tech will also be widely integrated into the facility, providing trainers with the data they need to be able to create cutting-edge, customised training regimes for the teams and players.

The master plan was selected as the winning design in an international closed competition held in March 2020. Commissioned by the Korean Football Association, the new National Football Center will not only become home to the Korean national teams and their trainers, but also a laboratory for future generations of top league players.
