Kim Il-sung Stadium

Gheorghe Gainariu
Kim Il-sung Stadium is a large stadium located in Pyongyang, the capital of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Originally Kirim Stadium, a baseball field built during the Japanese occupation, it was the site of Kim Il-sung's first speech after returning from exile in 1945. Rebuilt in 1969, it was then called Moranbong Stadium, but in 1982 it was renovated and renamed in honor of Kim Il-sung. The stadium's capacity is 50,000, though there have been crowds of over 100,000.[2] It is used mainly for football matches, and the yearly Mass Games. It is not to be confused with the larger Rungrado May Day Stadium.
