For every sports fan showing your support for your team (or nation) is extremely important. One way of doing that is by wearing the teams colors. Here in South Korea we’re luck enough to have World Cup 2014 Supporters Shirts / Jerseys. These are released every world cup and allow fans to show there support for the team without breaking the bank. The shirts are less than half the price of the Nike made shirts / jerseys worn by the players, but are still official merchandise and have the national teams badge. This year the tag line is “We Are The Reds!”
Where? Homeplus as well as other Korean Supermarkets and Department Stores.
Price? ₩17,900 at Homeplus and some of the child versions are cheaper. (as of June 13th it seem as if Homeplus have lowered the prices)
When? Now until the end of the World Cup.
If you’re in South Korea during the world cup make sure to pick one of these up, either to support the team or just as a souvenir.

World Cup Live Events
There are live screening of the games (well at least the 1st game) across the country. Most schools are having events for their students but plenty of people will be filling bars and restaurants for this quadrennial event.
Large screens have been put up at Gwanghwamun Square in Seoul (directions and location here) and a few thousand people are expected to watch the games.
The Hyundai Fan Park should be showing both the final 2 games. It’s located in Gangnam not far from Samsung Station and Coex Mall.
