K League football club Gangwon are moving out of the Olympic Ski Jumping Centre in Pyeongchang to a new ground, it has been announced.
The club, who were founded and joined South Korea's professional league in 2008, have been playing in the stadium at the Alpensia Resort since last year.
The ground is unique in world football as it is the only one overshadowed by two huge ski jumps, the bases of which reach the edge of the turf just behind the goal.
But since the venue is reserved for the Winter Olympics, due to start next year on February 9, Gangwon have been forced to find a new home for next season.
For next season, the club will play at Songam Stadium in Chuncheon, also a city in Gangwon Province, located some 85 kilometers east of Seoul.
"We have reached an agreement with Gangwon on using the Stadium," a spokesman told South Korean news agency Yonhap.
"Songam Stadium currently has no problem hosting K League matches."
Gangwon previously used Gangneung Stadium in Gangneung as their home ground but after earning a promotion back to the top-flight K League Classic this season they have been playing at the Ski Jumping Centre.
Gangwon hope their new home stadium to bring more fans to their matches.
For the first half of this season, the club only averaged 1,335 fans per match, the lowest number among the K League Classic clubs, since Pyeongchang is a relatively small county and has accessibility issues for those coming from Seoul metropolitan areas.
Gangwon may start using Songam Stadium as early as next month since the Olympic Ski Jumping Centre needs to be prepared for Pyeongchang 2018.
