    With e-sports creating a new Korean wave, Seoul City launches a brand-new tourism product: The e-Sports Tour Program.

    Participants will have the opportunity to visit Korea’s largest e-sports standing stadium at the S-Plex Center in Sangam-dong (31, Maebongsan-ro, Mapo-gu) with its Hall of Fame featuring the history of Korean e-sports and its most popular professional gamers, and also attend an actual game within its walls.

    This program will give a free opportunity to 15 foreign tourists per month from May to December, with an English interpreter on the tour to help with communication.

    Applications are accepted on Seoul City’s Hallyu Tourism official website (http://hallyu.visitseoul.net). The final invitees will be selected by taking in account the period of their visit to Seoul, the purpose of their visit, and their motivations to participate in this program.
