Book made in North Korea, 1984. It is about the Kim Il Sung stadium and very rich in pictures. The book is written in English and French.
The Kim Il-sung Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium located in Pyongyang, the capital city of North Korea.
The stadium is used primarily for association football matches. Kim Il-sung Stadium was originally named the Girimri Stadium in 1926. This stadium held the annual Kyung-Pyong Football Match between Kyungsung FC and Pyongyang FC during the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.
After the division of Korea, it was used as a venue for speeches by politicians. On 14 October 1945, it was the site of Kim Il-sung’s victory speech after the liberation of Pyongyang, called “Every Effort for the Building of a New Democratic Korea.”
Most of the stadium was destroyed during the 1950-1953 Korean War, mostly by U.S. aerial bombing of the capital city during those years. Rebuilt in 1969, it was then called Moranbong Stadium, but in April 1982 it was renovated and renamed in honour of Kim Il-sung. It is used mainly for football matches, and until the 1990s hosted the mass games (now held in Rungnado May Day Stadium).
