A grassed football field is built in the compound of the Kim Chaek University of Technology.
Encouraged by the Party’s policy to make the country a sports power, too, officials, teaching staff and students started dressing grass on the earthen soccer field since last August.
An emulation drive was launched among faculties to speed up the project. In a short span of time seed was sown in the soccer field of 8000 square meters. As soon as green sprouts began shooting out, they took a good care of the grassed field.
Last Sept. 27, the day of the University’s founding anniversary, the first football game was held in the grassed playground.
