Winter Games 2018: Key Venues
Set around the Alpensia resort, home to the famous Dragon Valley Ski area, the 2018 Winter Games will be the first athletics tournament on the Kopeninsulaisula since 1988. Being a nation obsessed with the latest technology and infrastructure, organisers have set about creating some fantastic arenas.
The pentagon-shaped Main Stadium looks particularly special with the famous ring to be displayed high above the arena. The fact the stadium does not have a roof will also add a wintery feel to the famous ceremonies. Authorities are also building an entirely new hockey centre that will host 6,000 people for hopefully some more breathtaking ice-hockey matches like the ones Sochi's audiences witnessed.
The Jeongseon Alpine Centre, set in the beautiful backdrop of the Gariwang mountain, will also play host to the high-speed events such as the Downhill, Slalom and giant slalom. Tempted? Make sure you regularly check StubHub for Winter Games 2018 tickets!
