February women’s soccer Olympic preliminaries will also be held at Kim Il-sung Stadium
North Korea will be playing a national soccer match at home for the first time in four years.
According to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) website on the 31st,
the match between North Korea and Japan in the 2026 North and Central America World Cup Asian region second qualifying round
scheduled to be held on March 26 will be held at Kim Il-sung Stadium in Pyongyang.

Japanese media, including Nikkan Sports and Sports Hochi, also reported,
“In the World Cup 2nd qualifying round schedule updated by AFC on the 30th,
the venue for the match on March 26 was set at Kim Il-sung Stadium.”
Considering that the match between Syria and Myanmar scheduled to be held on the same day (Syria home),
the match between North Korea and Syria scheduled for June 6th (North Korea home) have not yet been specified,
the location or time has not yet been specified,
so the match on March 26 will be held in Pyongyang. It appears to have been confirmed.
If this game is actually held at Kim Il-sung Stadium,
North Korea will be playing a home international match for the first time in four years.
North Korea has not held a home international match since playing the 2022 Qatar World Cup Asian second qualifying match against South Korea at Kim Il-sung Stadium on October 15, 2019.
During the last match against South Korea, North Korea vacated Kim Il-sung Stadium,
which can accommodate over 40,000 people,
without prior notice and held the game without spectators.
Not only was the game not broadcast live, but the local internet conditions were also poor,
making it a ‘blink’ unsuitable for the 21st century. ‘Gyeonggi’ caused controversy.

Afterwards, North Korea, which played consecutive away games against Turkmenistan and Lebanon in November 2019,
declared abstention in the aftermath of the 2020 novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19) pandemic and did not appear on the international stage for a while.

when national teams of each age group participated,
the A national team also returned through this North and Central America World Cup qualifier.
The first leg of the World Cup 2nd qualifying round against Syria on November 16 last year was designated as a home game,
but North Korea, which was played in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, a third country,
won 6-1 in the second game away to Myanmar on November 21,
taking 3 points, ahead of Japan (points). 6), they are ranked 2nd in Group B.
North Korea and Japan are scheduled to play the third match at the Tokyo National Stadium on March 21st and then move to Pyongyang for a ‘return match’,
so they will play two consecutive matches in March only.
Meanwhile, prior to the North and Central America World Cup qualifiers,
North Korea is also scheduled to play the 2024 Paris Olympics women’s soccer qualifier against Japan next month,
it was announced on the AFC website that the first home game in the home and away format will be held at Kim Il-sung Stadium on February 24.
