Chuncheon, Gangwon Province, is one step closer to hosting the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) headquarters. Recently, the Chuncheon City Council passed a motion for a transfer agreement to host the WTF headquarters after a series of twists and turns, gaining momentum. The WTF headquarters project will be built on a four-story, 3,600-square-meter site in Songam Sports Town and is planned to begin construction next year and be completed in 2026.The project cost is about 19 billion won, and securing national and provincial funding is a challenge. Earlier, the city council’s standing committee amended the motion to change the term 토토 of the agreement from 50 years to 30 years, and then adjusted the five-year automatic agreement to a renewal agreement.
