“In accordance with the Aviation Safety Act and FIFA regulations, drone flights inside and outside the stadium will be strictly prohibited in this match,” the Korea Football Association said after a meeting with FIFA supervisors and match officials on the afternoon of the 15th.
The Seoul World Cup Stadium is a restricted airspace where the use of drones is prohibited in principle under the Aviation Safety Act, and in particular, this match is a World Cup qualifying match and a FIFA-organized match, so FIFA regulations must be followed. Unauthorized drone flights and filming are prohibited as they can seriously disrupt the safety of players and the operation of the game. The KFA and the Mapo Police Department in Seoul also discussed the issue at a meeting on stadium safety and decided to take action.
“Any unauthorized use of drones during matches or infringement of broadcasting copyrights through drone filming will be punishable under relevant laws,” said the KFA and the Mapo Police Department, adding, “We don’t want any soccer fans to suffer innocent damage by flying drones in stadiums out of curiosity.”
