Date Apr 18, 2024


The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (Minister YU In Chon, MCST) will host the 62nd Sports Week from April 21 (Sun) to April 27 (Sat) in collaboration with government ministries, local governments, the Korea Sports Promotion Foundation (KSPO), and the Korean Sport & Olympic Committee (KSOC).

This year’s Sports Week, themed “Show Us Your Sport!,” aims to highlight the importance of physical activity in enhancing national health and fitness and establishing regular exercise as a daily habit. Notably, sports celebrities will participate to actively promote the importance of sports activities. Citizens are encouraged to post their sports activities on social networks using the hashtags #SportsWeek and #ShowUsYourSport. Contributions from this campaign will be donated to support the underprivileged, thereby underlining the value of exercise and sharing.


“2024 Korea Sports For All Festival,” Charity-Linked Running Event Held; Support for Game Viewing Tickets; Sports Activity Incentives Provided During Sports Week


Various sports competitions will take place nationwide, alongside events such as professional sports viewing support, national physical fitness assessments, and experiential sports events.

The 2024 Korea Sports For All Festival, a nationwide tournament for amateur sports enthusiasts, is scheduled in Ulsan Metropolitan City from April 25 to April 28. The event will feature 41 sports, with approximately 20,000 athletes and officials participating. In addition, 17 provinces and cities across the country will organize local sports competitions, allowing community residents to enjoy various sports activities together.

Furthermore, on April 21 (Sun) at 10:00 a.m., the Celebrating 2024 Sports Week, Spring Into Stride! charity-linked running event, featuring singer Sean among others, will take place at the Peace Plaza in Seoul Olympic Park. A portion of the registration fees will supplement the KSPO’s donations and support the sports disadvantaged. Additional events include the National Fitness 100 health assessment experience, one-day fitness courses led by content creators (YouTubers), blood sugar level testing, and a health cookies-making class. Other activities will feature a bicycle participation campaign, the inaugural National Fitness King Contest, and sports equipment discount sales at Interpark, DOOTA Mall, and Hyundai City Outlets Dongdaemun.

From the start of Sports Week for about four weeks (April 21 to May 18), MCST will provide universal sports welfare opportunities by supporting sports viewing for the disadvantaged during the Korean Pro Soccer (K1 and K2 Leagues) and Korean Professional Baseball (KBO) games. The ticket support for viewing these games is targeted at users of Sports Course Vouchers and Disabled Sports Course Vouchers, with applications processed. More details can be found on the websites for Sports Course Voucher ( and Disabled Sports Course Voucher (

MCST is also running a Sports Activity Incentive program, which awards up to 50,000 points annually per person. These points are earned by measuring fitness at one of the 75 National Fitness Award Centers nationwide, using public sports facilities and clubs (1,055 facilities as of April 2024), and participating in special events during Sports Week. These points can be redeemed as cash for expenses such as sports facility fees, equipment purchases, and services at pharmacies and hospitals. The Ministry plans to promote these benefits during Sports Week to enable citizens to enjoy more advantages.

A policy officer from the Ministry stated, “With the arrival of spring and Sports Week, we hope that people will actively participate in sports activities, leading to healthier and happier lives."
