Description:
Kim Il-sung Stadium is a large stadium located in Pyongyang, the capital of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. It was originally built as the Kirim Stadium in 1926 during the Japanese occupation. After The surrender of Japan in August 1945, it was used as a venue for speeches by politicians, and it was the site of Kim Il-sung's first speech after returning from exile in 1945. Rebuilt in 1969, it was then called Moranbong Stadium, but in 1982 it was renovated and renamed in honor of Kim Il-sung. The stadium's capacity is 70,000. It is used mainly for football matches, and the yearly Mass Games. It is not to be confused with the larger Rungrado May Day Stadium.

The start and finish of the annual Pyongyang Marathon occurs at Kim Il-sung Stadium.
