The Korean Tourism Organisation (KTO) has announced that it has been chosen as the preferred destination partner of GB Taekwondo. 

As part of the partnership, the KTO will run a number of initiatives in the coming 12 months. 

The first, at the World Taekwondo Grand Prix in Manchester, which is taking place later this week between 13 and 15 December, will be the launch of a unique sports package that will take holidaymakers to places of sporting interest across Korea. 

'We're looking forward to further promoting Korea and its new purpose-built Taekwondo Park as a tourist destination to an ever growing taekwondo audience in the UK,' commented GB Taekwondo operations director Steve Flynn.

A key event for the KTO in 2014 - which GB Taekwondo will be helping to promote - is the opening of the T1 Stadium, the world's first dedicated taekwondo sports complex.

Ramy Salameh, PR manager of the KTO, said the new facility would allow sports fans to visit the 'home of Taekwondo'.ADNFCR-408-ID-801671696-ADNFCR
