The establishment of Foundation
The great triumph of the South Korean National Team at the 2002 FIFA World Cup wasn’t gone unnoticed by anybody. The whole world remembers the heroics of the Korean players, which had its influence on the global football society. At the core of that team among with the Taegeuk Warriors was standing Guus Hiddink.
In order to repay for the love Guus Hiddink have received from the whole Korean nation, he established the Guus Hiddink Foundation and started to provide the help to handicapped people by building the futsal Dream Fields all around South Korea. The foundation was established in 2005 with headquarters in Netherlands, and it initiated a lot of various activities directed to helping the people of Korea, especially children, poor and handicapped.
Relive the 2002 FIFA World Cup
Today, in 2015, there are already 12 futsal fields built in South Korea and we plan to further expand our Dream Field project to reach more and more people who need our help.
