People in Seoul are expected to take to the streets over the weekend to cheer on the South Korean men's football team as it looks to secure its first-ever FIFA U-20 World Cup championship this upcoming Sunday.

Several districts in the city are organizing spectator events. Seocho District in southern Seoul said on Friday that it will host a street cheering event right outside Gangnam subway station for the U-20 World Cup final from 10 p.m. on Saturday.

Participants can follow the game live, as a large screen will be setup at the event.

The final between South Korea and Ukraine will begin in Lodz, Poland at 1 a.m. Sunday Korea time.   

The South Korean men's U-20 football team beat Ecuador 1-0 in the semifinals earlier this week, and is now one win away from becoming the first men's national team to win a FIFA championship.

Team Korea is 5-1 overall in the tournament, and has knocked off challenging opponents such as Argentina, Senegal and Japan.
