"Busan is expected to be the hub city of games and culture by bringing WCG along with G-star," said Nam-Sik Hur, Mayor of Busan Metropolitan City. "We will do our best in welcoming the international delegates for a successful WCG 2011 Grand Final."
The decision marks the return of the WCG to its homeland, where it hosted its first four events, from 2000 to 2003.
