North Korea Played South Korea For World Cup Qualifier In A Completely Empty Stadium
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

So as you know, North Korea has some weird rules about things like sports, life, humanity. When their soccer team played South Korea in a World Cup Qualifier, no one was allowed to watch. So the completely empty stadium looked like this...

It ended in a 0-0. No kidding. No one won anywhere on this one. Per TMZ Sports...

According to international reports ... the South Koreans were forced to leave their cell phones at the South Korean Embassy -- and communication to and from the game was nearly impossible.

As for fans who wanted to follow the match ... their only option to watch it live consisted of brief posts about the match on FIFA and Asian Football Confederation websites.

But, North Korea will reportedly hand over a DVD of the game to South Korea this week so it can broadcast the match to its fans on tape delay at a later date.

Would have been too embarrassing to show the crowd cheering for the South Korea team.

Sort of like a Los Angles Chargers game.
