Bucheon SK was the former name of South Korean football club Jeju United, which was based in Bucheon from 1995 to 2005, prior to its relocation to Jeju at the start of the 2006 season.


A founding member of the K-League in 1983, the team originally called "Yukong Elephants" has lifted the K-League Championship on only one occasion in 1989.

At the end of 1995 the side moved from the Dongdaemun Stadium in Seoul to the Mokdong Stadium on the very western edge of Seoul, and renamed themselves "Bucheon Yukong" after the city of Bucheon, only 10 miles from the Mokdong Stadium.

Mid-way through the 1997 season the club rebranded itself as "Bucheon SK", and at the start of the 2001 season moved to the 35,545 seater Bucheon Stadium.

Surprise move to Jeju Island

In 2006, the owners of SK made the surprise decision to relocate to Jeju, renaming the club "Jeju United FC".

Following the move, former fans of Bucheon FC began a movement to establish a brand new Bucheon side. The initial goal was to create a team for participation in the 2007 Korea National League season, however they joined the K3 League for the 2008 season.
