Korean FA Cup


Korean FA Cup

The Korean FA Cup is a national cup knockout competition involving K-League, National League, and various amateur and university-level clubs.The competition started in 1996 with 16 competing clubs, and Pohang Steelers won the inaugural competition on penalties over Suwon Samsung Bluewings. The winner gains entry to the Asian Champions League.

Format

1996-2005

The Korean FA Cup took place after the end of the regular K-League season, and was usually completed within a short timescale. Games were played on a single elimination format with extra time and penalties if required. K-League sides were seeded in the 1st round of the tournament proper, but all matches were played at neutral venues such as Gimcheon and Namhae.

2006-

To elevate the status of the tournament, matches have been spread throughout the year. The 2006 edition, for example, started in early March with rounds also held in April, July, August and November. The final was played in December.

As in previous years, the competition was contested in a straight knockout format.

Past winners

Only two clubs, Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors (3 times) and Chunnam Dragons (3 times), have won the Korean FA Cup more than once.
