Club careerEdit

On 1 September 2013, Hong Jeong-ho transferred to FC Augsburg from Jeju United for a fee estimated around €2 million. He signed a four-year contract which will keep him at the club until 2017.[1]

Implication in 2011 match-fixing scandalEdit

During the 2011 K-League season, Hong was accused of being involved in the 2011 South Korean football betting scandal and was held out of a league match during the investigation.[2] Although the investigation discovered that gangs had deposited 4 million won unsolicited into Hong's bank account, he had later returned the funds and was cleared of wrongdoing.[3] Subsequently, Hong was declared eligible for league and national team matches.
