HistoryEdit

Korea has a long football-playing history.[3] In ancient times, there was a Korean ball game called chuk-guk very similar in form to contemporary football. However, Koreans first saw the present version of football in 1882 when British crew members played a game while their vessel was visiting the port of Incheon.[4]

In 1921, the first All Korea Football Tournament was held, and in 1933, The Korea Football Association was organized (following the foundation of Joseon Referees’ Association in 1928), which created a foundation to disseminate and develop the sport.[5]

The Korea Football Association was reinstated in 1948, following the establishment of the Republic of Korea. The KFA became a member of FIFA, the international football governing body that same year. It later joined the AFC (Asian Football Confederation) in 1954.[4]

On 23 January 2013, KFA elected Chung Mong-Gyu as the new chairman.[6]
