KFA 2016~2020 Plan

Postby SeoulUtd » Wed Dec 23, 2015 6:37 pm

KFA is announced their plan about 4 tier league system.

K3 will start a group league from 2017. And the group will be separate by the 2016 standings unlike present system. So there will be a K3-A league, K3-B league. They have a promotion-regulation system too.

And National league clubs are going to force about their future decisions. "Go into K League or Go into K3 League." KFA said.

And finally KFA will give club license for prepared K3 and National clubs and create KFL-1 and KFL-2 in 2020.

Lincensed clubs will go to 1, others will go to 2. So.. as a result, K Classic, K Challenge, KFL-1, KFL-2 will have a 4 tier system in 2020.

Whatever..

So K3-A and K3-B will be two levels with promotion and relegation from 2017 and the National League will be done away with?

Wonder if this move will see more K3 teams drop out a la Martyrs if things become a bit more professional? Or will it help smaller teams find their own level in the basement. Bad news for Daejeon and Gyeongnam anyway, more leagues to drop down!

Astoundingly, I too am working on my own 2020 plan! Great to know my mind works like the KFA!

Part of my plan involves getting back to Korea and taking over a K3 team...and running it like someone from the 1950s.......

Your 4 year plan is always going to be superior to your Commie 5 year.....they're doing their nut in the 'Yang right now!

Here's the article (in Korean). My understanding (which could be horrendously wrong):

Promotion and relegation to be introduced within the two-division K3-League for 2018. Then National League and K3-League to be scrapped at the end of the 2019 season (this isn't directly stated, but can be inferred), with a four-tier KFL replacing them for the 2020 season (KFL-1, KFL-2, KFL-3, KFL-4). The KFL will have more regulations than the K3 (club licences, stadium requirements, regulated player contracts), so K3 clubs will have until the end of 2019 to get those sorted. If they do, they can join the KFL-1. If they don't, they'll be put into the KFL-2. Amateur clubs currently found below K3 will go into KFL-3 and KFL-4.

Note that the article does not directly state whether there will be promotion and relegation within the KFL, nor whether there will be pro/rel between the K-League and KFL. It does talk about "completing the system" by 2033, whatever that means.

Are there any longer articles that directly mention plans for pro/rel within the KFL, and for pro/rel between the K-League and KFL?

So N-League is gone by 2018...

The idea of taking on a K3 side and taking it up the leagues just got real folks! 4 years to find some capital and it'll be Jungnang Chorus Bora's Pororo Undercracker's Utd

You've read more into it than I have. :) The press release seems rather vague (intentionally so?) to me - see my earlier post (now edited) above.

At least one person has stated that the N-League will be "disbanded by 2018," but I can't find any official sources for that.

Would be nice if any of the few remaining journalists left in Korea would follow up with the KFA and ask them about if pro/rel will occur throughout the system (and when, if introduced in phases), rather than simply regurgitating the press release.

Another question I have is where regionalisation will occur in the new pyramid. My guess would be in KFL-3 (fifth division), but wouldn't it ideally be higher than that?

Regionalisation is a bit of a tricky one I guess now. I suppose you could do a KFL3-N and KFL3-S but doesn't seem they are going that way and it might be for the best.

The guy referred to above said the statement about the National League being wound up "by 2018" came from the actual seminar. Can anyone find a link to the transcript (if such a thing is online)? I had a quick browse of the KFA website but didn't see it.

What makes you think that? What would the advantages be?

South Korea is roughly the same size as England, right? England has five levels of national leagues, then becomes regional. Would it make sense for Korea to have more levels of national leagues than England?

Could the KFL-4 (sixth-division) ajeossis be arsed to drive cross-country for matches?

Nope nope.

KFL3 will be a regional league for metropolitans (or big area like provinces) and KFL4 will be a regional league for each cities.

Thank you for clarifying. I still wonder if four national divisions is too much. :smt102

Can we work on league names/descriptions yet?

My very descriptive, rather boring proposal is:

The Hite-Jinro KFL4 Sunday Afternoon with Time to Spare League
The Naver KFL3 Saturday Morning Serious About Being Involved in the Game League
The Otoggi KFL2 Saturday Afternoon Leagues for Serous players
The Daum-KakaoTalk KFL1 Saturday Afternoon Big Boy League

:smt109
There are two routes to success in football. One is being good. The other is being lucky. You need both to win a championship. But you need only one to win a match.

Yeah I screwed that up by confusing myself with k3 and kfl3. I meant they aren't going to regionalise k3 level.

It takes two hours to go from one end of Korea to the other on the KTX whereas it takes about a month in England. It takes so long to get across England that some English clubs don't even bother to play in the English league system. Germany has three national divisions. It takes about a month to get from one end of Germany to the other too.

Still, I can't see why the third tier couldn't be regionalised in Korea. They could play interregionally in the playoffs if the really needed to.

Can't see a football team at Martyrs level paying for 20 ktx tickets every second game though.

Even Challenge teams bus it. What may work is three levels and then regional leagues. In Korea at that level you are pretty much amateur.
