2011 AFC Awards

AFC Fair Play Association of the Year: Korea Republic

Kuala Lumpur: Korea Republic has won the AFC Fair Play Association of the Year award having accumulated more Fair Play points than any other member of the confederation, with the East Asians amassing 574.77 points.

The Korean's total was just 11.38 points more than runners-up Japan - who had won the coveted award in 2010 and 2009 - while Uzbekistan were third with 476.60 points.

Fair Play points are given to all national and club teams participating in AFC competitions and in addition to the number of red and yellow cards received in a match points are calculated on positive play, conduct on and off the field and the behaviour of the team's supporters at the stadium.

"I attribute the success of tonight to my team and the people of Korea because without them this award would not have been possible," Kim Joo-sung, Head of International Relations at the Korea Football Association said after receiving the award from HRH Prince Ali bin Al Hussein, FIFA Vice President and Chairman of the AFC Social Responsibility Committee.

"Fair play is the most important aspect of the game and we want to tell all Koreans the we are the fairest team in Asia."


Wonder how many points Korea lost for Suwon's ACL second leg antics? Quite ironic that Korean football finally received the fair play award after the huge match fixing scandal came to light this year...

And they're ostensibly getting docked half an ACL place because of it, at least according to Greenlion.

The funny thing is nobody gave a sh*t to the AFC player of the Year award, and Jeparov won it for the second time, defeating Iranian.
Blue is the color!

He must have upped his game a hell of a lot after leaving Seoul...

Japan may have finished runners-up to Korea for AFC's Fair Play award but they have won FIFA's Fair Play award for 2011.
