Korean FA Cup
The Korean FA Cup is a national cup knockout competition involving K-League, K2 League and various amateur clubs. The competition started in 1996 with 16 competing clubs, and Pohang Steelers won the inaugural competition on penalties over Suwon Samsung Bluewings.
The Korean FA Cup takes place after the end of the regular K-League season, and is usually completed within a short timescale. Games are played on a single elimination format with extra time and penalties if required. K-League sides are seeded in the 1st round of the tournament proper, but matches are all played at neutral venues such as Gimcheon and Namhae .
Only one club, Cheonbuk Hyundai Motors, have won the Korean FA Cup more than once.
