Ulsan Hyundai, Jeonbuk Hyundai, Pohang Steelers, and Incheon United, which compete in the ‘2023-24 AFC Champions League (ACL)’, have acquired ACL licenses.
Ulsan and Jeonbuk won last year’s K League 1 and FA Cup, respectively, while Pohang and Incheon finished 3rd and 4th in K League 1, respectively, securing the right to participate in the ‘2023-24 ACL’.
Therefore, Ulsan, Jeonbuk, Pohang, and Incheon applied for an ACL license to compete in the ‘2023-24 ACL’ to be held in August, and the Korea Professional Football Federation (hereinafter referred to as the Federation) announced the Club Qualification Review Committee on the 17th of this month for four clubs. opened 토토사이트
The Club Qualifications Deliberation Committee is an independent body that reviews the issuance of a club license, and determines whether or not to issue a license by evaluating whether the club that is applying for the license meets the criteria under the AFC Club Licensing Regulations. The criteria for issuing ACL licenses are composed of a total of five areas: ‘sports, facilities, personnel and administration, legal affairs, and finance’.
The Club Qualifications Deliberation Committee confirmed that the previous four clubs met all criteria after screening by field, and as a result, all of them obtained ACL licenses and were able to participate in the ‘2023-24 ACL’.
Meanwhile, as the ACL holding period has been changed from the existing Spring and Autumn Festival to the Autumn Festival starting this year, the federation will carry out separate licensing of clubs that grant qualifications for participating in the K-League and ACL.
Therefore, the ‘K-League License Club Qualification Deliberation Warwin Meeting’, which evaluates the qualifications to participate in the 2024 season K-League, is scheduled to be held in October.
