Sangju Sangmu will not be automatically relegated after this season

21 Aug

When the K-League announced that it is introducing the relegation system after this season, it was originally stated that Sangju Sangmu, the army team, will be automatically relegated because AFC does not allow a non-professional team in the first division.

However, the K-League officials have reportedly agreed to leave Sangju Sangmu in the first division for now. The Korean army made it clear that because of the budget problem, it will reduce the size of the squad and only accept amateur players for Sangju Sangmu if the club should be automatically relegated to the second division. After consideration, it has become likely that Sangju Sangmu will gain an independent corporation status so it can stay in the first division. Thus, even though the official announcement has not been made, it is very likely that Sangju Sangmu will not be automatically relegated after this season.
