The three-time defending K-League champions Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors will host the FA Cup winners Suwon Bluewings. Match begins at 6 am EDT.
It is a little bit later than the teams probably wanted, but the South Korean K-League will get underway Friday.
The two teams that will contest the opener are the two cup-winners from last season, as three-time defending K-League champions Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors will host the FA Cup winners Suwon Bluewings.
Jeonbuk has owned this series since 2016 started, with nine wins and four draws (to just two losses), and won two with a draw last season. Jeonbuk made the Jeonju World Cup Stadium a fortress last season, losing just two of 20 games.
Look for the champions to kick off 2020 in style Friday with a home victory.
