With Suwon FC’s success in staying in the competition, we will be able to see a team from Suwon in the K League 1 next season.
Earlier, Suwon Samsung, a traditional favorite, finished last in the league (12th) and was relegated to the second division for the first time since its inception in 1995.
With Suwon FC also in the mix for relegation, there was some speculation that both Suwon clubs would be in the second division side by side.
