The K League finally get underway this coming weekend following a two month delay due to the COVID19 virus outbreak. All players have been tested and game will be played behind closed doors (no fans). Both the K League 1 and K League 2 will have shortened seasons but should run from now until December. The highlight games this week are the Korean Supercup between defending champs Jeonbuk Hyundai and FA Cup holders Suwon Bluewings on Friday evening. Also Incheon vs. Daegu on Saturday should be an interesting game between two interesting teams.

The previously mentioned Jeonbuk Hyundai vs. Suwon Bluewings game will be LIVE and FREE to watch via the K League YouTube Channel: LINK HERE
