Korean League 1 Betting
South Korea Football Odds
Baseball and football are traditionally considered to be the most popular sports in South Korea. Place your football bets on hundreds of leagues across the football world.
The K-League 1, one of the major leagues in the Asian zone, is the first professional football division in South Korea. The K-League has very strict rules regarding foreign players. Teams have five spots on the roster for foreigners, but one is reserved for players from other Asian countries and Australia, and another can only be used for players from ASEAN countries.
Two teams neck and neck in the national championship
The K League, one of the major leagues in the Asian zone, runs from February to December and has 228 matches on which you can bet. The top division of the Korean league comprises just 12 teams, and midway through the season, it splits into two parts, with the top 6 playing for the title and the lower 6 battling to avoid relegation to K League 2.

Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors is the most powerful team in the South Korean championship over the last decade. Since winning their first title in 2009, the team has been racking up records. It is now the most successful team in the country, with many championship trophies.
Next in line under this dominance, and often finishing second in the K League 1 standings, Ulsan Hyundai is slowly catching up. The Ulsan Hyundai team won the AFC Champions League in 2020.
Recommended bets on the K League
