Daegu FC Information

In 2018, Daegu FC won the Korean League Cup. Daegu’s upward trajectory continued with their highest ever league finish of third place in 2021. Despite their great success in 2021, they parted ways with manager Lee Byung-geun at the end of the season and appointed Brazilian Alexandre Gama to take over the reins to start the 2022 season.

Daegu have a distinctive all light blue kit and have a full white away kit. These have been their colors since the club’s inception. Daegu played their home matches at the iconic Daegu World Cup Stadium from 2003 to 2018, which had a capacity of 66,422 seats. This stadium was too big and too costly to maintain, so in 2019 they moved to the DGB Daegu Bank Park, which has a capacity of 12,415. This stadium is a football-specific stadium that has been built on the same ground as the demolished Daegu Civic stadium.

Daegu FC History

Daegu FC was formed in 2002 as a community club and was funded by the Daegu government. In 2003, they made their debut in the K1 League and became K-League players. They had a difficult first season where they finished 11th out of 12 teams. They made a slight improvement the following year when they finished in 10th position and then enjoyed their best year at the time when they finished in 7th spot in 2006. In 2008, they adopted the tactic by being ultra-offensive and ended as the league’s top goal scorers, but also had the worst defensive record, which meant they eventually slipped to 11th position. Their worst year followed when they finished last in the league, and they were eventually relegated at the end of the 2013 season. They played in the K2 League for the next three years before they were promoted back to the K1 League in 2017. They performed very well on their re-entry into top flight football and finished in eighth position.
