Suwon FC Information

Suwon FC may have spent most of their formative years playing in the K2 League, but when they were given their opportunity in top flight football they took their chance with both hands. They finished above many more reputable teams, including their counterparts Suwon Samsung Bluewings. Suwon have maintained their original kit colors of blue and red from their semiprofessional days to their current position in the top flight. They are using the Suwon Sports Complex for their home matches and while the capacity is a relatively low 11,808, it does provide an excellent atmosphere for matches. They have acquired the services of Kim Do-kyun as their manager. He has extensive experience in Korean football, having been a K-League player himself for several teams in the K1 League.

Suwon FC History

Suwon FC was formed in 2003 as a semiprofessional team and was the feeder club to the more illustrious Suwon Samsung Bluewings. They were meant to be the link between promising youth players and the professional ranks. They made their debut in 2003 in the Korea National League, which is more commonly known as the K2 League. Suwon FC won their first trophy in 2004 when they won the Korean President’s Cup National Football Tournament. They continued their impressive start in the K2 League, reaching the playoffs in four of their first five seasons. They eventually achieved their break-through success in 2010 when they won the league for the first time. In 2012, after much deliberation, it was decided that Suwon FC would become a fully professional team. In 2013, they joined the K League Challenge where they finished fourth in their first season. In 2015, the team finished third, which allowed them to make the promotional playoffs, where they beat Busan IPark in the final and won promotion to the K1 League. They made their first-ever appearance in the K1 League in the 2016 season.
