K-League is now K-League Classic
Korea's K-League (now re-titled K-League Classic) is the oldest professional soccer league in Asia, dating from the formation of the Korean Super League in 1983.
The K-League began in 1998 and presently consists of 15 teams in the top division, now known as K-League Classic to celebrate its 30th birthday.
The K-League now refers to the second tier of Korean football from 2013 with K-League Classic now the first division with a new corporate logo.
From 2013 there will be relegation and promotion between the two leagues.
The Korean football season runs from March to December and traditionally strong teams over recent seasons in the top flight include Pohang Steelers, FC Seoul, Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma, Ulsan Hyundai Horang-i, and Suwon Samsung Bluewings.
Korean teams also compete in the Asian Champions League against other teams from such countries as Australia, Japan, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Iran, Qatar, Indonesia, Uzbekistan, and China.
