K-League’s leading female players gather for the 2023 K-WIN CUP!

The K-WIN CUP (2023), hosted by the Korea Professional Football Association (KPA), will be held at the Jecheon Football Center from October 14 to 15.

The ‘K-League Queen Cup’ has been held annually since 2010 to expand the base of women’s amateur soccer, and has been reorganized from the previous women’s college club soccer tournament to an adult women’s futsal tournament where K-League clubs directly select players and form teams to compete since last year.

What’s new this year is that the tournament has expanded from 12 teams last year to 25 teams from all K League clubs, and the game format has changed from futsal to six-a-side mini soccer, making it easier for amateur players to participate with relatively simple rules.

The participating teams are as diverse as Cheongju and Gimpo, Chungcheongbuk-do, where club employees play, Busan, where Busan I-Park’s Eo Jung-won’s sister plays, Bucheon, where 2006 Doha Asian Games golf gold medalist Jung Jae-eun plays, and Suwon and Daejeon, where the winners of the club-organized futsal tournament play.

On October 14, the first day of the K League Queen Cup, after the opening ceremony, the teams will compete in five groups of five teams in a full league format. The game style is six-a-side mini-soccer, with 15 minutes for each half, and the number of substitutions is unlimited. After every game, the teams will have a recreation to socialize with each other, and a draw for brackets to play a ranked tournament to hear scores, impressions, and more.

The next day, on the 15th, we’ll have a ranked tournament, with the winner of the 1st place tournament finals taking home the championship. All other ranked tournaments will have a winner’s bracket and a loser’s bracket to ensure that all teams are able to enjoy the competition and not be eliminated early.

After every match, an award ceremony and closing ceremony will be held, and the team awards will include the tournament winners and runners-up, while the Fair Play Award is new this year, and the individual awards will include the MVP of each group in addition to the top scorer.

The Federation provides full support to all teams participating in the K League Cup, including training subsidies, transportation, and accommodation. In addition, through the ‘K League Queen Cup’, the Federation will strive to expand the base of women’s soccer and revitalize sports culture, and will actively promote integrated marketing with K League clubs in the future.

Meanwhile, this year’s K League Queen Cup is sponsored by Blade Creative, Jecheon City, Lingtee, and Dongwon Spring Water, and funded by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Korea Sports Promotion Organization. 먹튀검증
