K-League veterans Ki Sung-yong (FC Seoul), Hong Jeong-ho (Jeonbuk Hyundai), Kim Tae-hwan (Ulsan Hyundai), and Kim Seung-dae (Pohang Steelers) will qualify as free agents (FA) in 2024.
The Korea Professional Football Federation announced on the 3rd that a total of 298 players are scheduled to acquire FA qualifications in 2024. Among them, 294 players who registered for the first time in the K-League since 2005 will acquire FA qualifications after the contract period expires on December 31 this year.
However, if the contract is renewed with the current team before the contract period expires, the FA qualification will not be obtained.
Players who first registered in the K-League before 2004, according to the regulations at the time, acquire FA status upon expiration of the contract period if they participate in more than 50% of the official matches played by their team during the contract period.토토사이트
