The K League United Elimination Game - Round 3

Well that certainly escalated quickly! Round two saw over half the competitors in our K League United Elimination game find themselves unable to accurately select teams incapable of being defeated and are now playing catch up. With the final round of fixtures before the international break being played this weekend, can they avoid losing another life and head into April with their pride intact?

Round Two Roundup

K League United supporter and avid Jeonbuk fan Jon Christian, who has adapted this format from a competition held previously in Jeonbuk supporters group Los Cruzados Verdes, summarises the fallout of round two below:

Round Two of the Elimination Challenge was everything that I hoped it would be, a bloodbath with no blood on my hands. 

26(!) of our 41 participants lost a life this weekend. This was mostly due to many people writing off Sangju, Incheon, and Gyeongnam as easy wins. 20 of the 26 losers chose Ulsan (14), Jeonbuk (4), or Jeju (2).

K League Elimination Game Round 2 Choices

The biggest head-to-head of the weekend was Incheon hosting Jeonbuk. Three of the smartest people in the world chose Incheon United while five chose Jeonbuk. Other head-to-head included Ansan (three players) hosting Daejeon (one player) and Seoul E-Land (one player) hosting Busan (three players). In total, 7 players lost in head-to-head matches. 

Going into week three, 10 players remain perfect, 24 have two lives, and 7 are already on their last life. 

The current lives table is as follows;


The rules to the game are very simple. Each week you are required to choose one team from the upcoming weekend's fixtures that you think will not lose their game.

The catch? Once you have chosen your team, you cannot choose that side again in later rounds. For example, if I choose "FC Seoul" in an earlier round, I cannot use them again and will have to choose a different team for later rounds. Therefore, think carefully about who you select!

You must submit your team 24 hours prior to the first kick off of the round. In the case of this round, the deadline is Friday March 16th at 2:00pm KST.

Every player who entered the competition from the first round was given three lives to begin with, and some still have all of them remaining. Those who wish to enter the competition from this round can still do so but will start with one life. This is your last chance to enter the competition if you have not done so by now. From round four onwards, the format will switch to a submission form with other players' choices hidden until after the deadline. There will be no new competitors allowed from round four.

If the team you select loses their fixture, you lose a life. If you lose all your lives, then we are afraid it is game over for you.

If you also do not enter your team by the deadline, you are disqualified for that particular round and are docked one life.

To win the game, simply be the final competitor standing.


Besides the joy of triumph, we are also giving away a K League United kit (both shirt and matching shorts), in addition to a standard match ticket (home or away) for any competition featuring a K League side playing in Korea in the current or following season. Tickets will not be offered for matches outside of the country.

For those wishing to partake from outside of the Korea peninsula, the K League United kit will be sent out to you free of charge via a standard international shipping service.


We will only be playing the game for weekend fixtures when both K League 1 and K League 2 teams are in action together. There are no plans for midweek rounds at present. If this changes, competitors will be notified by their submitted email address (which will be required to compete from round four onwards).

Upcoming fixtures for the first round are as follows:

Saturday 17th March
Incheon United vs Daegu FC
Gangwon FC vs Sangju Sangmu
Jeonnam Dragons vs Gyeongnam FC
Gwangju FC vs Bucheon 1995
Suwon FC vs Seongnam
Ansan Greeners vs FC Anyang

Sunday 18th March
Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors vs FC Seoul
Ulsan Hyundai vs Jeju United
Suwon Bluewings vs Pohang Steelers
Busan IPark vs Asan Mugunghwa
Daejeon Citizen vs Seoul E-Land

So go on, what is there to lose?
