The K League United Elimination Game - Round 6

The K League United Elimination Game Round Six

Gwangju FC's Na Sang-ho rose to the challenge posed by a strong Busan IPark at the weekend, causing absolute havoc in last week's Elimination Game in doing so. With an increasing number of participant's left with just a single life, can they navigate their way through to the seventh round?

Round Five Roundup

“Shush, Jon. We’re supporting Busan,” was uttered at me more than once at the Busan-Gwangju match on Sunday. Having a bloody weekend is always terribly exciting. 

While a pretty big plurality of people chose Gyeongnam to not lose (though those people breathed a huge sigh of relief around the 70th minute of that match), the second most chosen team was Busan IPark who ended up losing to the visitors from Gwangju. Seven players lost a life on the what was mostly thought of as a safe bet. Two of the players, Kevin and Jeonbuk supporter Jonny Cook, risked their final life on Busan and are now on the table of losers. 

The round was pretty barren in head-to-head competition. The two exceptions were when Viva-la-K League took a victorious Ulsan over Gangwon, who was supported by Becky Webb costing her the first of three lives. The other match was when Adhitya Pratama took Anyang at home while some crazy guy chose Daejeon away. The game ended in a 1-1 draw. 

With seven players losing a life, it means that only five players have all three lives, 17 have two, 12 have one, and nine players are looking forward to next season. 

Choose…. wisely.

Do we really need to go over this by now? Choose a team that you think will not lose this weekend, but you must not select a side you have previously chosen in earlier rounds. If your team loses, you lose a life. When you have zero lives remaining, then we are afraid it is game over for you.

Teams must be in twenty four hours prior to the first kick off. For this week, that deadline is Friday 13th April at 2:00pm KST (I hope none of you are superstitious!). We are not including this Wednesday's games as the K League 2 are not involved. Please remember you are selecting for this weekend's fixtures.

If you miss the deadline, you will lose a life.

Please enter using the form at bottom of this article. If you wish to change your decision prior to the deadline, please contact either Jon Christian or site editor Matthew Binns. You can also contact them if you cannot remember which teams you selected in previous rounds, though please make sure to check for your name in our previous weekly posts if you can.


Besides eternal glory and the begrudging respect of your peers, we are also giving away a K League United kit (both shirt and 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


As mentioned above, this game only takes place on the weekend unless stated otherwise, in which case you will be contacted with generous notice. We are therefore ignoring the midweek fixtures this week.

Upcoming fixtures for the sixth round are as follows:

Saturday 14th April
Suwon Bluewings vs Sangju Sangmu
Ulsan Hyundai vs FC Seoul
Jeju United vs Incheon United
Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors vs Jeonnam Dragons
Gwangju FC vs Ansan Greeners
Daejeon Citizen vs Asan Mugunghwa
Seoul E-Land vs FC Anyang

Sunday 15th April
Daegu FC vs Gangwon FC
Pohang Steelers vs Gyeongnam FC
