Busan IPark Fail to Advance to First Division

Busan’s professional football club, Busan IPark, has failed to advance to the first division football league after FC Seoul edged Busan by 2 goals.

Busan IPark lost by an aggregate score of 4 to 2 in the K League promotion-relegation playoff.

Busan played to a 1-1 draw with FC Seoul in the second leg of the promotion-relegation playoff at Seoul World Cup Stadium in the capital city yesterday.

Busan, finishing third in the K League 2 this season, earned the right to face Seoul after beating Daejeon Citizen 3-0 in the K League 2 playoff.

Choi Yoon-gyeum’s side was looking to return to the top league after being relegated in 2015, but they came short to achieve that goal for two consecutive seasons.

Last year, Busan lost to Sangju Sangmu on penalties in the promotion-relegation playoff.
