Announcement of the 2023 Season’s Annual Salary Status, Suwon, ‘Extreme in Inefficiency’, ‘Degraded’ even after spending the sixth most money

It was the height of inefficiency. Suwon Samsung was demoted even though it invested the sixth largest annual salary in the 2023 season.

The Korea Professional Football Federation (President Kwon Oh-gap) announced on Monday the current state of annual player spending by 12 K-League 1 teams and 12 K-League 2 teams (excluding military team Gimcheon Sangmu). The annual salary was calculated based on the actual amount of the basic salary plus various allowances (playout allowance, win allowance, attack point allowance, and other options). Allowances included allowances for games in the K-League, FA Cup, and Asian Champions League in the 2023 season.랭크카지노도메인

All players who have been registered with each club at least once during the entire 2023 season will be calculated. Players who joined or left the team in the middle of the season were included as a number proportional to the length of time they actually belonged to the team. For example, if one player was on the team for only half of the season, it was calculated as 0.5.

All K-League 1 teams spent a total of 138.567123 million won (131,840 U.S. dollars) in annual salary in the 2023 season. The figure represents a sharp increase compared to 12,06064,000 won (120,067 dollars) last year. By team, Jeonbuk Hyundai ranked No. 1 with 19.87677 billion won (19,430 dollars). Jeonbuk has not lost its No. 1 spot since the disclosure of its annual salary. It has seen a slight increase from last year’s 19.71 billion won (13,033 dollars). Ulsan HD was followed by 13.24 billion won (13,065 dollars) for FC Seoul and 11.16 billion won (11,920 dollars) for Jeju United. Among provincial and provincial teams, Incheon United ranked fifth with 11.89 billion won (11,8272 million dollars), showing the largest amount of investment.

Investment and performance were not necessarily proportional. Seoul, ranked third in annual expenditure, and Jeju, ranked seventh and ninth in the Final B, respectively. Jeonbuk also finished the season empty-handed for the first time in 10 years, ranking fourth even after spending the most money.

What stood out in particular was Suwon. Suwon spent 10.68 billion won (9.26 million U.S. dollars) in the 2023 season as its annual salary for its players. It was sixth overall. However, Suwon’s final ranking was the lowest and the lowest was shockingly demoted. Until now, Suwon’s failure was perceived as a result of “lack of investment” after its parent company was transferred to Cheil Worldwide. However, the latest announcement clearly showed that the biggest reason was not because of lack of money but because of inefficiency, which it failed to spend properly. It was in stark contrast to Gwangju FC, which entered the elite Asian Champions League with 5.95 billion won (approx.

Pohang Steelers also spent 9.432575 billion won, the ninth smallest, and achieved “low cost and high efficiency” by winning the second place in the league and the FA Cup. Daegu FC also advanced to the Final A (6th) with 8.44945 billion won, the second smallest in the K League 1, becoming a team ranked higher than the expenditure ranking.

The average annual salary per player in the K-League 1 is 295.452 million won. The average annual salary of Korean players was 235.88 million won, while that of foreign players was 775.351 million won. Ulsan had the highest average annual salary per player at 577.661 million won. Jeonbuk had 484.46 million won, Jeju had 384.976 million won, and Incheon had 318.559 million won.

Among Korean players, the highest-paid players were Kim Young-kwon (1.53 billion won), Kim Jin-soo (1.42 billion won), Cho Hyun-woo (1.3 billion won), Hong Jung-ho (1.17 billion won), and Lee Seung-woo (1.11 billion won) from Suwon FC. Among foreign players, the highest-paid players were Daegu FC Cesinha (1.55 billion won), Ulsan Baco (1.52 billion won), Jeonbuk Gustavo (1.46 billion won), Incheon Gerso (1.41 billion won), and Incheon Mpoku (1.32 billion won).

Meanwhile, the total annual salary of the 12 K-League 2 clubs was 46.8558 billion won, and the average annual salary per person was 185.46 million won. By club, Busan spent the most amount of 5,914,673,000 won, followed by Seoul E-Land with 5,483,932,000 won and Anyang with 5,245,29 million won. Gimpo FC, the second lowest in the league, achieved the feat of advancing to the playoffs with only 2.66 billion won, while Cheonan City, the “new team,” which was noisy due to internal and external problems, fell to the bottom with 2.913469 billion won, which is the eighth place.
