At this board meeting, the Football Association also deliberated on next year’s budget. The budget for next year is 158.1 billion won. This is the largest ever, surpassing 123.4 billion won in 2013. An official from the Football Association explained, “The reason the budget for next year has increased significantly is because a large amount of money is invested for the construction of a comprehensive soccer center in Cheonan in 2024.”

Among next year’s budget revenues, the association’s own revenues, such as sponsorships from official partner companies, A-match revenues, and FIFA dividends, totaled 88.7 billion won. Sports Toto fund income of 22 billion won is next.

The Korea Football Association plans to spend 51.1 billion won to build a comprehensive soccer center. In addition, 32.5 billion won for the operation of the national team and 26.9 billion won for domestic competitions will be invested.
