American Football

FOOTBALL (AMERICAN):
Korea has both college and professional (KNFL) teams playing American football. The sport still trails baseball and soccer (football) in popularity with the public, but it has become increasingly popular in the past few years. 

There are two divisions in the league - college (~36 teams) and professional (~6 teams). Each division has its own championship: Tiger Bowl for the college league and the Gwangaeto Bowl for the professional league. The Kimchi Bowl pits the college Tiger Bowl winning team against the professional Gwangaeto Bowl winning team.

The Korea American Football Association (KAFA -  대한미식축구협회)  began about 20 years ago and currently allows a maximum of 5 foreign players per team.

EXPAT TEAM
