BUSAN, South Korea — As another long hot summer draws to a close, a new season is only just beginning for the KFFL (Korean Foreigner Football League). Eager football (soccer for our North American friends) enthusiasts and last minute ringers alike will look to this coming weekend with more than a glimmer of excitement. It may not be the English Premier League, but don’t let that fool you. The KFFL boasts an array of talent, from no-nonsense defenders to showboating attackers.
League nationality representation ranges from England, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, Brazil and Mauritania to name a few. This wide range of nationalities makes for great friendships and an interesting variety of footballing styles. Friendships, however, will be cast to one side when the two Busan teams meet in the opening fixture this Saturday. Inter Busan take on reigning league champions Busan United in what is always a competitive and entertaining clash. Inter Busan will be looking to seek revenge on their local rivals after United claimed a win and a draw in the two fixtures last season. Busan United will be looking to kick on from an impressive campaign last season in which they won the KFFL League and KFFL Cup and finished 2nd place in the Ulsan Cup.
