Gangwon FC played to a 1-1 draw against Seongnam FC on 20th in the second leg of the promotion playoff at Tancheon Stadium. Gangwon and Seongnam had a 0-0 draw in the first leg on 17th in Gangneung. The two teams were tied on aggregate score after two matches, but Gangwon won Seongnam on away goals.
Gangwon, who have been relegated to the second division at the end of the 2013 season, will return to first division after struggling 3 years in the second division. On the other hand, Seongnam, which have won the Kleague 7 times the most ever, had to accept the humiliating result of their first relegation. Since the KLeague promotion and relegation playoffs operated in 2013, the Challenge teams must survive to defeat the classic teams on all four each seasons.
