Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors is a football club located in Jeollabuk-do, South Korea. The side performs in the K-League.
Jeonbuk Hyundai traces its roots back to the club created on December 12, 1994. In 2000 Green Warriors won their first professional title as they lifted the FA Cup. The club secured another FA Cup in 2003. In 2005 Choi Gang-hee took on first team responsibilities and led his side to a third FA Cup triumph. The 2006 season wasn’t an impressive one with Jeonbuk finishing 11th in the K-League. However, the Asian football community was stunned when in 2006 the club claimed the AFC Champions League triumph. Gamba Osaka, Dalian Shide and Ulsan Horang-i were early casualties before Green Warriors beat Al-Karama in the final.
In 2009 the club sealed the league title after securing a convincing 3-1 win over Seongnam Ilhwa. In 2011 Green Warriors were crowned K-League champions for the second time in their history.
The team’s official colours are green, black and white. Jeonju World Cup Stadium hosts the club’s home matches.
