Current season

Jeonnam Dragons (전남 드래곤즈) is a football club founded in 1994 in the Korean city of Gwangyang, Jeonnam province which joined the K League Classic for the 1995 season at the same time as Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors, their Jeolla province rivals. Before January 6, 2014, their name was spelled as Chunnam Dragons.

History[edit]

Jeonnam was established on 16 December 1994. Chunnam appointed Jung Byung-Tak, former South Korean international left winger, as their first manager.

25 March 1995, Jeonnam played their first ever K-League match. Chunnam's best season to date came in 1997 when they finished runners-up, behind Daewoo Royals in the K-League and also lifted the Korean FA Cup. In 1999, Jeonnam also came runners-up in the Asian Cup Winners Cup, beating J-League giant Kashima Antlers 4–1. They became Korean FA Cup champions for a second straight year in 2007.

On 27 December 2007, Jeonnam appointed Park Hang-Seo as new manager after former manager Huh Jung-Moo was appointed as Korea Republic national football team manager.

Curiously the team`s classic rival Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors was established the same year.
