League structure[edit]

  1. DPR Korea League


As of 2010, FIFA's website and the AFC's website list Mun Jae Chol (문재철) as the association's president; he is also mentioned as such in a report published in November 2008.

Earlier presidents apparently include Choe Nam Gyun (최남균), listed on the FIFA website from July 2007 until at least July 2008, and in an overview of leading positions in the state (as of ?2009) on the website DPRK Search, with “September 2006” in brackets behind his name, and Rim Kyong Man (림경만), listed as president on FIFA's website until June 2007.[2]
