2005 K League

The 2005 season of the K-League kicked off on May 15. The season and playoff format was the same as the one used in the 2004 season. The playoff fixtures are set to take place in late November and early December.

Busan I'Park won the first stage of the 2005 K-League season and guaranteed their slot in the end-of-season Championship playoff. The second stage was won by Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma, with Incheon United and Ulsan Hyundai Horangi joining them in the playoffs. Ulsan defeated Seongnam 2-1 and Incheon defeated Busan 2-0, so the two victorious teams faced each other in the two-legged Championship final. Ulsan ran out 5-1 victors in the first match at the Incheon stadium and, though Incheon won the second leg 2-1, Ulsan emerged victorious 6-3 on aggregate to lift their second league championship.
