Asan Mugunghwa Football Club, commonly known as Police FC, is a South Korean football club. Police FC's players comprise Korean professional footballers who are serving their two-year military duty.

Asan Mugunghwa FC have played in the K League Challenge between 2013 and 2016. Starting from the 2017 season, they play their home games in Asan.


Originally founded as National Police Department FC in 1961, the club changed its name to Seoul Police Department FC in 1962 then back to its original name in 1967. During its history it won a number of competitions such as the Korean President's Cup National Football Tournament and the Korea Semi-Professional Football League in the 1960s before it was dissolved in November 1967. The club was reinstated in 1996, and it partly consisted of players serving their compulsory two-year military duty, similar to the other military club Sangju Sangmu FC.

In January 2016, the club name was changed to Ansan Mugunghwa FC. Korean word Mugunghwa means hibiscus syriacus and is the symbol of the Korean Police. After the 2016 season, the team was relocated to Asan.
