KFA lays out many options ahead of planned World Cup qualifier in Pyeongyang next month Updated: 2019-09-23 16:13:03 KST

South Korea's football governing body is laying out many options to hold a World Cup qualifying match between the two Koreas in Pyeongyang next month.
The Korea Football Association is preparing for a number of scenarios although it has yet to receive an official response from North Korea.
The KFA initially wanted its team to fly directly from the South,… but have applied for Chinese visas in case they need to travel to the North through a connecting flight from China.
Some 30 South Korean players have already applied for the visa, which can take several days to process.
The Taeguk Warriors are also considering the possibility of arriving late in Pyeongyang just one day before the match.
The match, if it takes place as planned in Pyeongyang on October 15th, will mark the first-ever World Cup qualifier between the two Koreas played in the North.
