The winner of the Ulsan-Pohang match will play the final in Saudi Arabia against one of the two local clubs, Al Hilal or Al Nasr.

Al-Hilal will play Al-Nassr in their two countries in the semi-final match next Tuesday.

While in even-numbered years, the final will take place at the team’s stadium belonging to the eastern region.

Al Hilal Saudi Arabia is the team that won the title with 3 championships, equal with Pohang Steelers.
