Therefore, KFA decided to change the ASEAN quota to attend K-League 2020. Each team playing in K-League, is able to register up to 5 foreigners including 1 asian, 1 ASEAN player.

In the interview, KFA representative said, "some clubs ask to change the quota in ASEAN. Some is considering players to sign contract.
