Korean Women's League
First introduced in 2015, this tournament is Korea's response to China's popular Women's League that helps sharpen the skills of top Chinese female players. This is even more interesting because it accommodates more players and allows top-level foreign players to join. The tournament is sponsored by MDM, a real estate company.
There are eight teams, each having three regular players. Teams may have substitute players, as well as inviting guest players from other countries. The regular season runs like proper European football leagues - each team plays all other teams twice (one home and one away match). There are 56 matches and 168 games in the regular season. Several rounds are held in a congress format, meaning that all teams gather to play and perform Go promoting activities. Three best teams enter the playoff stage, with the No. 3 team challenging the No. 2 team, and the winner in turn challenging the No. 1 team.
