Vice Chairman Lee Young-pyo said on his social media on the 3rd, “I resign from the position of vice-president with responsibility for not blocking the passage of the board of directors related to the football association’s disciplinary pardon last week.” He expressed his intention to resign with an apology, saying, “I am sorry for not fulfilling my role as vice president. I apologize once again for not fulfilling my responsibilities where I should be.”

Vice Chairman Lee Dong-guk also decided to step down on his own. Through social media, Lee Dong-guk said, “Last February, at the suggestion of the Football Association, I became vice president. It was a time to learn and understand the work, and although a significant part of the agenda was progressed internally, I felt a sense of responsibility that I could not prevent by confidently speaking about my experience as a player. I feel it,” he said.

Cho Won-hee, who served as the chairman of the Social Contribution Committee of the Football Association, also announced his resignation through his Instagram account.

On the 28th of last month, ahead of the soccer team evaluation match between Korea and Uruguay, the Korea Football Association held a board meeting in the conference room of the Seoul World Cup Stadium and decided to pardon 100 former and current players, coaches, and referees who were disciplined for various misconduct. Faced with strong public opposition, the association held an emergency board meeting and withdrew the amnesty.
