In accordance with the South Korean government's eased social distancing measures from November 1st, regardless of vaccination status, the K League has decided to raise the capacity caps placed on its clubs to 50% ahead of K League 1 Final Round and the Promotion/Relegation Playoffs.

In accordance with South Korea's eased social distancing measures, K League stadiums will be allowed to open up to 50% of capacity. However, if a vaccinated area is operated, 100% of the seats can be sold without spacing between them. 

Considering the different structures and circumstances of each stadium, the K League allows each club to autonomously decide whether or not to operate a vaccination zone and the size of the operation. If all seats of the stadium are operated as an exclusive area for the fully vaccinated, up to 100% of the entire stadium can be used for spectators.

The vaccinated-only zone is for those who have been fully vaccinated for two weeks (certified by vaccination certificate and COOV app). Those not fully vaccinated must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test that was taken 48 hours before the match. Only those under the age of 18 are exempt while those who are unable to be vaccinated due to medical reasons may be allowed to enter providing they bring a doctor's note. Within the inoculator-only area, you can sit without spacing between seats and eat.

Fans are permitted to sit without spacing between seats and eat and drink within the vaccinated-only area. This is not permitted in areas outside the vaccinated-only zone. 

Chanting and cheering is still prohibited in accordance with the government's guidelines.
