South Korea - KOVO 2017/18 V-League

  • Thank you theloneracer for covering! My internet line was broken and it has been fixed today.



    Anyway the start of the playoffs is on March 18.
    Just a quick review, for the past 3 seasons the 2nd ranked team after the regular season have won the championship. Will it be the same this season or will Hyundai break it?


    2014-15: OK Savings Bank(#2) won the championship against Samsung.
    2015-16: OK Savings Bank(#2) won the championship against Hyundai Capital.
    2016-17: Hyundai Capital(#2) won the championship against Korean Air.
