Suwon Samsung Bluewings (Korean: 수원 삼성 블루윙즈) is a South Korean football club based in the city of Suwon, South Korea, that plays in the K League Classic. Founded in December 1995, they have become one of Asian football's most famous clubs with a host of domestic and continental honours. Suwon have won the championship on four occasions, in 1998, 1999, 2004 and 2008.

Asia's Player of the Century Cha Bum-kun was the manager of the club from 2004 to 2010, when he replaced former national team manager Kim Ho who had been the club's first manager.

History

The club was officially founded in December 1995, by Samsung, to be the ninth member of the K-League from the 1996 season. It was also the first club to be founded in one specific city, a plan which led to the K-League initiating plans to encourage the other member clubs to forge similar links with local communities.

Former South Korean national team manager Kim Ho took charge of the side from their first season in the K-League, and the team finished runners-up in the championship play-off that season. The championship was secured in 1998 and retained in 1999 as Suwon started to dominate Korean football.

Suwon lifted the Asian Club Championship (the predecessor to the AFC Champions League) twice in succession in 2000–01 and 2001–02, and also added the Asian Super Cup to their roll of honors on two occasions.

The departure of Kim Ho in 2003 saw Korean football legend Cha Bum-kun appointed manager ahead of the 2004 season, and the club won its third league title in his debut season as manager.

Suwon finished runners-up in both major domestic competitions in 2006, as Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma claimed victory in the K-League championship play-off final and Chunnam Dragons won in the FA Cup final, thwarting Suwon's attempts to win the first ever domestic double in Korean football.

The 2008 season became one of the most successful seasons in the clubs history. Suwon achieved a domestic "double" by winning the K League Championship and the League Cup.
