The 3:00 AM Drinking Game For K League Insomniacs

South Korea's top division returns on Friday morning at 6 a.m. ET!

The world is slowly returning to normalcy as businesses begin to reopen and football is sprouting again.

The Bundesliga aims to return May 16, and South Korea's K League will stream its opening match with English commentary on May 8. There will finally be games to watch on the weekend again.

The only issue is that most K League matches will take place in the middle of the night, around 4:00 a.m. ET.

But the solution is simple: Grab a roommate and play the best soccer drinking game to make it to sunrise.

The Rules

Each person playing must pick one of the two competing teams before the match. Unless you’re a K League enthusiast, no one will know which team is better, which adds to the intensity. Once you've selected a team, you follow these simple rules and by the time the clock hits 90 minutes, you'll be snoozing on the couch.
