|This study investigated participation of Korean single team in the 6th FIFA World Youth Championship. Taking the opportunity of opening a reunification football game, South and North Korea agreed to organize a single team to participate in the Championship through an athletic meeting. South and North Korea selected 18 players through a warm-up match in Seoul and Pyongyang and had a joint training in Pyongyang and Seoul. The team composed of 62 people had an inaugural meeting in Seoul and departed for Portugal. Korean single team had a final check on their power through field training and warm-up matches in Portugal and participated in the Championship. In spite of lack in objective power, Korean single team successfully advanced to the quarterfinals with a result of a win, a loss, and a tie. Participation of Korean single team made such positive achievements as creation of a peaceful atmosphere in Korean Peninsula, exercise of potential and pride of Korean people. However, it gave an implication to South-North athletic exchange to be made in the future due to problems of South Korea``s one-sided concession to North Korea regarding composition of the single team, selection of officers for the team, and excessive expenditures.
