So, after ten gruelling games over six months, Singapore’s Home United were crowned the AFC Cup’s ASEAN Zone champions earlier this month after beating Philippine champions Ceres-Negros 3-1 on aggregate in the final.

However, in the grand scheme of things, Home are only halfway through their journey with a bigger prize still on offer: becoming champions of the AFC Cup proper.

After proving themselves against the best of Southeast Asia, the Protectors will now be tested by the rest of Asia starting with 4.25 SC of DPR Korea, who booked their place in the inter-zone semi-finals by finishing top of East Asia’s Group I.

Considering they may not be familiar to many, FourFourTwo brings you all you need to know about 4.25 SC.
