North and South Korea's women's teams have met thirteen times, their first encounter being a 70 victory for the North in Beijing in 1990. North Korea has won eleven of these encounters, while the South has won just one, and there has been one draw. The South's lone victory was by 10, in Jeonju in 2005. The North's inaugural 70 victory remains its largest, although it subsequently beat the South by a margin of three or more goals on four occasions. Four games have been held on South Korean territory, and one in the North. Because sports in the North are directly funded by the government, whereas the South's team suffers from lack of funding, player development and fan support, the North has held the edge in the series.
