Every one of Dongguk University Sport Team's graduates joined professional teams or business teams. Seven graduates from the soccer team, five from the baseball team, and three from the basketball team succeeded in making contracts with domestic professional sports teams, or teams overseas. The Sport Teams had already achieved this unbelievable milestone in 2011, a 100% debut following graduation, and rated a 93% success rate in 2010 as well. Based on enrollment figures from 2013, there are 27 students on the soccer team, 38 students on the baseball team, 17 students on the basketball team, and five students on the golf team at Dongguk. Ahn Jae-bong, head of Dongguk Sport Team, said "It is true that the sport teams of Dongguk do not receive adequate support, financially and in terms of facilities. However, coaches and leaders are trying very hard not to let this situation cause discomfort for students. Students and coaches gathered with pride if the sports teams can achieve this unbelievable record once again, where all graduates can join professional teams." He added that the administrative process is based on each student’s personality and style, because students should enter a suitable team to start their professional career as sport players. One thing that he wants to emphasize is the interest towards university sport league. Like entertainers, players are encouraged when there are many spectators in the galleries, but students these days are not interested in amateur sport such as university games.
