Today's professional sports teams are in a highly competitive environment with no prospect in sight. While the team that was considered the favorite to win the championship is suffering from severe slump, the team that was expected to join the team at the bottom is making a long drive taking advantage of victory. The unexpected situation is continuing to repeat. This is also a sign of the need for agony over the use of human resources and strategies in the sports industry, the most important checkpoint for human resources. Accordingly, this study selects Daegu FC soccer team, Korea's first team for citizens, as the subject of its research and conducts a case study on human resources. First, this introduces importance of common resources from Frey, et al. (2015) for case analysis. Through subsequent analysis, this study will determine the direction Daegu FC should proceed. The main contribution of this research is that it presents the importance of human resources which is one of basic tactics sports teams should utilize. In the sports industry, where the temporality is underlined for its clear beginning and ending, teams are more likely to use diverse sports tactics to get superior grades. This enriches the basis of their tactics.
