The fans, who must have been thirstier than anyone else, responded with great passion.
Professional baseball LG recorded its 7th home sellout of the season in the final game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League home game against Doosan held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 15th. Jamsil Stadium was filled with 23,750 people. Including the sell-out of the two-game series (away) against Doosan held from September 30 to October 1, this is LG’s 9th Jamsil sell-out of the season.토토사이트
LG ranked first in the pennant race for the first time in 29 years since 1994, the year of its last combined championship. Fans’ love is bound to be strong. Coincidentally, the final game of the season was also played at home. The club even prepared a DJ party and fireworks event for fans, including the regular season championship trophy presentation ceremony and Korean Series launch ceremony.
A packed crowd was a given. All tickets were sold 7 minutes before the call for play ball was called. This is the result of fans continuously trying to catch a glimpse of the players before the first game of the Korean Series begins on November 7th.
With this sellout, the final number of spectators for LG’s home game this season was 1,202,637. Not only did it easily surpass last year’s record of 906,686, but it also succeeded in exceeding 1.2 million home spectators for the first time in 10 years in the club’s history. At the time, the 2013 season was the last successful fall baseball season in 11 years. It is also the first record among all clubs since 2015, when the KBO League established itself as a 10-team system. It is no problem to describe it as a huge success.
LG coach Yeom Kyeong-yeop also cited the love of fans as the primary driving force behind winning the regular season. The head coach said, “The more fans come to a game, the more focused the players are. “In that respect, it was a great help in achieving results,” he said. “This is the first place we achieved together with 1.2 million viewers.” “That makes me even more happy and I hope that many people will come to the Korean series as well.”
The KBO League is also laughing at LG’s progress. As of the 14th, the cumulative attendance of 7,984,592 for 712 games easily surpassed the 8 million mark. This is the fourth record in history and the first in five years after successfully achieving 8 million spectators for three consecutive years, with 8,339,577 in the 2016 season, 8,400,688 in the 2017 season, and 8,073,742 in the 2018 season. It is a level that can surpass the 2018 season and aim for the third largest audience in history.
