No worries about box office success despite bad news… Exceeded 1 million spectators in 101 KBO league games

The sluggishness in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) and various misconduct by players and managers. Concerns have grown over the various bad news before and after the season, but it seems that there is no big problem in mobilizing professional baseball spectators.

The 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League played a total of 101 games until the 26th and mobilized 1,001,393 spectators.

With 9,914 people per game, the number of spectators easily exceeded 1 million in less than a month after the opening.

The prospect of box office success in professional baseball this season was not bright. At the 2023 WBC held just before the season, the baseball national team suffered a ‘disaster’ of being eliminated in the first round, and bad news such as Seo Jun-won’s (former Lotte’s) suspicion of criminal acts against minors and former KIA general manager Jang Jeong-seok’s demand for back money continued.

Recently, Lee Chun-woong (LG) admitted to illegal gambling and is under investigation by the prosecution.

Various bad news poured in before and after the season, but it seems that there is no problem with the box office.

In the opening game on the 1st, all 5 stadiums including Jamsil, Gocheok, Suwon, Incheon and Daegu were sold out. It is the first time in 11 years since 2012, when all 8 teams were sold out before the opening game.

Looking at the point of breakthrough of 1 million spectators, it is the slowest pace since 2015 (103 games) since 2015, when professional baseball became a system of 10 clubs.

However, compared to 2016 (91 games), 2017 (95 games), 2018 (92 games), and 2019 (90 games), it is difficult to see that there is a problem with the box office because the difference is about a day or two in terms of date.

In particular, considering the fact that matches continued without spectators due to Corona 19 for three years from 2020, the mobilization of spectators is on the smooth side.

So far, the number one cumulative audience is LG, which competes for the lead, and has attracted 158,159 people while playing 11 games at home. In second place was the “defending champion” SSG, with 132,230 players in 9 games. The Samsung Lions are third with 121,448 players. 메이저놀이터
