“Cheer up, LG-Lotte-KIA” Let’s go to the first 10 million spectators in professional baseball

Attendance at Hanwha home games increased by 89%, exceeding 2 million spectators within a month of opening

“There is no fuss because of Ryu Hyun-jin.”

Daejeon, which was called a ‘no fun’ city because there was not much to enjoy, is crowded with people every day this season when Ryu Hyun-jin returns to Hanwha. Professional baseball Hanwha fans have sold out all home games since the opening. Compared to last season, the number of spectators at Hanwha’s home games increased by 89%. This is the highest record among the 10 clubs.

However, the limitation of the total number of seats (12,000 seats) is unavoidable. The average audience of 12,000 was ranked 7th among the 10 professional baseball teams as of April 30. The average number of spectators (15,472) who visited the stadium where Hanhwa played a visiting game is more than that of a home game. Including both home and visiting games, an average of 13,792 people (6th place) visited Hanwha games as of today. 메이저사이트

LG, KIA, and Lotte, which are traditionally popular teams, are ranked 1st to 3rd in average attendance per game. LG is the ‘defending champion’ and KIA is currently in first place, so it is not surprising that there are many spectators. Even though Lotte finished April in last place (10th place) with only 8 wins, 1 draw, and 21 losses (winning ratio 0.276), there were many spectators.

This year’s professional baseball exceeded 2 million spectators after 148 games on the 27th of last month, one month after its opening. This is the second fastest pace in professional baseball history, following 2012. If the current pace is maintained, the audience can exceed 10 million for the first time in history.

Professional baseball officials agree that ‘Lotte must revive to enter the era of 10 million spectators.’ During the first 10 games of the season opening, an average of 16,418 people attended Lotte games, but for the last 10 games, the number decreased by nearly 20% to 13,559. As Lotte was unable to get out of last place, the number of spectators also decreased.

History proves that if all three teams, LG, KIA, and Lotte, do well, the number of spectators will increase. In 2017, when the largest number of spectators in professional baseball history (8,400,688) was gathered, KIA won its 11th championship, and Lotte also entered the ‘fall baseball’ stage for the first time in five years. LG also competed in the top five until the end of the season. 온라인 슬롯
