The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) announced on the 14th that it has achieved its 100th sell-out of the KBO League season for the first time under the 10-team system (2015). The KBO League, which had been sold out in 98 games before the game, conquered the long-awaited triple-digit sell-out point in the season as all tickets for the games in Jamsil (against the LG Twins-Lotte Giants) and Daejeon (against the Hanwha Eagles-SSG Landers) were sold out.퀸알바

According to KBO, Hanwha (25 times), KIA Tigers (16 times), Doosan Bears (15 times), and Samsung Lions (10 times) have already sold out in double digits. In addition, LG (9 times), Lotte (7 times), KT Wiz, NC Dinos (five times), SSG, and Kiwoom Heroes (four times) have already played their home games in front of a packed crowd several times.

Amid the spectators` warm weather, the average number of spectators per game increased 29 percent from 11,121 last year to 14,565 this year. Compared to the previous year, NC and KIA teams increased 59 percent (7,280 → 11,222) and 52 percent (7,359 → 17,766), respectively, while Hanwha teams increased 47 percent (7,513 → 11,581). SSG, which saw the smallest increase in spectators among the 10 teams, also posted an average of 15,334 per game, far exceeding the league average.

The largest number of spectators in a single season in the history of the KBO League stood at 8.4 million in 2017. At the current pace, it is possible to attract 10 million spectators as well as 9 million for the first time in history. “With the combination of consecutive losses and consecutive wins, there are no weak teams and no strong teams. As it is difficult to predict the outcome, I think it will have a positive impact on the mobilization of spectators.”
