The 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League broke through 2 million spectators on the 20th. It’s been 191 games.

The KBO League, which surpassed 1,977,848 spectators by the 19th, the previous day, sold out the Lotte Giants and SSG Landers match held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 20th (29,990 seats), confirming the 2 million spectator breakthrough early.

On this weekend, the Gwangju-Kia Champions Field was also filled to the brim. A KIA Tigers official said, “As of 4:30 pm on the 20th, 17,510 people visited Champions Field.”

The fact that the number of spectators surpassed 2 million in just one game this year is faster than the 183 games in 2019, right before the Corona 19 pandemic (global pandemic). In fact, the number of spectators has recovered to pre-pandemic levels.

The fastest number of games that have surpassed 2 million spectators since the 10 club system in 2015 is only 166 games in 2017.스포츠토토

Meanwhile, Korean professional baseball started in 1982, the first year of its inception, with 1,438,768 spectators. It was a six-team system at the time, and considering the lack of baseball field facilities, this is a fairly large number.

It was 1986, four years later, that the number of spectators exceeded 2 million for the first time. At that time, 2,141,112 spectators visited the baseball field.

It exceeded 3 million spectators in 1990 and 4 million spectators in 1993. The KBO League, which exceeded 5 million spectators in 2008, surpassed 6 million spectators in 2011, followed by 7 million spectators in 2012 and 8 million spectators in 2016.
