KBO nears 5 million attendance milestone…TV ratings up year-over-year

The 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League is on the verge of reaching 5 million fans.

The 2023 KBO League is 78 fans away from reaching the 5 million mark with a cumulative attendance of 4,999,922 fans in 452 games through the third day. If the league reaches 5 million fans on the 4th, it will have reached 1 million fans in 93 games since reaching 4 million fans on the 2nd of last month. The number of games to reach 4-5 million is the second-fastest trend since 2015, when the 10-team format began.

The overall average attendance over the three-day period was 11,062, a 34% increase over the same number of matches the previous year. The club with the highest average attendance per game is league leader LG. With a total of 795,151 fans in 49 games at home, an average of 16,228 fans per game, LG ranks first among the 10 clubs in total attendance and average attendance.메이저사이트

This is followed by SSG (14,755), Lotte (13,258), Doosan (13,025), Samsung (10,040) and KIA (11,192), with six of the 10 clubs averaging more than 10,000 fans per game. Kiwoom had the highest increase, jumping from an average of 4548 to 8000 fans last season, a whopping 76% year-on-year increase. NC saw a 70% increase, while Lotte and Hanwha each saw a 48% increase in attendance.

It’s worth noting that this is ahead of the pace of the pre-COVID-19 season. The average attendance is up about 3.4% compared to the same number of games in 2019, and the number of games needed to reach 5 million spectators from the start of the season has been slightly reduced from 463 games in 2019 to 457 games this season.

This season has been marked by a disproportionate number of canceled games due to frequent rains since spring, but with the return of normalcy, fans are returning to the ballpark.

Television ratings have also risen amid fierce competition in the standings. According to Nielsen Korea, the average viewership rating for the 2023 KBO League was 0.864% on a three-day basis (based on households nationwide), an increase of about 6% from the same number of games last season.
