Basketball fans couldn’t find a basketball court in peace for about three years due to Corona 19. The 2019-2020 season ended early with Wonju DB and Seoul SK jointly winning due to the appearance of Corona 19, and the 2020-2021 season opened without spectators, after which only limited spectators were allowed to enter. It was only at the end of the 2021-2022 season that 100% spectator acceptance became possible due to the easing of distancing.
This season, 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball, fortunately opened with no spectator restrictions. Masks are still required to be worn indoors, but many basketball fans have gathered at the stadium. A total of 320,082 people visited the stadium by the end of the first half. Which club has the most spectators?
SK received a total of 45,370 in 13 games held at its home, Jamsil Student Gymnasium, with an average of 3,517, the highest. In the match against Anyang KGC, the official opening match, 4889 seats out of 5400 seats were occupied, and it started off pleasantly. Although they suffered a sluggish performance at the beginning of the season and fell to the bottom, after the return of Choi Jun-yong and Choi Seong-won, they showed an upward trend every day, and SK rose to the third place in a tie with Ulsan Hyundai Mobis. It attracted the largest number of spectators thanks to its improving performance and advantages in the metropolitan area.
The second is Jeonju KCC. KCC, which was expected to grow in popularity with the signing of Heo Ung and Lee Seung-hyun as free agents in the offseason, enjoyed the effect, selling out all seats from the opening game. A total of 47,923 people entered 16 home games, including 3 games played at Gunsan Wolmyeong Gymnasium, even outside the metropolitan area, and the average was 2995.
The club that recorded the least number of spectators was Daegu Korea Gas Corporation. Gas Corporation is a 2nd year freshman club founded last season. The reason why the settlement of Daegu is not complete and that it is a non-metropolitan area is the result of holding the ankle. It played 17 home games, the most among 10 clubs, but received a total of 22,439 spectators, with an average of 1,319, the lowest.
9th is Suwon KT. Despite being in the metropolitan area, a total of 23,047 spectators in 16 games recorded an average of 1,440 spectators. On December 15th, it held the disgraceful record (542) of the minimum spectator record this season. At the time, it was the lowest in the league, and it was a record that occurred due to adverse conditions such as a heavy snow warning. Afterwards, KT, which succeeded in rebounding with the replacement of foreign players, is recording more than 1,000 spectators in its recent 4 home games. 바카라
