Korea Baseball Organization, 2009 attendance map.

Filed under: Korea: baseball — admin @ 1:10 pm


My post on the KBO from February, here… ‘Korea Baseball Organization: the 8 teams, with parent corporations listed, and baseball stadium photos.’”.

The KBO began it’s season last week. 2009 Korea Series champions were the Kia Tigers, of Gwanju.
Last season, as a league, the Korea Baseball Organization averaged 11,138 per game.
The biggest draw in South Korea are the Lotte Giants (of Busan), who averaged 20,597 per game last season. The next highest drawing teams are two of the three ball clubs from the capital, Seoul…the Doosan Bears, who averaged 15,731 per game in 2009, and the LG Twins, who drew 14,778 per game. Fourth highest were the SK Wyverns of Inchon, who pulled in 12,556 per game last year. Fifth highest were the champs, Kia Tigers, who drew 8,818 per game. That was a 51% increase over the 2008 figure, which was 5,838 per game. That puts the Kia Tigers as having the same small-sized fan base as the other 3 KBO teams, who all drew below 6,000 per game in 2009.
[Note: if you want to see KBO attendance figures, I would recommend going to my February 2010 post (via the link at the top of this post), and scroll down 2/3rds of the page, to 2 paragraphs above the Kia Tigers photos. Because at the KBO site, on the attendances list, half the teams' names are printed in Korean...I translated them and listed them in the order that they appear on the KBO site.]

Thanks to the Demis site, for the base map of the Korean Peninsula…
Thanks to Locker, for the cap photos… KBO merchandise.
