FC Seoul set to surpass ‘400,000 spectators’ for first time in K-League paid attendance era
FC Seoul, one of professional soccer’s most popular clubs, is on track to break a box office record.
According to the club, more than 25,000 tickets have been sold less than a day after the ticket pre-sale began at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, ahead of the club’s final home match of the 2023 season against Suwon Samsung in the 37th round of the K League 1, which will be held at 4:30 p.m. on May 25 at Seoul World Cup Stadium.
This season, Seoul has drawn 394,222 fans, an average of 21,890, for its last 18 home games.
Add to that the current ticketing figures for the upcoming match against Suwon, and the total attendance will exceed 400,000 and the average attendance will exceed 20,000.
Since the 2018 season, 바카라사이트 when the K League started officially tracking only paid attendance, no team has ever reached 400,000 total fans and 20,000 average fans in a season, so Seoul will be looking to make history.
Seoul previously set the record for the highest average attendance in a season in Korean professional sports in 2010 with an average of 28,758 (536,397 for all 19 games), but the previous record has become somewhat less meaningful since the announcement of paid attendance figures.
In the era of paid attendance, Seoul’s 17,061 in 2019 (324,162 for 19 games) is the highest, and the team has already surpassed that total for home games this season, putting it on pace for a new record.
If the game draws more than 22,116 fans, Seoul will surpass the previous record of 21,901 set by the Lotte Giants in 2008 for the highest average attendance in a single season in the KBO.
With both Seoul and Suwon dropping to the K League One Final B this season, the final “super match” of the year is significant for both teams.
Seoul, who have already secured the highest possible seventh place in Final B, need to give their fans hope for next year’s Yujong Labyrinth in their final home game of the year, while Suwon, currently bottom of the table, are fighting tooth and nail to avoid a ‘direct drop’ to the second tier.
Even more desperate, Suwon’s away fans are expected to fill the stands for this match.
The Seoul club plans to reward the fans for their support by organizing a halftime performance by boy group Treasure. 온라인카지노사이트
