“The Major League Opening Game will be held here.” Gocheok Sky Dome is under internal construction at the request of MLB Secretariat

Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, the home stadium of the Kiwoom Heroes, is currently under internal construction.

This is due to the demand from the Major League Baseball 랭크카지노주소 (MLB) secretariat in the U.S. Major League Baseball (MLB). The company has a wide range of changes. It not only removed artificial grass inside and outside, but also repaired mound, fence and clubhouse facilities.

The MLB Secretariat designated Seoul as the official opening venue for the 2024 season in July last year and sent a due diligence team to inspect the facilities of Gocheok Sky Dome in August.

The secretariat demanded that the Seoul Metropolitan Facilities Management Corporation, which manages Gocheok Sky Dome facilities, needs a stadium environment that is capable of playing MLB games, and the Seoul Metropolitan Facilities Corporation accepted this and started extensive internal construction this winter.

The MLB Dodgers drew attention by introducing the image of Gocheok Sky Dome under construction on the 12th (Korea time) through the club’s social media.

Introducing photos of the exterior of Gocheok Sky Dome, internal construction of the stadium, electronic boards promoting the opening game, and Korean baseball fans posing with Dodgers hats and cheering tools, the team left a message saying, “See you soon, Seoul.”

A Kiwoom official said, “The stadium is currently being transformed extensively,” adding, “Our team is also looking forward to it.”

The opening series of the 2024 MLB regular season, in which the Dodgers and San Diego take on each other at Gocheok Sky Dome, will take place at 7:05 p.m. on Mar. 20-21. The game will be introduced throughout the U.S. on ESPN.

The opening series is also drawing great attention from Japanese fans as it is expected to be the regular league debut between Shohei Ohtani, a “superstar” who joined the Dodgers in the new season, and Yoshinobu Yamamoto, who set a new MLB pitcher record.

In San Diego, Kim Ha-sung and Yu Darvish play, and recently, Ko Woo-suk and Japanese pitcher Yuki Matsui joined. However, due to the small size of Gocheok Sky Dome, the opportunity to watch the game is expected to go to a small number of people.

Gocheok Sky Dome can only accommodate 16,000 spectators. It is also small among domestic baseball stadiums. As a result, there is a sign of a war to buy tickets. Tickets for the opening series of MLB Seoul seem to be difficult for active big leaguers to secure.

According to Tokyo Sports in Japan, Darvish recently said through a voice delivery application, “There are a lot of calls asking me to buy tickets,” adding, “I think it will be difficult to get it because the stadium is small.”

Japan’s Tokyo Sports also expressed high interest from Japanese baseball fans, saying, “Many travel agencies are receiving inquiries to purchase tickets for the opening series of Seoul.”
