While the Japanese archipelago, which is difficult to secure tickets for the Major League Baseball’s opening game “Seoul Series,” is paying attention every day, Japanese fans are pleased that the road is showing signs of opening.
Japan’s Sankei Sports and Sponichi Annex Sports reported on the 26th (Korea time), “The Major League and JTB, a large Japanese travel agency, have signed a partnership,” adding, “We will exclusively provide packages including tickets to the Seoul series.”
The Seoul Series is the opening game of the Major League Baseball at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul. The LA Dodgers and San Diego will face off, which will be held for two days from March 20-21. It is the first time that a major league game will be held in Korea.
There are many things to see. Ahead of this season, the Dodgers has taken a wild step. It signed a 10-year, 700 million-dollar contract with superstar Shohei Ohtani, and successfully caught Japanese ace Yoshinobu Yamamoto. It held the highest amount ever for a pitcher in the Major League at 320 million dollars for 12 years. Then, two Japanese pitchers joined the team.
There are more Korean and Japanese players in San Diego. Among the Korean players are Kim Ha-sung, who won the Gold Glove Award in the utility category last year, and Ko Woo-suk, who achieved his dream of entering the U.S. by signing a two-year, 4.5 million-dollar contract. Japanese players include Yu Darvish and Yuki Matsui, who became the youngest player to build the golden tower of 200 saves in the history of Japanese pro baseball last year.
There are as many as four Japanese players in both teams, so Japanese fans are paying a lot of attention.
Prior to the main game, an event game will also take place. In other words, the defending champion LG Twins, who achieved their dream of winning the title in 29 years last year, and Team Korea, which consists of Kim Ha-sung’s former team Kiwoom Heroes and young players, will serve as sparring partners between Dodgers and San Diego.
However, it is not easy for overseas fans to see the “Seoul Series” in person at this point. Coupang Play, which is in charge of ticket sales, has decided to sell it only to Coupang Wow members. It is a situation where a social security number or a Korean phone number is required. Therefore, it is not easy for overseas fans to purchase tickets. 마카오카지노
Japan and the U.S. also expressed regret over the ticket reservation situation. In particular, the U.S. “Bloomberg News” was concerned about the possibility of scalping tickets.
In this situation, hopeful news was delivered to Japanese fans. The Japanese travel agency has penetrated the method. The tour program will be held as it signs a contract with Major League Baseball.
Sankei Sports explained, “Japanese fans also have a way to watch it in Korea. Tour tickets will open in February.” Sponichianex explained in detail, “The package includes tickets, food and experience programs.”
