The heat of ‘Gudo Busan’ is getting hotter amidst the promotion of the Lotte Giants. All tickets were already sold before the game even started.
A Lotte official said, “All seats have been sold through reservations” ahead of the second game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League weekend home game against SSG Landers at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 20th. Currently, only some cancellation tickets are sold on-site.
In this SSG and weekend series, Lotte held a ‘Busan Series’ event wearing camellia uniforms symbolizing Busan. In particular, the game on the 20th was a day when all spectators entering the game were given a low-end camellia uniform on a first-come, first-served basis. Of course, the fans couldn’t help but be interested.
The recent rise of Lotte also played a part here. As of the 20th before the game, Lotte recorded a season win rate of 0.647 (22 wins, 12 losses) and proudly took the lead. Lotte, which ran 9 consecutive wins from the end of April to the beginning of May, continued its momentum recently. Lotte, who finished 3 consecutive home matches against Doosan earlier with 2 wins and 1 loss, kept the lead by achieving a consecutive winning series in 6 consecutive away matches against KT and Hanwha.
Lotte’s changed appearance attracted many fans to the Sajik Baseball Stadium. 19,011 tickets were sold for the previous day’s game as well, which was the largest number of spectators for a home game excluding Saturdays and Sundays this season. After winning 7-5, coach Larry Sutton (53) also said, “Many fans cheered with fervent cheers at the baseball field, giving the players even more strength. I sincerely thank the fans.”안전놀이터
Here, the game on the 20th was completely sold out. Lotte is informing fans of the current situation by hanging a banner with the phrase ‘sold out’ in the aisle in front of the box office at Sajik Baseball Stadium.
