Will women’s volleyball open the era of 300,000 spectators for the first time in history?

In the V-League, which was launched in 2005, the women’s division has been overshadowed by the popularity of the men’s division for more than 10 years. From the 2017-2018 season, the men’s and women’s divisions will be held separately even in areas where the men’s and women’s divisions share the same area (Seoul, Incheon, Daejeon, Suwon), and from the 2018-2019 season, the women’s division will be held at 7:00 pm, the same as the men’s division. There were many eyes that doubted whether they could show spontaneous popularity.

it was raining Women’s volleyball caught the attention of fans with the appearance of several players with both visual and skill, and as the myth of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics quarterfinals became a catalyst, the popularity of the men’s division is now surpassing. In the 2022-2023 season, with the return of Kim Yeon-kyung, the ‘Volleyball Empress’, to the V-League, the ranking fight is fierce enough to increase the possibility of the first semi-playoff in history, recording the best box office performance ever.

On the 12th, the women’s division, including the GS Caltex-KGC Ginseng Construction match at the Jangchung Gymnasium, sold out 14 times this season. The men’s division has never sold out this season. As of the 13th, the number of spectators in the women’s division was 234,399 in 96 games, already exceeding the 226,498 in the 2018-2019 season. At that time, it was recorded in a total of 90 games with 6 clubs 메이저사이트. The average number of spectators in the 2018-2019 season is 2517, which is the highest ever. With an average of 2,442 admissions this season, the women’s division is ranked second in history since the women’s division played separately, and considering that there are 30 remaining games, it is expected to open the era of the first 300,000 spectators even if calculated arithmetically.

The fact that the ranking competition intensifies toward the end also raises expectations for an increase in the number of spectators. Heungkuk Life Insurance added to Hyundai Engineering & Construction’s solo system, and as of the 13th, the difference between the two teams was only 1, so it is expected that the direction of winning the regular league will be overshadowed only at the end of the season.

In addition, with the establishment of Pepper Savings Bank last year, a semi-playoff was introduced in the women’s division (held when the difference in points between 3rd and 4th places is 3 or less), and spring volleyball became possible up to 4th place, sparking the ranking fight. As of the 13th, while the 3rd place road construction is slightly ahead with 44 points, KGC Ginseng Corporation (41 points) and GS Caltex (39 points) are closely attached, so the first semi-playoff in history seems possible. IBK Industrial Bank of Korea (34 points) still has the possibility of spring volleyball, so if up to 4 matches take place, the box office wind can get stronger.
