Since the introduction of the promotion and relegation system, professional soccer K League 1 has continued its box office craze by surpassing 1 million spectators in the minimum game.
The match between Daejeon Hana Citizen and Incheon United (13,779) held at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the 4th, followed by the match between Daegu FC and FC Seoul (12,056) at DGB Daegu Bank Park in Daegu. 15,835 spectators came.안전놀이터
K-League 1, which attracted 979,134 spectators in 94 matches played until the previous day, achieved 1,004,969 spectators in 96 matches.
This is a new record for the minimum game attendance of 1 million since the 2013 season when the promotion and relegation system was introduced.
Previously, 108 games in the 2013 season was the minimum record.
Looking at the records since 2018, when only paid spectators were included in the crowd count, the power of crowd mobilization shown by this year’s K League 1 is even more surprising.
It took 185 games in 2018, 123 games in 2019, and 215 games in 2022 to reach 1 million spectators.
In 2020 and 2021, it was not possible to achieve 1 million spectators due to the influence of the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19).
K-League 1, which started the season on the tailwind of advancing to the round of 16 of the 2022 Qatar World Cup, is attracting crowds thanks to good news such as Daejeon Hana Citizen’s promotion team blast and FC Seoul, a popular club in the metropolitan area, flying high.
