FC Seoul, which raised the atmosphere to the fullest with the poetry of popular singer Lim Young-woong, continues its success with a super match this time.
Previously, Lim Young-woong appeared as a starter prior to the match between FC Seoul and Daegu FC in the 6th round of’Hana One Q K League 1 2023’ held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 8th.
In order to see Lim Young-woong, a reservation war broke out before the game, and eventually 45,007 people, the largest number of domestic professional sports spectators since Corona 19, gathered.
Even in the K-League, Lim Young-woong’s appearance was recorded as a historic event.스포츠토토
The largest crowd in K-League history was the match between Seoul and Seongnam held on May 5, 2010 at the Seoul World Cup Stadium, with 60,747 people. If it is limited to the era of paying spectators that started in 2018, it is the highest ever and far exceeded the previous record of the Super Match between Seoul and Suwon on June 16, 2019 (32,057 people, Seoul World Cup Stadium).
Thanks to the Lim Young-woong effect, FC Seoul is also laughing at the crowd mobilization this season. Seoul has played three home games so far and mobilized 29,253 per game, ranking first among the 12 K-League 1 clubs in average attendance.
In fact, Seoul ranks first in crowd mobilization every season due to its popularity and geographical advantage. However, the increase this season has been unusual. Last year, 29,000 people entered the Seoul World Cup Stadium, a 232.9% increase from 8,786 people in 19 home games, drawing a clear upward curve.
It’s not just Seoul. The number of spectators at the K-League stadium has clearly increased this season.
Ulsan, which won the championship last year, recorded 19,483 people per game, a 122.8% increase from last year, and Daejeon, which was promoted to the first division, boasts a huge fandom and is on a winning streak with an average audience of 14,851, a whopping 553.9% increase.
As a result, the average number of spectators in the entire K-League this season is 11,039, up 129% from last year, challenging the era of 10,000 spectators for the first time since counting the number of spectators.
A clear crowd increase effect is expected this week as well. This is because the ‘super match’ between FC Seoul and Suwon Samsung, traditional rivals of the K-League, will unfold.
An official from FC Seoul said, “Since more than 20,000 people have made reservations and there are on-site purchases on the day of the match, we expect this season to approach or exceed the average number of spectators (29,253).” It is a gathering of away fans. I hope that Seoul fans will also come together as cloud spectators and support us.”
