Coupang Play broadcasts the 2024 MLB Seoul opening game
Coupang Play will broadcast the ‘2024 American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) regular season opening game’ to be held in Seoul on March 20th and 21st next year.
Coupang Play announced on the 1st, “We will broadcast live the MLB World Tour Seoul Series to be held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul next March,” and “We plan to exclusively live broadcast the entire process of the players’ arrival, practice games, and main games.”
The MLB Secretariat announced in July that the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers will hold the regular season opening game in Seoul on March 20-21, 2024.
In August, the MLB inspection team visited Seoul and inspected the Gocheok Dome facilities.
Next year’s opening game will be the first time an MLB game will be held in Korea.
The MLB Secretariat has decided to hold the 2024 regular season or event games in ‘countries other than the United States’ in order to globalize baseball.
In addition to the opening game in Seoul, the Colorado Rockies and Houston Astros will play in Mexico City, Mexico on April 28-29, and the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets will play in London, England on June 9-10.
During the spring training period from March 10th to 11th, the Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox will hold an event game in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
The ‘overseas match’ that attracts the most attention is the opening match in Seoul.
MLB.com also said, “It is the first time in five years since the 2019 Tokyo game in Japan that MLB has held its opening game outside of the United States,” and added, “When the opening of the Major League Baseball was delayed in the aftermath of the 2020 novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19), people were watching KBO League games online. “You can bring back memories. San Diego and Dodgers fans can also go on an unforgettable trip.”
The expectations of Korean baseball fans are high as San Diego, where Kim Ha-seong plays, and the Dodgers, where Park Chan-ho and Ryu Hyun-jin played, are holding their opening game in Korea. 슬롯사이트
