The construction of a dome stadium in this abnormal climate is welcome, but where is LG Doosan? 6 years of wandering, is this possible?

 Jamsil Baseball Stadium is being transformed into a multi-cultural space.

A major league-class, state-of-the-art dome stadium linked to a luxury hotel will be built.

The Seoul Metropolitan Government announced on the 18th that it will build a ‘Sports and MICE Complex’, a waterside ecological cultural space connected to the Han River, including a dome stadium in Jamsil, Songpa-gu, by the end of 2031.

Like Ryu Hyun-jin’s home stadium, Rogers Center in Toronto, plans are being made to link it with a hotel and allow people to watch the game from their rooms.

Seoul Smart MICE Park Co., Ltd. (main company Hanwha Co., Ltd., tentative name), the preferred negotiating partner for the Jamsil Stadium/MICE complex project, is planning to begin dismantling existing facilities, including Jimsil Baseball Stadium, in 2026 and construct a dome stadium to be completed by the end of 2031.

토토사이트 It is the largest closed dome stadium in Korea with more than 30,000 seats that can accommodate international competitions. Large-scale performances and events can also be held during the ‘All-Star Break’ and off-season. The hotel in the dome stadium has 300 rooms, and 120 premium rooms with a view of the baseball field are planned to be built. The construction cost is expected to cost approximately 500 billion won.

It is expected that various premium seats will be provided, including a 360-degree open concourse (corridor space connected to the spectator seats) that circulates between the inner and outer fields, skybox, field box, and family zone.

Considering that it has been difficult to proceed with the season normally due to the recent abnormal climate and frequent rainy season, the opening of the Jamsil Dome Stadium is a welcome event.

However, the problem is the problem of measures during construction.

The LG Twins and Doosan Bears, who use Jamsil Baseball Stadium as their home, have nowhere to go.

Gocheok Sky Dome and Mokdong Baseball Stadium are being discussed as temporary alternatives, but it is not a simple problem. Gocheok Dome is used as the home of Kiwoom Heroes.

Traffic control is not easy.

The issue of using Mokdong Baseball Stadium, which is used for high school and college baseball after the Dongdaemun Baseball Stadium disappeared, is also not simple. In reality, even night games at Mokdong Baseball Stadium are restricted due to constant noise and light pollution complaints from nearby apartment complexes.

LG and Doosan Baseball Team are long-time customers of Seoul City, having used Jamsil Baseball Stadium for a long time.

The problem with the home stadiums of the two professional baseball teams is not a simple corporate issue. This is a problem for many baseball fans who support the two popular teams. This is a situation where you could end up wandering around temporary stadiums for as long as six years.

The opening of a state-of-the-art dome stadium in Jamsil is a welcome event. However, when pursuing large-scale projects, careful consideration is needed, including preparing alternatives based on current reality.

It is not a matter of convenience for the two corporate teams, LG and Doosan.

Careful administrative planning is needed that takes into account the ever-increasing number of baseball fans.

We need to look back and see if it was a hasty decision with no alternative due to the flashy wartime administration. Even if it takes time, it is necessary to first prepare realistic measures to fill the six-year gap. This is an issue that requires close consultation with our customers, the LG Twins, Doosan Bears, and the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO).
