Reporter Lee Jae-sang = The 2022-23 professional volleyball V-League All-Star Game, held in front of a full crowd for the first time in four years, is showing off a hot fever.
The V-League All-Star Game will be held on the 29th at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon from 2pm.
Fans’ love for volleyball could not be stopped even in the cold weather below freezing. Tickets for the All-Star Game, which went on sale from 1:00 pm on the 19th, sold all 6338 seats in less than a minute. It was a huge popularity that KOVO officials could not have expected.
When the stadium gates opened at 11:30 a.m. that day, many spectators flocked to Samsan Gymnasium.
The photo booth installed in the lobby of the stadium and the souvenir shop selling All-Star game-related goods were crowded with fans.
In particular, many fans gathered and formed a long line at the ‘Cobo 4 Cut’ booth using ‘Life 4 Cut’. Even though it was sold at a price of 2,000 won, fans were willing to open their wallets.
Female volleyball fan Kim Jin-hee (26), who visited the stadium, said, “I like Kim Hee-jin of IBK Industrial Bank the most. It was really difficult to get a ticket, but I’m going to enjoy it.”
Meanwhile, the V-League All-Star Game, which will be held on this day, is expected to attract a full crowd for the first time in four years.
In 2020 and 2021, the All-Star Game was not held due to the Tokyo Olympic qualifiers and the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19). 메이저놀이터
Last year, the All-Star Game resumed after three years and was held at Pepper Stadium in Gwangju, but due to the prevention of the spread of Corona 19, the number of spectators was limited to 2,850, half the capacity of the stadium.
This year, it is expected that more than 6,000 fans will come to the Samsan Gymnasium and shout enthusiastically.
This is the third largest ever after the 2006-07 season (Seoul Olympic Gymnasium, 7500 people) and the 2011-12 season All-Star Game (Suwon Indoor Gymnasium, 7112 people).
Meanwhile, the match will be divided into M-Star and Z-Star. In the 1st and 2nd sets, the women’s division will be played, followed by the Spike Serve Queen & King Contest and the Best Libero Contest. Through the preliminary round the day before (28th), all the players who will advance to the finals were covered.
After that, the 3rd and 4th sets will be played in the men’s division. After the All-Star Game is over, the MVP and ceremony award winners are determined through on-site voting by reporters.
