The welcome construction of Jamsil Dome, LG and Doosan suddenly take off… why?

Seoul City announces plan to build Jamsil Dome Stadium, which will be under construction from 2026 to 2031.
LG and Doosan are tasked with finding a temporary home stadium during the six seasons during the construction period.

 토토사이트The baseball world is in excitement as the Seoul Metropolitan Government announces plans to build Jamsil Dome Stadium.

Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon, who is on a business trip to North America, announced plans to build Jamsil Dome Stadium during a visit to the Rogers Center in Toronto, Canada on the 16th (local time).

The plan is to tear down the existing Jamsil Stadium in Seoul and build a closed dome stadium in its place, and it is reported that they are considering a plan to build a dome stadium in connection with a hotel.

The construction of Jamsil Dome itself is a welcome event.

Jamsil Stadium, which opened in 1982, has aged more than 40 years since it was built. Although some improvements have been made, Choo Shin-soo (SSG), who returned after decades of playing in the U.S. Major League Baseball, did not spare any criticism of the outdated Jamsil away locker room.

In addition, the KBO is having a hard time organizing a schedule due to frequent rain this season, but if a dome stadium is built again following Gocheok, the season can be run more stably. Even during the summer rainy season, spectators will be able to watch baseball in a more pleasant environment.

The problem is the period. According to the dome stadium construction plan announced by Seoul City, the construction period is from 2026 to 2031.

In this case, the LG Twins and Doosan Bears, ‘two families under one roof’ who currently h

Initially, LG and Doosan proposed to remodel and use Seoul’s Jamsil Main Stadium, located near Jamsil Stadium, as a baseball stadium during the construction period, but the city of Seoul showed reluctance for safety reasons and was suddenly forced to find a temporary home stadium.

As an alternative, a plan is being discussed for one team to have Gocheok Sky Dome as a joint home stadium with Kiwoom, or to reuse Mokdong Stadium, which Kiwoom used as its home stadium in the past when it was Nexen, but this is also not easy.

In particular, in the case of Mokdong Stadium, the facilities are worse than the current Jamsil Stadium, and lighting and noise issues are considered unsuitable for night games.

In fact, in the past, whenever Nexen played a night game, there were complaints from nearby residents due to noise. If professional baseball night games are held again, opposition from residents is expected to be strong.

In addition, a plan to temporarily jointly use stadiums in the metropolitan area, such as Suwon KT Wiz Park and SSG Landers Field, is also being discussed, but it is pointed out that it is unrealistic for the Seoul team to play home games in a place that is no different from an away game.

The two clubs, who were suddenly unable to avoid living in a rented room, plan to respond by forming a joint task force (TF) with the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO). Attention is focused on whether it will be possible to reach an amicable agreement with the Seoul Metropolitan Government.
