Why is Doosan staying in Daegu when Wakajeon is in Changwon?
The KBO concluded its regular season on Sunday. The five teams that qualified for the postseason are the LG Twins, KT Wiz, SSG Landers, NC Dinos, and Doosan Bears, and the final standings have been finalized.
However, the immediate concern is the wildcard matchup and the semi-playoff team housing. The fourth-ranked NC and fifth-ranked Doosan have a day off and will play the wild card deciding game at NC Park in Changwon on the 19th. But they don’t have a hotel.
From Nov. 22 to Nov. 2, the 15th Asian Shooting Championships will be held at the Changwon International Shooting Range, and more than 1,000 shooters from 35 countries around the world will arrive in Korea early and stay in hotels around Changwon.
While the home team, NC, had no problems, the away team, Doosan, was immediately under fire. This is largely due to the fact that they were unable to secure accommodation early due to the late ranking. Doosan’s ranking was determined on the 16th, 바카라사이트 but their opponents were finalized on the 17th. As a result, we had to wait until the 17th to secure accommodation in Changwon for the wildcard game, and all accommodation close to the stadium was ‘full booked’.
However, we can’t wait. Doosan players have to travel to Changwon on the 18th to prepare for the wild card game. Doosan’s on-site officials did their best to make arrangements, and in the end, a hotel in Daegu was chosen as the traveling accommodation. It is an hour and a half away from Changwon NC Park by team bus.
Doosan players will have to travel one and a half hours by bus to prepare for the first game of the wild card round on the 19th. Unfavorable conditions for conditioning. But there is no choice. We can’t force them to find accommodation on short notice, so there are limits to our ‘manpower’. This is the best we can do.
Even if Doosan and SSG had won the wild card match, they would have had trouble securing accommodation. Officials from both clubs had already checked out team housing in Jamsil and Incheon as a backup plan, but they were unable to make reservations. SSG even considered traveling to and from Incheon instead of staying near Jamsil if they had to play a wild card game against Doosan.
Securing accommodation for the semi-playoffs is also difficult. The semi-playoffs will be held in Changwon or Jamsil, with Changwon still affected by the shooting competition. This season, the KBO has been a fierce race to the finish, and the battle for third through fifth place has been nothing short of laughable.
While the joy of reaching the postseason is overwhelming, those involved in the field have their work cut out for them.
