Incheon is boiling again. In the 2022-23 season, the ‘Feast of the Stars’ will be held at the home stadium of Heungkuk Life Insurance, Kim Yeon-kyung’s team.
The Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) held the 19th 2nd board meeting on the 19th and selected the venue for the V-League All-Star Game to be held on January 29th next year.
KOVO said, “We carefully reviewed the pros and cons of each city for the All-Star Game candidate site, and held the All-Star Game at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon, which has easy access to fans thanks to its location adjacent to a subway station and other transportation infrastructure, and has about 6,000 spectator seats for many fans to watch. The final decision was made with the key.”
Every game at Samsan World Gymnasium this season is hot. This is because ‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung returned to Heungkuk Life Insurance. On the 13th of last month, all 5,800 spectator seats were filled at the Korea Expressway Corporation. 메이저놀이터
The Samsan Gymnasium is expected to heat up with the all-star game, in which not only Kim Yeon-kyung but also V-League star players are all out. Once again, 10,000 spectators are expected.
On the other hand, KOVO also selected and announced the priority negotiation area for hosting the cup competition, which is a box office hit every year.
KOVO “prepared the evaluation criteria for the selection of host municipalities and formed a committee to conduct the evaluation. As a result, Gumi City, which has Gumi Park Chung-hee Gymnasium, which can accommodate 6,200 spectators, was selected as the preferred area for negotiation as the new venue for the KOVO Cup.” That’s it. The federation plans to finish the selection process as soon as possible.”
Gumi City was used by LIG Insurance (KB Insurance) as a home base from 2005 to 2017. If Gumi City is selected as the final host city, it will be reunited with the V-League through this cup competition after about six seasons since March 2017, the last game of the 2016-17 season.
