In the 2022-2023 season V-League, while there was a case that broke the record for the highest viewership rating in one game, there were a number of encouraging indicators, such as returning to 500,000 spectators four years after the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) pandemic.
This season, 133 games (126 regular league games and 7 postseason games) were played side by side in the men’s and women’s divisions. According to the Korea Volleyball Federation (KOVO) on the 13th, the average viewership rating was 0.62% for men and 1.23% for women, totaling 0.92%. The combined average viewership decreased by 0.04% compared to the 2021-2022 season, but it is necessary to consider that the women’s postseason at the time was canceled due to Corona 19. In detail, the average viewership rating for the regular league was 0.57% for men and 1.16% for women, a combined 0.86%.
Among them, the 5th round of the women’s champ, which took place on the 6th at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon, broke the record for the highest viewership rating in a single game with 3.40%. Even if the range is expanded to the men’s division, it is the highest rating. The previous record was 2.67%, recorded in the 3rd round of the Korea Expressway Corporation-Heungkuk Life Insurance Championship in the 2018-2019 season. In the men’s division, 2.64% from the 3rd match between Korean Air and Hyundai Capital in the 2017-2018 season is the highest. This season, Kim Yeon-kyung (35)’s Heungkuk Life Insurance, who drove a cloud crowd, is included in the top 5 in the highest viewership ratings for a game in both men and women’s divisions this season.바카라사이트
It is also encouraging that the number of spectators recovered after Corona 19. This season, 100% spectator admission was possible, but since the 2018-2019 season, 500,000 spectators have been restored. Before season 4, there were 324,682 men, 251,064 women, and 575,746 overall. Since then, the number of spectators, which stayed between 200,000 and 300,000, rose to 214,178 men, 347,267 women, and 561,445 overall this season. Compared to the pre-pandemic of Corona 19, males decreased by about 34%, while females increased by about 38.3%.
