This year’s edition of the KBL’s hit product will be held in Daegu. The KBL started the event in the 2016-2017 season, and it is an annual basketball event that usually starts at 10 p.m. and ends after the game, where players from both teams and spectators ring in the New Year together. It became as popular as the All-Star Game and was even trademarked by the KBL in 2020.
However, the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 seasons were canceled due to COVID-19. It was held for the first time in three years last season when distancing measures were relaxed. It was held at Wonju General Gymnasium and featured Wonju DB and Jeonju KCC, and was highly anticipated as it was Heo’s first visit to Wonju after his transfer. The 4,100 seats were sold out, and the KBL’s first indoor drone show was held, making a spectacular comeback.
Normally, the Basketball Youngshin is held for two years, with the teams playing each other at home and away. Given this, it was time for the event to be held in Jeonju, the home of KCC.
“I know that KCC said they wanted to play (basketball) since they moved their gym,” said an official. A KCC official also said, “We started talking about it last year when we were doing basketball tumbling. We said that we would do it in DB first, and then in Jeonju when we have a new gym,” explaining why the event will not be held in Jeonju this year.
Although Jeonju Gymnasium has a good location, it is a very old gym, and Jeonju is building a new gym.
As a result, the tournament will be held in Daegu, with Daegu KOGAS facing off against Ulsan Hyundai Mobis. Last season’s big events, the All-Star Game and Basketball Spirit, were held in Suwon and Wonju, respectively, making it difficult for fans from Gyeongsangbuk-do and Jeolla-do to attend. This is a chance to quench their thirst.
“When we first came to Daegu, we organized the All-Star Game. This time, we wanted to create a unique and special experience for Daegu fans and local fans by holding a basketball festival.” A representative from Hyundai Mobis also said, “Several teams participated before us. We thought it would be a great opportunity, and when GASCO announced their intention to host the event, we joined them.”
