“Because of accommodation”… Doosan squad ahead of WC, stays in Daegu and heads to Changwon
The Doosan Bears team ahead of the final game stayed in Daegu and then moved to Daegu, not Changwon, where the wild card (WC) deciding game will be held.
This is because the location of the wild card match was only decided on the 17th, the end of the regular season, and it was difficult to find accommodation because the 15th Asian Shooting Championships were held in Changwon.토토사이트
Doosan will play the first wild card match against NC Dinos at Changwon NC Park on the 19th.
When playing an away game, it is common to travel to the relevant area a day in advance. Originally, the Doosan team would have arrived in Changwon on the 18th, stayed for a day, and then played the game.
However, on this day, the starting point for the Doosan team was Daegu.
Doosan was placed 5th in the regular season after losing against Jamsil SSG Landers on the 16th. The location of the wild card match was decided only on the 17th, the last day of the regular season. This is because SSG’s 3rd place and NC’s 4th place were finally decided on the 17th.
After 5th place was decided, we searched for accommodations for the players, including hotels used during the regular season, in Changwon, where NC’s home stadium is located, and Incheon, where SSG is based.
However, it was not easy to suddenly find accommodation for 50 people. In addition, the Asian Shooting Championships will be held in Changwon starting on the 22nd of this month. With over 1,100 people from 30 countries visiting Changwon ahead of the competition, there were no available hotels.
Even though I searched all the way to Busan, which was the closest place, I couldn’t find a place to stay for the players.
Since there was some room in the lodging originally used during the Daegu expedition, the Doosan team decided to stay in Daegu for one day on the 18th and then move to Changwon. The away team’s pre-game training began at 4 p.m., and they departed from their lodgings at 2:40 p.m. accordingly.
A Doosan official said that even if SSG had ranked 4th, it would not have been able to find accommodation in Incheon. “We couldn’t find accommodation in Incheon either, so we tried to travel back and forth from Jamsil if SSG ranked 4th,” he explained.
