Dome stadium plan in Busan for Lotte Giants
For more than 32 years, Busan’s Lotte Giants has been hosting their baseball games at Sajik Baseball stadium.
Yesterday, however, the city of Busan announced their mid-to-long term master plan for the construction of an open-type dome-shaped baseball stadium.
The planned dome would seat between 28,000 to 30,000 seats, and as an open-type dome stadium, it can be used for other events including concerts and conventions, from the current 80 day operation availability to up to 200 days of operation.
The city plans on finalizing the details to the construction plan after holding a public discussion forum with baseball fans, civic groups, and experts on the matter next month.
Busan will finalize the site selection and plan for the feasibility service in 2020, the basic and the design by 2022, construction in 2023 and completion in 2026.
Sites being considered for the stadium are at the current Sajik Sports Park, Gudeok Park, the planned BEXCO 2 in Gangseo-gu and at the North East Tourism Complex.
