Why Jamsil Baseball Stadium is special ?

Jamsil Baseball Stadium is opened in 1982, Jamsil Baseball Stadium is Korea’s first baseball stadium. It is also the site of victory for the Korean national team when they claimed the championship title of the Baseball World Cup that same year. Jamsil Baseball Stadium also hosted the baseball events during the 1988 Summer Olympics and with a total area of 26,331 square meters, the stadium features the longest distance (100 to 125 meters) between the home base and the outfield fence in Korea. Many foreign tourists make regular visits and enjoy experiencing the ardent fervor and cheering of Korean baseball fans.


Jamsil Baseball Stadium is not only a place for baseball fans; it is a popular destination for young couples and families on a day out.

What to explore at Jamsil Baseball Stadium?

Jamsil Baseball Stadium is the home of two teams from the Korean Professional Baseball league, the LG Twins and the Doosan Bears . Tickets are available at the team websites or at the Ticket Link website. Purchasing tickets on the Ticket Link website requires membership registration.

Tickets may also be purchased at the stadium. The ticket offices can be easily reached from exit 5 of Jamsil Station (subway line 2). There are four ticket offices, the central office and three smaller offices, each of which is divided into on-site sales and reservation-only windows. Since most visitors make advance reservations online, only outfield seats are usually available when purchasing a ticket on site.

The best time to enjoy Korean baseball is during the Korean Series (the championship series of the post-season play-offs), from September to October, when the cheering of the crowds is even more intense and baseball fever is hotter than ever.

Fun way to spend an early evening watching baseball. Sections with cheerleaders are quite loud so younger kids might not like it. Reasonably priced, especially outfield seats.

From 2013-2015, I have been to probably 30+ baseball games at Jamsil to cheer for my beloved Doosan Bears! Some of my favorite memories in Korea have been at this stadium. I've made many friends at the stadium and experiencing a baseball game here is like no other place on Earth. Is this the best stadium? No way. I would give the stadium itself probably 2 stars. But it is the overall experience that you will remember. The fans are the most passionate I've ever seen, constantly cheering, dancing, and celebrating. I was once at a terrible game where the Bears were down 17-0 in the 9th inning and yet the fans were still cheering as if they had a chance to come back and win. Unbelievable! Tickets range from 8,000won (general admission outfield) to 15,000won (infield and cheering sections). You can get table seats behind home plate, but I don't recommend them since you will be away from all of the excitement in the cheering sections. The best section to be in or near are 207 and 307 since that is the heart of the cheer section for the home teams. The stadium is home to both the Doosan Bears and the wretched LG Twins. Both teams' fans sit on the 1st base side. Away team fans sit on 3rd base side. If you are coming to Korea for vacation between March and October, I highly recommend you fit in a Korean baseball game. It is often overlooked on must-do lists for Seoul, but I guarantee you it will be a cherished memory. For example, my 78 year old mother came to visit for about 12 days and she said the Bears game was the highlight of her trip! Even if you are not a fan, you will have a blast.
