On the 5th, the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) said, “Safety personnel such as Daegu Police Agency, Daegu Suseong Police Station, riot police, special forces, local police, detectives, special forces, etc. “We have strengthened safety management for spectators by placing them in and around this stadium.” On this day, a Samsung-LG match was held at the Daegu Samsung Lions Park in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’, and an article foretelling a riot with a weapon was posted in the ‘Cheer’ corner of the KBO’s official application.

KBO sent an official letter to each club on the 4th, requesting thorough preparation for crime and strengthening overall stadium safety management, such as strengthening security checks when entering spectators, deploying additional safety personnel, and strengthening cooperation with related organizations such as police and fire departments. This is a measure in response to the recent occurrence of heinous crimes targeting an unspecified number of people at Sillim Station in Seoul and Seohyeon Station in Seongnam City, Gyeonggi Province.

Accordingly, before the game on the 5th, each club strengthened measures for the safety of spectators, such as deploying their own security personnel. At Daegu Stadium, where the report was received, additional police personnel from the Suseong Police Station, the jurisdictional police station, were deployed along with the Samsung club’s own security manpower increase.

First of all, the game went ahead as scheduled, as no unusual incidents related to the crime were found. KBO said, “With the cooperation of the Samsung club and the police, the game ended normally without an accident, and the audience safely exited under the protection of security personnel.”

KBO emphasized, “We will continue to take all necessary measures to ensure the safety of spectators, such as strengthening security screening using metal detectors when entering the stadium, additional deployment of safety personnel, and strengthening cooperation with related organizations.”
