Ohtani, Darvish, and Murakami are said to be playing in one team, WBC Japan match ticket price skyrocketed from 230,000 won → 6.68 million won, the strongest dream team effect

As interest in the Japanese national team soared, ticket prices reacted. Seats that cost 24,000 yen (about 230,000 won) skyrocketed to 700,000 yen (about 6.68 million won). Sankei Sports, a Japanese sports magazine, reported on the 8th that ‘ticket prices for matches of the Japanese national team are rising abnormally’.

It is only natural that the best Japanese professional baseball players and super-special players from the major leagues form a national team to compete. The Japanese national baseball team, Samurai Japan, will be the strongest member of the World Baseball Classic (WBC). I set the goal of winning and prepared for a long time. The modifier ‘Dream Team’ is not awkward. It is evaluated as the strongest power of all time.

Tickets for the 1st and 2nd rounds in Tokyo are on sale. Tickets for the opening game against China in the first round on March 9 and the quarterfinals on March 16 have already been sold out. In this situation, tickets priced more than 20 times the normal price are being posted on ticket distribution sites.

According to Sankei Sports, seats for 24,000 yen were sold for up to 700,000 yen, and seats for 36,000 yen were sold for up to 550,000 yen. In addition to the official matches of the final round, tickets for the evaluation matches are also sold on the exclusive market. It is said that the secondary sales site allows up to 5 sales per person to prevent illegal resale.

The Japanese national team is scheduled to play two consecutive matches against the Softbank Hawks on February 25-26 in Miyazaki, a training ground, and two consecutive matches against the Chunichi Dragons at the Nagoya Dome on March 4-5.

Shohei Ohtani (29, LA Angels), Yu Darvish (37, San Diego Padres), Seiya Suzuki (29, Chicago Cubs), Munetaka Murakami (23, Yakult Swallows), Yoshinobu Yamamoto (25, Orix Buffaloes), Roki Sasaki (25, Orix Buffaloes) 22, Chiba Lotte Marines) will play in ‘one team’.

This is Ohtani’s first WBC appearance, which changed the history of the major leagues with the ‘two-way’ that combines pitcher and hitter. In 2017, when he was a member of the Nippon Ham Fighters, he was selected as a representative, but could not join due to injury. 토토사이트

Darvish is coming out 14 years after participating in the second tournament in 2009. In the 2009 tournament, he played as the finisher in the final against Korea and confirmed the victory in the 10th overtime.

He had no chance to play in Japan after moving to the major leagues. Darvish went to the major leagues in 2012 and Ohtani in 2018. The two from Nippon Ham achieved their dream through the posting system side by side. Due to the large age difference and the year of joining, I could not play for the same team. This is the first time we are together.

The two have a relationship with national team coach Hideki Kuriyama.

After the 2001 season, head coach Kuriyama took over Nippon Ham’s helm, and Darvish posted that winter. Coach Kuriyama has actively supported Ohtani’s double career since 2013, when he gave up directing to the major leagues and joined the team.
