Un-Chan Chung, Commissioner of the Korea Baseball Organization, said: “I am pleased that the KBO league will be introduced to a broader audience. In this uncertain time, I hope our league can be a role-model to the world of sports and become a favourite brand to baseball fans globally.”
As part of the agreement, ESPN and its affiliate partners will become the English-language home for KBO League live games and highlights for the 2020 season throughout the aforementioned territories. The deal includes the postseason and the Korea Series best-of-seven championship.
