Geelong-Korea Baseball

In conjunction with the Victorian Government, Baseball Australia are proud to announce that the Australian Baseball League’s first expansion team – branded as ‘Geelong-Korea’ will be based in Geelong for the upcoming ABL season.

Geelong-Korea will play alongside the Adelaide Bite, the Melbourne Aces and the Perth Heat in the 2018/19 ABL’s Southwest Division.

Games in Geelong
Round 2: 22-25 Nov
Round 4: 6-9 Dec
Round 5: 13-16 Dec
Round 7: 27-30 Dec
Round 10: 17-20 Jan

The inclusion of Geelong-Korea is a significant moment for the sport in Australia. Not only does Geelong-Korea give Geelong a professional sporting team, it gives the city unparalleled exposure into the Asian market.

Every single game Geelong-Korea play in Geelong will be broadcast to millions of baseball viewers all over the world, enabling Geelong to have a truly global audience.
Geelong-Korea had a number of high quality offers from various regional centres, but ultimately the strength of the community, the superb grassroots link and the impressive baseball complex secured Geelong’s place in the ABL.

To base a team in a grassroots focused area such as Geelong is an enormous opportunity for the elite side of the Australian game to work closely with the next generation of ABL stars.

Geelong is a passionate sporting town, and we are excited to bring the ABL’s first ever expansion team to Regional Victoria.
