Due to the enormous attraction of the World Baseball Classic, due to the high level of competition and as a show, and taking advantage of the good performance that the national team has just given, it does not seem daring for the Venezuelan Baseball Federation to postulate the Monumental Stadium "Simón Bolívar” as a sub-venue for the next edition of the event.
The very high levels of television switching on during the last two dates of the CMP that ended yesterday, consolidated the World Baseball Classic as one of the sporting events with a very high audience, great fan attendance and a strong marketing impact.
Only in the match on Monday, approximately 93.6% of Japanese households tuned in to the game in which their team left Mexico on the field, to advance to the final against the United States.

Sports marketing experts consulted by the Sports Business Journal magazine, indicated at the beginning of the year that the Japanese economy alone was preparing to receive more than 400 million dollars in income during the two legs of the event scheduled in the Tokyodome, while the cities from Phoenix and Miami estimated figures close to $100 million.
These amounts alone indicate that, although it has not yet reached the levels of the Soccer World Cup, the World Baseball Classic has earned its space and in 2026 it will continue to grow economically and, probably, we can appreciate its quality on Venezuelan soil.
