The defending World Champions stay in the Super Round race. The WBSC Technical Commission moved the three Group B games from Taipei to Dou Liou. Defending World Champions Venezuela face a must-win against Germany.

The fifth day of the IV WBSC U-23 Baseball World Cup is underway in Taichung and Dou Liou.

The WBSC Technical Commission moved all Group B games from Taipei to Dou Liou because of inclement weather forecasts.

The Dou Liou Stadium is one of the 3 venues of the U-23 World Cup.
Douliou City is in Yunlin County, 220 kilometres south of Taipei City. As the island’s Central Weather Bureau reported, the area is less affected by the heavy rains caused by typhoon Nesat.
