Extra stadium info – Sapporo Dome

The Sapporo Dome hosted 2002 FIFA World Cup matches for the national football teams of Argentina, Ecuador, England, Germany, Italy and Saudi Arabia. Football games at the venue are held on a grass pitch that slides into and out of the stadium as needed. Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo and the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters use the stadium for home games. The Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters won the Japan Series in 1962 for the first time in their history. Yu Darvish, one of the first baseball players in the world with 1 million followers on his main social media page, is one of their former players.
