Extra stadium info – Sapporo Dome

The Sapporo Dome is known as a venue for several events, like American football, baseball, concerts, football and rugby union. In 2002, it hosted FIFA World Cup matches for the national football teams of the Argentine Republic, Ecuador, England, Germany, the Italian Republic and Saudi Arabia. Football games at the stadium are held on a grass pitch that slides into and out of the sports venue 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.
