    Without saying a Word and Albi was home stadium. We had become the demon's Gate of up over the years, but this year the firm win. Gourmet quality comfortable spectator environment. The area around is healing in a vast park full of water and the many squares and green spaces. So envious. Personal use, no events are available at the stadium as possible, like running track next time. And be able to visit again next year is better.

    J-League soccer match. This game is a seating capacity of about 43,000 people around 24,000 people. Many of the always AP going by bus from Jr Niigata station frequent admission, smoothly. Think you buy liquor and beer 100 yen deposit 710 yen and kinda high but well do these kind of things. The thing with Sapporo breweries limited. That unseen electric Board sees the always AP is far better in a good stadium. Thank you for return transport of the Niigata Kotsu Bus,.

    Capacity approx. 43000 people completed in 2001 (0/2001), the 2002 Korea-Japan FIFA World Cup Stadium. Also used as the home ground of Albirex Niigata. Cheap rates and also we rent also the General event, not much else is.
