  • In a J-League game comes once a year. It is one of the stadium is far away, but you want to come every year. Running track is out of the way, stand higher than the pitch so track in a stadium better? Beautiful curve of the roof steel personally favorite is.

  • It is convenient to go by bus from Jr Niigata station. Close bypass Benten Internet if you go by car. Car purchase parking tickets Albirex Niigata football games when you must. You can also use have a shuttle from the train station. Close to restaurant, hospital, supermarket, recently has become very useful.

  • It is the home stadium of Albirex Niigata. Do not match the number of seats and the number of customers from the popular reduction team, is almost empty at any time. It is possible to see in places but more or less if you buy a cheap seat. (If the seats) tracks, feel far away. Many toilet is clean, but the wind come through very cold experience. Around the Park crowded with many families not game day.
