Miyagi Stadium

Venue Overview

The roof that covers spectator seating at the Miyagi Stadium was designed to evoke images of the crescent moon that adorned the helmet of Date Masamune, a 16th century feudal lord who reigned over an area that includes the present-day Miyagi Prefecture. The stadium is situated in the town of Rifu in Miyagi Prefecture and is mainly used to stage athletics competitions and football matches.
