History and description

Kincho Stadium was built in 1987 to serve as venue for baseball, American football, and lower-level football.

In 2009, Kincho Stadium underwent a major renovation and subsequently Cerezo Osaka made the stadium their regular home. The stadium is currently undergoing further refurbishments.

Getting there

Kincho Stadium is located in Nagai Park in the south of Osaka. It lies right next to the bigger Nagai Stadium.

Kincho Stadium is situated about 11 kilometres south of central Osaka and Osaka Station. The stadium is easily reached with the Midosuji Line (M) of the Osaka metro. The Midosuji Line can be boarded at, for example, Umeda Station, which is right next to Osaka Station. The journey takes just over 20 minutes.

An alternative is taking a train on the JR Hanwa Line to Tsurugaoka Station, from where it is a short 5-minute walk to the stadium. You can catch a train at Tennōji Station or from a southern destination (for example Kansai Airport).
