Opened in 2001. it is able to hold a maximum seating capacity of 53,738 spectators.
What makes this Sapporo Dome special is that it is able to switch from a baseball field to a football field within an afternoon!
How to they go about doing this:
- First, they store the baseball field's artificial turf and retract the baseball plates into the ground till it becomes a flat surface.
- Next, the seats at the lower rim are shifted and rotated to enable the football field to be slot in.
- Once done, the football field is slid into the stadium, and conversion of the baseball field to a football field is completed!
Due to the retraction of seats, the stadium has a capacity of only 40,476 for the games.
