Hiroshima Municipal Stadium (広島市民球場 Hiroshima Shimin Kyūjō?), often called MAZDA Zoom-Zoom Stadium Hiroshima (MAZDA Zoom-Zoom スタジアム広島 Matsuda Zūmu-Zūmu Sutajiamu Hiroshima?), is a baseball stadium in Minami-ku, Hiroshima, Japan. It is used primarily for baseball and is the home of the Hiroshima Toyo Carp of the Japanese Central League. The ballpark has a capacity of 32,000 people and opened on April 10, 2009. It replaced First Hiroshima Municipal Stadium and initially retained the old ballpark's official name. The stadium architecture is considered to resemble an American-style[1] retro-classic ball park.

Naming RightsEdit

On November 6, 2008, Hiroshima City gave Mazda Motor Corporation naming rights to the stadium. In October of that year, Mazda proposed to call the stadium "MAZDA Zoom-Zoom Stadium Hiroshima" for the period between April 1, 2009 and March 31, 2014. On December 24, 2008, Mazda entered into a contract with the City of Hiroshima regarding the stadiums name and made official the abbreviated name "Mazda Stadium (マツダスタジアム?)".
