Yomiuri intended to be based in Tokyo, but at that time there was a J-League standard stadium in Tokyo.Shinjuku OfNational StadiumSetagaya OfKomazawaThere was only.However, Komazawa said that the national stadium should not be the home of a specific team due to the J-League policy, but should be a neutral stadium where each team can hold games.MeguroIt is inNational Hospital Organization Tokyo Medical CenterAre in close proximitynoiseAnd by night lightingLight pollutionforNight gameSince it was impossible to hold it, it could not be held at the base.Therefore, it is unavoidablePowerTo homeVerdi KawasakiI decided to act as.

Ramos Rui,Chiura Miura,Nobuhiro Takeda,Go KitazawaVerdy Kawasaki, who had many star players at that time, won the J-League's first annual championship and achieved the annual championship the following year.However, at that time, Kawasaki City regarded the Todoroki Stadium as a park facility for citizens to use, and like the Kawasaki Stadium, it did little to make large-scale renovations, and on the grass of a pitch that was damaged by the Madara pattern (sand). Because it was a messy response such as painting the part), it ended up getting a bad reputation from fans as a stadium that was not like a popular team at that time.Over the next two years, the stadium was renewed to meet J-League standards, such as a stand with a capacity of 2 and an expansion of the pitch, but on the other hand, city executives said, "Kawasaki has an alternative team." He was making awkward remarks.At that time, the divergence between Verdy, who tried to continue to be a corporate sport even in the J League, and Kawasaki City, which was an innovative government, was remarkable, and at this point the idea of ​​"community-based" was not realized.
