Past renovation work

At the start of the J League

1993At the start of the J-League, from Urawa City at that timeMitsubishi Motors Urawa Soccer ClubIs decided to enter.At the same time, a large-scale renovation work was carried out on the Komaba stadium, and the back stand, which was a lawn seat, was changed to a seat (the back of the goal was not repaired), four night game lights were installed, and an electric bulletin board dedicated to score display was installed. went.The capacity was about 4.

After that, the J-League pointed out that the capacity for holding the stadium as a base was less than the prescribed 15000 people, and Urawa City decided to resume the complete renovation of the stadium.1994With NICOS series (3rd and 4th rounds of the year)1995For the Suntory series (1st and 2nd rounds of the year), we decided to temporarily base ourselves on the Omiya Park soccer field, and expanded the main back stand (main stand with a roof, back stand with a double-layer stand). ) Change to a standing seat behind the goal, on the score bulletin boardAurora visionThe stadium will be reborn as a stadium that meets the J-League holding standards for 21500 people.

2010 renovation

2009The budget for the renovation work was set by Saitama City.2010From summer2011It will be implemented toward the end.

The ground of Komaba Stadium is said to be weak because it was built in a swamp.2002ToJapan Athletics FederationHas been revoked from official recognition.2008It was reported that the height difference of the track and field track was 19.5 cm at the maximum, and the Saitama Prefecture Athletics Federation and others continued to request repairs.In this renovation work, a "columnar improvement" method will be adopted in which a large number of piles are struck up to the hard ground 5-10 m underground to achieve both ground improvement and cost reduction, and in addition, the lawn surface and trucks will be renovated.Saitama City says that after the renovation work is completed, it will be officially recognized as a third-class athletics stadium and it will be possible to hold various athletics competitions at the prefecture level, and it is expected to be used in amateur soccer etc.[9].

On the other hand, with respect to the repair cost, which is expected to total more than 16 billion yen, it is almost impossible to hold J-League games, which are expected to attract large-scale customers, so professional soccer officials and the city council will secure profits commensurate with the investment. It is reported that the anxiety of[10].

For this reason,1992 J League Cupexcept1993The J-League has not been held in Komaba since the inauguration of the J-League for the first time, including the League Cup match.Along with this2010Published by J League as "Urawa Reds Headquarters"Fans guideThe introduction of this stadium that was posted in2011Was deleted, but2014In the "Pia J League Watching Guide <Fan's Guide Successor Official Magazine>" published, it is listed as the Reds' home stadium, although there is no match held.

Naming rights

In the administrative and financial reform promotion plan, Saitama City has decided to sell the naming rights of Komaba Stadium and auxiliary stadium for the purpose of maintaining facilities by sales and improving citizen services. In 2012, the city consulted with Mitsubishi Motors Football Club Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "Reds operating company"), which was the operating company of Urawa Reds at that time.The Reds have used it as a home stadium for many years, and accepted a consultation from Saitama City with the aim of contributing to the development of "Urawa, the city of soccer."[12], A basic agreement on the sale of naming rights was reached between the two parties on March 2012, 3.[13].

In response to this, the Reds management company publicly solicited names from April 2012st to 4th, 1, on the condition that the wording of "Urawa" or "Komaba" must be used. There were 20 applications, and the proposals using the names "Urawa", "Komaba", and "Urawa Komaba" were almost the same, and the presence or absence of "Reds" and "Red Diamonds" was almost the same.

The Reds management company has set up a naming rights selection committee and has set up the following four points as the concept for selecting naming rights.[12].

  • Make "Komaba" a bridge that connects the "past", "present", and "future" in soccer in Urawa
  • Make "Komaba" a base where "Urawa and Reds" and "citizen sports and professional sports" are fused
  • Along with efforts such as the 20th anniversary of Urawa Reds and the change of corporate name, we will re-cultivate the history and tradition of Urawa and build bonds.
  • Contributing to new growth by connecting to the development of "Urawa, the city of soccer"

Based on this concept, the selection committee said, "It is important for the Reds to show their attitude toward Komaba and their concrete efforts to realize it," and "Posting the Reds emblem on the stadium is the naming of the soccer club. Assuming that it is important for acquiring rights, the common name is "Urawa Komaba StadiumIt is decided to[12], Formal contract with Saitama City, has been using the naming rights name since June 2012, 6.The contract amount is 1 yen per year (including consumption tax, etc.), April 5,000,000, 2015[14]・ The 2018-year contract was renewed on April 4, 1 (current contract period is until March 3, 2021).[15].

In the future, we will focus on using it as the main base of Urawa Reds Ladies, and use it for games and practice as much as possible even in the subordinate organization. The company plans to promote efforts such as holding games and developing events so that it can be widely used by local residents and various sports organizations.[1].
