Hiroshima Peace Stadium – construction description
How is the construction of the new stadium for Sanfrecce Hiroshima progressing?
The construction of a new stadium for Sanfrecce Hiroshima has been planned since the early 2000s, but for a long time it was not possible to bring it to fruition. The location for the future stadium was only finally chosen in February 2019. In 2020, the first site preparation works started.
On March 31, 2021, the main contractor (a consortium of eight entities led by Taisei Corporation) was selected and the actual construction of the stadium started on February 1, 2022. The work is expected to be completed in December 2023, so that the facility will be available from the start of the 2024 season. The construction cost is estimated at 27.1 billion yen.

The new Sanfrecce Hiroshima stadium will have a football-specific layout and will accommodate 30,000 spectators. The stands will surround the pitch on all sides and are to be divided into two tiers along the pitch, with an additional narrow middle tier. The facility will receive a customised parabolic roof, symbolising 'wings of hope'.
The stadium will be equipped with VIP boxes and seats, catering facilities, as well as restaurants, shops and other amenities to make it an attractive place to visit even outside match days. The venue will be built in the city centre, next to the Hiroshima Green Arena and Hiroshima Castle, not far from the Atomic Bomb Dome.
