Machida Athletic Stadium – stadium description
Known perhaps better as Nozuta Stadium (due to its location in Nozuta Park), this venue exists since 1990. It constantly serves as tournament venue for academic competitions in athletics, also hosting matches in its first years, but not regularly.
Anchor tenant team Zelvia moved in when it started growing in early 21st century. Being promoted year after year, Zelvia started applying to J.League Division 2 in 2010, but failed to meet stadium requirements.
Since then renovation works have been ongoing with new floodlights in 2010, new seats and finally a much unexpected office building in 2012, between the running track and main grandstand – this one holds player, media and officials facilities and was only temporary. Behind it works were ongoing with massive expansion of the main stand, opened already in 2012.
