Hiroshima Carp Baseball Preseason Starts in March

Tickets for 6 of Hiroshima Carp’s 2021 preseason baseball games to be held at Mazda Stadium go on sale at 10am on February 24.

Only reserved seating is available and capacity will be limited to 50%, or 16,000 fans, in alignment with the Hiroshima City governments COVID-19 control measures announced at the end of November 2020.

Tickets will not be on sale at the stadium itself, only available through the tortuous Carp website (prior registration required) and at LAWSON convenience store ticket machines, as well as online through LAWSON.

The Carp will be warming up against the Yakult Swallows, the Nippon Ham Fighters and 2020 Japan Series champions, Fukuoka’s Softbank Hawks.
