World class rugby action live!
Tickets for the Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium in Tokyo are a no-brainer if you are looking to watch some world-class rugby action. This high-tech stadium is the world-famous home training and tournament arena for Japan’s professional Sunwolves Rugby team. The venue takes its name from the late Japanese royal ‘Yasuhito, Prince Chichibunomiya’. Rugby fan Yasuhito was instrumental in bringing the sport of rugby to Japan and so the Stadium was renamed to honour him, upon his tragic passing at the age of 50 from pneumonia, in 1953. A statue of the late Prince stands in memory of him at the Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium. The Prince left an amazing legacy behind him as the Japanese presence in the sport of rugby has been a huge success. Now mostly used for rugby sevens and rugby union matches, the Stadium is a popular choice for live and television audiences of all ages.

New beginnings and new audiences!
Following demolition for parking at the 2020 Games in Tokyo, a plan was agreed to completely rebuild the venue in place of the former baseball stadium known as Meiji Jingu. The brand new stadium plans feature the very latest technological advances to enhance both live and television audience experiences. The first professional rugby game to ever to be played at night took part at the Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium on 2007 when the Japan rugby team took on the mighty Asian Barbarians. The sport being played under lights then enabled the Western world to enjoy live Asian rugby games and many now take place to suit the Western time-zone. In addition to 2020, Japan was the proud host for the 1964 Games, which then saw the Stadium being used to host the football tournament section. The Stadium has also played host to the exciting and fast-paced HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.
