Oita Stadium "Big Eye" (Daigin dome)
The Big Eye is a world-class multi-purpose stadium, bursting with the shouts of 43,000 people. Experience a new dimension in international-level sports, concerts and other events. The stadium can be used for soccer, rugby, track & field and a host of other sports, along with concerts and exhibitions of all types. The wall curtains can be used to divide the stadium into sizes appropriate for 10,000 or 20,000 people, making it possible to flexibly meet the demands of events of all sizes. And It's an all-weather stadium with a sliding roof that opens and closes. In addition, the semitransparent roof lets in natural illumination even when closed, for a bright, natural playing field.
