Message from Fukuoka Softbank Hawks Corporation

“Although the 2020 NPB (Nippon Professional Baseball) season has started without any fans’ voices in the stadium, all players and staff are looking forward to seeing you again in the new stadium named Fukuoka PayPay dome. Our E-Zo Fukuoka, an entertainment complex in Kyushu, will finally open in July. I’m so glad to be able to see a lot of smiles there! Tough days no one has experienced may continue for a while, but we are waiting for you in Fukuoka! Stay safe, Stay with Hawks!”
