About the Stadium
On game days, there are many stores outside the stadium selling various kinds of food and drinks. The team store also has a wide variety of apparel, goods, and other items.
Getting to the Stadium
From the east exit of JR Sendai Station, it takes about 30 minutes to walk straight to the stadium. On game days, there are many fans wearing team jerseys walking towards the stadium, so you won't get lost. As you can see in the picture below, the sidewalk is wide and comfortable to walk on.
The nearest station from the stadium is "Tsutsujigaoka Station" on the JR Sengoku Line. It takes about 10 minutes to walk from this station to the stadium. The trains run every 10 to 15 minutes, so if the weather is not good or it's too hot, you can take this option.
