Q&A Stadium Miyagi (Miyagi Stadium)

Q&A Stadium Miyagi (Miyagi Stadium) is a stadium that mainly hosts Japan's national soccer team matches. It also hosts concerts by popular artists.
The stadium is located in the Grandy 21 Miyagi Sports Park, which houses various facilities such as an arena and a swimming pool, in addition to the stadium.

Getting to the Stadium

The closest station to Q&A Stadium Miyagi is Rifu Station, not Sendai Station, by train. It is located in the middle of Sendai and Matsushima.

Rifu Station is about 4 kilometers away, so it is not practical to walk there.
Basically, the venue is accessible by car. However, for a stadium-level event, traffic congestion and not many parking lots are available, making the stadium difficult to access.

First of all, if you are looking for a parking lot, there are websites that allow you to reserve a parking lot in the vicinity in advance, so use such websites to reserve a parking lot for the day of the event.

Depending on the event, there may be a shuttle bus from Sendai Station, which may be the most convenient way to get there (there is also a shuttle to Rifu Station, but the number of trains is limited and there are no hotels near Rifu Station).

About the Stadium

Location: 40-1, Aza Tachi, Sugaya, Rifu-cho, Miyagi-gun, Miyagi
Capacity: 49,133
Opened: March 31, 2000

It is an athletic stadium type stadium with two tiers on the main side and one tier on the back stands.
Therefore, the front of the first tier seats may not feel like a good place to watch a soccer or other play, even though they are close.


There is no roof over the back of the goal.
In the case of the backstands, they are one tier, so if you value the roof in terms of weather, etc., the middle to back rows are more reliable.
In the case of the main grandstand, it is basically in the shade, but if you want to be protected from the rain, the side of the second tier is better.
