Yurtec Stadium Sendai is the home of Vegalta Sendai. The stadium is close to the nearest train station, so it is best to use public transportation to get there.
Getting to the Stadium
From Sendai Station, it is a 5-minute walk from Izumi Chuo Station using the Nanboku subway line. The area around the stadium is also home to shopping facilities such as "Ario," so it is an area with a lot of people, not just people going to watch a game. There are parking lots around Izumi-Chuo station, but considering the risk of not being able to park, it is more convenient to take the subway to the stadium than to drive.
