The game was scheduled to start at 6:00 p.m., so we arrived at the stadium at 4:30 p.m.
The gates were already open, so there was no need to wait in line to get in.

(2) Temperature check
(3) Luggage inspection

This is only the second time I've watched a professional sports game at Corona Damascene, following Omiya in the J-League, so I only have the Ardija to compare it to. But at Yokohama Stadium, some of the concession stands were open for business.

At the J-League stadiums, each seat was marked with a sticker saying "Do Not Sit", but at Yokohama Stadium, the style of the stadium was to let people sit in the seats they had voluntarily purchased, and there was no particular sticker asking people not to sit in the seats.

With no fans in the outfield stands and only the infield seats attracting people, the atmosphere in the stadium looks like the picture below.
