I'm not a soccer fan but seeing my first soccer game at Big Swan was fun. The stadium is a big part of Niigata's skyline and provides a dramatic backdrop to Toyano Park with its undulating white domed roof

Went to watch a soccer game. Fantastic venue for spectators to get good views of the field and the players. Ample parking. Enthusiastic fans whose passion for their city is infectious.
