The schedule for the next season of professional baseball and the Pacific League has been announced, and the opening game on March 25, next year, will be held at the headquarters of Seibu, Softbank, and Rakuten.

The next season for professional baseball has been decided to start on March 25, next year for both the Central League and the Pacific League, and the detailed schedule for the Pacific League was announced on the 3rd.

Last year, the schedule was irregular due to the influence of the new Corona and the suspension period due to the Tokyo Olympics, but next season, 143 games including the interleague game will be held for the first time in three years.

The opening card was scheduled to be held at the homes of the top three teams Seibu, Softbank, and Nippon-Ham in 2018, but Rakuten will host the opening card instead of Nippon-Ham.

This is because Nippon-Ham has exchanged rights with Rakuten, which can host the opening card for the next year, as the new stadium is scheduled to open in March next year.

For this reason, in the opening game on March 25, next year, Seibu and Orix, who won the league this season, will be MetLife Dome in Tokorozawa City, Saitama Prefecture, Softbank and Nippon Ham will be PayPay Dome in Fukuoka City, and Rakuten and Lotte will be Rakuten Seimei Park in Sendai City. We will play in Miyagi.
