Message from the President

Seibu Lions, Inc. is positioned as the public face of the Seibu Group, which is involved in a wide range of business areas, including the Urban Transportation and Regional Business, the Hotel and Leisure Business, and the Real Estate Business, etc. Focusing mainly on the professional baseball business of the Saitama Seibu Lions team, we deliver multi-faceted excitement and entertainment to our customers.

In March 2021, large-scale renovation work on the dome area of the BELLUNA DOME, which had taken over three years, was completed. Various new training facilities were added for the Saitama Seibu Lions’ players, and existing facilities were substantially overhauled, creating an environment which can help optimize performance for the team and usher in a new period of success for them. In addition, to enable spectators to watch ballgames in even more comfort, the BELLUNA DOME, which is the Saitama Seibu Lions’ home stadium, has had all of its seating refurbished, for example with the creation of a lounge at the home plate area. Ancillary facilities such as the children’s plaza have also been expanded, and the stadium has been reborn as a first-class ballpark.

In recent years, we have accelerated the growth of our facility management business, which involves using the BELLUNA DOME to host not only professional baseball games, but also concerts and other special events. We are also making effective use of various facilities and infrastructure that the upgraded ballpark now features to host our own events.

Going forward, Seibu Lions, Inc. aims to be a company that continues to be loved by both Saitama Seibu Lions fans and local residents, in line with the Seibu Group slogan of “Smiles ahead.” We will also continue to challenge ourselves to generate powerful enthusiasm together with Saitama Seibu Lions fans, and to generate new kinds of excitement, through baseball and entertainment, in line with the company’s corporate vision of “Be strong together, be enthusiastic together.”

Professional Baseball Business: Saitama Seibu Lions

Saitama Seibu Lions is a professional baseball team that has been based in Tokorozawa City, Saitama Prefecture since 1979. “Saitama,” the name of the region where the team is located, was added to the name on January 1, 2008, to promote closer links with the local community. As the Saitama Seibu Lions, the team aims to be a team that is loved by its fans and closely integrated into the community.
If one includes the team’s previous existence as the Nishitetsu Lions, it has been the Pacific League champion 23 times, and has won the Japan Championship Series 13 times; no other team in the Pacific League can match either of these achievements.

Facility Management Business: BELLUNA DOME

BELLUNA DOME is a baseball stadium situated within the beautiful natural environment of the Sayama Hills. As the home of the Seibu Lions since 1979, this is a historic stadium that has seen many famous victories and defeats. Dome construction was undertaken at the stadium from the 1997 off-season through into the 1998 off-season. This was the first construction project of its kind in the world in which a roof was built over an existing baseball stadium. In 1999, the new stadium was born, embodying a brand-new concept that overturned conventional baseball stadium design, with an innovative design that combines features from indoor and outdoor stadiums.
In March 2021, a large-scale, three-year renovation of the dome area was completed, with the aim of making effective use of the beautiful natural scenery surrounding the stadium and of its unique partial dome, utilizing the space outside the roof to create a sense of openness and make this a ballpark in which spectators can enjoy the sights of the changing seasons. The transformed, reborn stadium is a ballpark that everyone can enjoy.
