Fighters’ new home field is planned to inaugurate in March 2023.
Having a corporate philosophy that aims to create a “Sports Community,” our goal is not simply to build a new home stadium, but to implement a placemaking project in which our various stakeholders, including partners, fans and the local community come together to provide a place that gives back to the society.
With a size of 32 hectares, we aim to develop a co-creative community space where future generation live-entertainment coexists with the surrounding nature, well-being is enhanced through providing wellness solutions, and where various cultural activities flourish.
We hope that a diverse group of people, regardless of nationality, age, or gender, gather to F Village to live a better tomorrow. Together we aim to create a Ballpark that becomes a symbol of Hokkaido, the likes of which the world has never seen.
Senior residence and medical mall
A residence for active senior citizens with a medical mall will be developed in the southeast corner of F Village, aiming for completion in the spring of 2024. The project aims to play a role in maintaining the health of people of all ages, from youth to the elderly, and to contribute to local medical care.
Located in the center of F Village and connecting ES CON FIELD and its waterfront area, THE LODGE will serve as a base for information dissemination in F Village, where visitors can enjoy Hokkaido‘s rich natural environment through a variety of activities, and where new encounters and discoveries can be made. In addition to a store filled with local products where visitors can get to know the neighboring areas, the space will also serve as a tourism hub where visitors can experience outdoor activities and workshops and tour the surrounding areas.
Local Hokkaido materials are used throughout the building, with a gently gabled roof that reflects the majestic mountain range, and an exterior mainly made of Hokkaido-style red brick and Dounan cedar, in a design that blends well with ES CON FIELD. As a warm feeling building that blends in with the nature of Hokkaido, it will be a space where visitors can enjoy the changes in nature throughout the ages.
Fujii Building will build a total of nine private villas.
The private villas will be a private space where guests can occupy the building and grounds, and each building will be stylishly designed uniquely. There will be villas where you can enjoy a sauna while overlooking the new stadium, ES CON FIELD HOKKAIDO, as well as villas with a full range of facilities and amenities for you and your dog to spend a relaxing stay. Please enjoy your time with your family, friends, and pets at these private villas while feeling the nature of Hokkaido.
A Certified Childcare Support Center
Kids Labo Group will open a certified childcare support center in April 2023.
We would like to support families with small children by providing an environment where kids can freely and safely engage in various activities.
In a corner of F Village, on a site of approximately 3,500 square meters, an agricultural learning facility using Kubota's state-of-the-art agricultural technologies such as smart agriculture was born. Hokkaido University also participated as a technical exhibition partner. Please harvest, taste, and experience the seasonal vegetables grown in our two-story glass houses and open fields.
FIGHTERS LEGENDS SQUARE
The Plaza located in front of the 1st base side main gate is a symbol of continuity from the past to the future of the team. Hokkaido heritage “Ebetsu Bricks” engraved with the name of fans as well as players decorated the history of Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters are arranged in the center of the plaza.
To create opportunities for children to play many sports including baseball, we will construct a children's field of 30-square-meter next to the "playground" in F Village. We hope that a “future Fighter” will be born from the children who have played in the miniature version of the new ballpark.
ES-CON Japan Co., Ltd. decided to build a luxury apartment "Le Jade Hokkaido Ball Park" in F Village.
The two 14-story high-rise residences create a natural environment that matches the landscape of the entire F Village.
HOKKAIDO BALLPARK F VILLAGE
We have adopted “HOKKAIDO BALLPARK,” the term we have been using since the inception of the project, and “F” which resembles not only the “Fighters” but also several important concepts that we cherish such as “Fan,” “Future,” “Forest,” “Fun”, and “Fusion.” These elements are combined with the term “VILLAGE” which expresses our intension to develop an area/district through our project, as well as the star mark which is the symbol of Hokkaido.
A vision for F VILLAGE
With the desire to make F Village "a cozy place where people of all ages can feel the joy of living", we have established a vision for the district. At F Village, you can cultivate the vitality for tomorrow by feeling enthusiasm for live sports and entertainment, a human drama without scenario, and the fulfillment of your life. We will share the vision with various partners and continue to make F Village an even more attractive place.
Three main themes
Creating a cutting-edge game day experience utilizing technology.
Providing nature activities and the latest wellness solutions.
A place that celebrates community with sports at its core.
F Village, which is created through co-creation with partners, will continue to grow in stages even after its opening. Imagine what it will look like 10 or 20 years from now.

F Village will be promoting initiatives that contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). F Village will implement the three buckets of sustainable initiatives focusing on children, local community, and partnerships.

Sustainable Development Goals（SDGs）
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The 17 SDGs are integrated—they recognize that action in one area will affect outcomes in others, and that development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability.
