2. Outline of establishment of new corporate
For the past 3 years from July 2005, RedsLand has been provisionally managed by Urawa Reds. This time, we agreed to set up a new corporate paid 100% by Urawa Reds so that members and local people can enjoy sports in the facility and its hospitality.
It will offer transparency and strengthen organization control by differentiating the operating body from Urawa Reds. Also, it will aim to introduce unique sports in Japan and manage independently. Thus, RedsLand will play a role as corporate in Saitama City to help realize Urawa Reds’ philosophy and hold community based activities to contribute to the society.
*Although it is a new corporate, it will still remain under the management of Urawa Reds. Members can continue using the facility and service. There will be no change in membership fee, usage fee, terms and conditions at the moment.

＜RedsLand’s philosophy and policy＞
Urawa Reds opened the member based sports park, RedsLand located on the bank of River Arakawa in the west of Saitama City in July, 2005. Urawa Reds aim to realize the J.League’s philosophy, “J.League’s 100 year concept・・・we will have a happier country through sports” and build a community sports culture with this sports park.
Urawa Reds will promote the joys of sports, “to watch” and “to support”, at the stadium through entertainments. RedLand will work hard to provide facilities and opportunities for people to play and learn sports. At the same time, it will help the younger generation towards healthy growth and people to have a life long hobby. It will also contribute to develop and promote a sports culture.
On a 140,000m2 site where you can relax and enjoy nature, we will improve the sports land together with its members and local community. We will have more programs to improve the communication between members and RedsLand.
One of the main purposes is to contribute to the local community through sports. Not only football fans but also other sports lovers can come to RedsLand and have fun. We will expand the circle of friendship from young to old.
