The 'Golden Age' of Saitama Seibu Lions
Saitama Seibu Lions were originally known as Nishitetsu Clippers and, for much of their career, Nishitetsu Lions. The current name has only been in use since 2008, introduced in an attempt to bind the team more closely with their local prefecture of Saitama. It seemed to be a rewarding move - in the same year, the team came first in the Pacific League and went on to win the Japan Series for the first time in four years; ten years later they would top the league again. The record of recent years has still not been quite as good as the results from Saitama Seibu Lions' so-called 'golden age', which saw the team win the Pacific League eleven times between 1982 and 1994 and the Japan Series in an incredible eight of these seasons. The nickname 'Invincible Seibu' was well deserved, and many of the team's long-standing fans still hope every season for a return to these days of glory. Join them in the stadium to cheer on their beloved team with Saitama Seibu Lions tickets.
Take your place in Saitama Seibu Lions stadium
Based in Saitama prefecture, the stadium of Saitama Seibu Lions is the MetLife Dome, which has a capacity of just under 34,000 and the unusual feature of an open space behind the stands. As a result, home runs can quite often leave the stadium, which only adds to the excitement of a match played here. Both the colour scheme and logo of Saitama Seibu Lions were updated at the same time as the team name in 2008, moving away from their cartoon-style lion mascot and towards a more grown-up and fearsome appearance. With their dark blue, white and red colours, the team stands out on the pitch as a group of players not to be messed with. The Pacific League is known for its tough level of talent - teams such as Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters, Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks and Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles are all known as formidable opponents - but the continually impressive results of Saitama Seibu Lions prove that this is a team determined to claw their way to the top.
