The Seibu Lions have decided that they will hold Yusei Kikuchi's press conferences on 12/9.
They will be renting out a hall in a hotel room that can seat about 800 people. The club believes they'll need more than the 300 seats that were necessary for Daisuke Matsuzaka's press conference.

JTB will likely offer a tour package that will allow Kikuchi fans to go to Spring camp to watch him practice. This past summer, JTB offered a tour package for watching Koshien games that ended up being very popular because of Kikuchi. They feel that there will be as much, if not more, interest in tour packages that involve being able to watch Kikuchi at Spring camp and during the regular season.
