Old Hiroshima Stadium gets a “stay of execution”

Hiroshima City announced on Friday that they will be holding off on tearing down the stadium (for the time being) and will begin accepting applications for use of the facilities again.

At this point, it seems the old stadium will stay up at least through the summer (there's also a chance that the Hiroshima high school summer tournament will have the chance to play a few games at the stadium) but will ultimately be torn down before the end of the fiscal year.
