Swallows asked to play an Ichi-gun game in Niigata next year

Niigata prefectural governor Hirohiko Izumida visited Swallows' president Tadashi Suzuki earlier today to ask if the team would consider playing an Ichi-gun game at Hard Off Stadium next season.  The Swallows apparently put the request on hold.

Before the game, Izumida also visited interim manager Junji Ogawa to present him with 300kg of Uonuma koshihikari rice.

Izumida asked the Swallows about playing a game at Hard Off Stadium this season in 2009, but those talks apparently fell through.
