It seems the city of Sapporo is planning to sell the naming rights to Sapporo Dome.  The city is looking for a 5-year deal worth around 500M yen (per year) and could begin looking for buyers sometime as early as January, with a start date in April.

According to the city, Sapporo Dome will need to undergo various repairs over the next 20 years and the cost for that will likely run over 20B yen.  The city would like to use the money they make from selling the naming rights to the stadium in order to help pay for those repairs.
