The Rakuten Eagles announced earlier today that Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd (Nippon Seishi) extended their contract for naming rights to the Eagles' stadium.  The stadium's abbreviated name will remain K-Sta Miyagi (Kスタ宮城), but the full name will become Nippon Seishi Kleenex Stadium Miyagi.

The contract Nippon Paper signed is for an additional 3 years and is worth 200M yen a year (50M to Miyagai and 150M to Rakuten).  The new contract will kick in in January 2011.

Note: Nippon Seishi was originally excluded from the stadium name because there was a scandal involving the company and it was decided it would be better to drop that part of the name.  The original contract also paid out 250M yen a year.
