Okinawa has plans to rebuild stadium used by Hiroshima during spring camp

According to a report filed by Nikkan Sports, Okinawa City is thinking about rebuilding the stadium the Hiroshima Carp use for spring camp.

Okinawa Municipal Stadium was built in 1973 and the Carp have used the facilities since 1982.  A number of areas have been reworked over the years, but the city wants a safe and secure stadium and has already started putting together drafts of what a new stadium might look like (apparently modeled after Okinawa Cellular Stadium Naha).  If everything goes according to plan, a new stadium, complete with 6 banks of lights and perhaps even a separate indoor training facility, might be ready for use by 2013.
