The steering committee for the 98th Summer Koshien met in Osaka earlier today. A number of issues were decided, including, but not limited to:

  • The tournament will take place at Koshien Stadium over fifteen days, beginning on August 7.
  • The opening ceremony will start at 9:00am on August 7. The committee confirmed that the start time will not overlap with the  Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics (August 6 at 6:00am Japan time).
  • Forty-nine schools will participate in the tournament. Brackets will be set at Festival Hall in Osaka on August 4.

    Hi,

    I will be traveling to Japan in May, so too early for Koshien… but I was wondering if there were preliminaries happening at this time ? Do you think there is any chance to see some high school baseball in Tokyo at this time ?

      The Tokyo Spring Tournament takes place in April, so that doesn’t really help.

      There is the Kanto Tournament, but I don’t think any of the games will take place in Tokyo.

      There is college baseball.

    Hi! Do you know when does the summer koshien end? And will you have available a matches schedule?? We are from Spain, and we would like to attend to any match in summer koshien in our trip to Japan. Thanks!

      August 21 if there are no rain outs.

      I do plan on posting the schedule once it is available.
