New Japan Pro-Wrestling made the announcement during the intermission of their ‘Sengoku Lord’ event on 7/25 that next month on August 29th, for the conclusion of their series of ‘Summer Struggle’ shows, they’ll hold an event inside of the Jingu baseball stadium. The forthcoming event will be the second time that New Japan has run an event in said stadium, with the last being 21 years ago.
Jingu Stadium has a capacity of 37,000 fans but the attendance number will be smaller due to social distancing.
