HIROSHIMA, Japan—Mazda Motor Corporation has announced that for the second year running it will be the main sponsor for two all-star games organized by the Nippon Professional Baseball Association in Japan.
The Mazda all-star games 2009 will be played at the Sapporo Dome on July 24 and at the MAZDA Zoom-Zoom Stadium Hiroshima (Mazda Stadium) on July 25, 2009.
Why Mazda Will Sponsor These Games
Mazda decided to support the all-star games as the main sponsor to help re-energize Japan by bringing the dynamic allure, dreams and emotions of the sport to as many people as possible. The games will also coincide with the launch of the all-new Mazda Axela (known overseas as the Mazda3), which blends a sporty ride with top class environmental performance.
Mazda will hold a variety of activities to support the all-star games. These activities include fan balloting for the all-star teams’ player selection, which begins in late May and continues through to the “Mazda All-Star Game 2009” days on July 24 and 25.
