Okinawa Prefecture started accepting applications Tuesday for the naming rights of the Okinawa Comprehensive Athletic Park in Hiyagon, Okinawa City.
The winning bid for the naming rights should offer more than ¥10 million per year, excluding taxes, for a contract period of three years. The deadline for the applications is Nov. 18.
The successful applicant company should have a representative office in Okinawa, and be closely related to Okinawa. The prefecture is calling for applicants both in and outside of Okinawa to bid.
