Fukuda Denshi Arena (フクダ電子アリーナ Fukuda Denshi Ariina?), known commonly as Fuku-Ari (フクアリ), is a football stadium in Chiba city, Japan. It was completed in 2005 and is home to the J. League club JEF United Ichihara Chiba following their move from the Ichihara Seaside Stadium. This stadium has 18,500 seats and 1,281 standings. Full capacity is 19,781.
Originally named Chiba City Soga Football Stadium (千葉市蘇我球技場 Chiba-shi Soga Kyūgijō?), Fukuda Denshi, a medical electric instrument manufacturer, won the naming rights after outbidding several other candidates.
The location is a former Kawasaki Steel factory site.
The first international match was held on 30 May, 2009, as the men's national teams of Belgium and Chile played out a 1-1 draw.
