Nagai Ball Gall Field (大阪市長居球技場?), named Kincho Stadium (キンチョウスタジアム?) for J. League association football games, Top League rugby football games, and X-League American football games, is a football and rugby union stadium located in Nagai Park, Higashisumiyoshi-ku, Osaka, Japan. The 20,000 seat stadium is the third stadium in the Nagai Complex along with Nagai Stadium, and Nagai Aid Stadium.

With Cerezo Osaka's moving the home and the renovation of the stadium in 2010, the naming rights of the stadium were advertised. The rights were knocked down to Dainihon Jochugiku Company, Limited (大日本除虫菊株式会社?, Kincho) for 36 million yen a year and stadium was named "Kincho Stadium (キンチョウスタジアム?)". The name is used from August 1, 2010 until December 31, 2013. Kincho also became the uniform sponsor for Cerezo Osaka.
