Naruto Otsuka Sports Park Pocari Sweat Stadium[2] (Japanese: 鳴門・大塚スポーツパークポカリスエットスタジアム), or Pocarisweat Stadium in short, is a multi-purpose stadium in Naruto, Tokushima, Japan. The stadium is named after Pocari Sweat.

Its original name was Naruto Athletic Park Stadium (Japanese: 徳島県鳴門総合運動公園陸上競技場), which was renamed by the naming rights by Otsuka Pharmaceutical and after its product Pocari Sweat.[2]

It is currently used mostly for football matches. It serves as a home ground of Tokushima Vortis. The stadium holds 17,924 people since the most recent renovation works.
