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 now. Kincho also became the uniform sponsor for Cerezo Osaka.
