Content Stadium has, in conjunction with its local partner Basscom K.K, entered the Japanese domestic sporting market with the signing of Yokohama DeNa Baystars. The Baystars are one of Japan’s most successful baseball franchises and by signing a multi-template social media package deal they showed their trust in Content Stadium.
