Revitalizing Local Communities by Promoting Sports Activities
Denka has been supporting a number of sports events held at the DENKA BIG SWAN STADIUM for the
nearly two years since renaming this arena following the acquisition of naming rights in January

We will continue to promote sports activities to create a more vibrant community.
