Football at the 2020 Summer Olympics

International Stadium Yokohama has the highest seating capacity of any stadium in Japan, with a total of 75,000 seats.[1] It hosted three first-round games during the 2002 FIFA World Cup, and the final game between Germany and Brazil was played there on 30 June 2002. The stadium is one of the planned football venues for the 2020 Summer Olympics.[2] The stadium has also been selected as one of the venues for 2019 Rugby World Cup and will also host the final of the tournament. This decision was taken by World Rugby after Japan announced that the proposed new National Stadium wouldn't be completed in time.[3]

On 28 August 2009, Nissan Motors announced that they would not renew the contract for the naming rights of the stadium, which expired on 28 February 2010.[4] But negotiations continued with the city, and a new agreement for three more years was completed. On 28 February 2013, Yokohama City as the stadium's owner renewed the contract for 3 years from 1 March 2013 until 29 February 2016 in a deal worth 150 million yen a year.[5] On 1 December 2015, Yokohama City renewed the contract for 5 years from 1 March 2016 until 28 February 2021 in another deal worth 150 million yen a year.[6]
