NameEdit

The name of the station "上海体育场" (literally Shanghai Sports Field) refers to nearby Shanghai Stadium. As the adjacent Line 1/Line 4 transfer station used to use this English name, that station is now translated as Shanghai Indoor Stadium. Still, confusion remains due to the similarity of the names in both English and Chinese, only differing by one word/character, and referring to facilities located in close vicinity.
