Toyota Stadium (豊田スタジアム Toyota Sutajiamu) is a 45,000 seat retractable roof stadium in Toyota, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It was built in 2001 and is often used as home to the J1 League club Nagoya Grampus. The stadium is football-specific, which gives matches an authentic football aura; however its location outside Nagoya city makes it impractical for consolidating the club's fan base in its billed hometown.
