The International Stadium Yokohama (横浜国際総合競技場 Yokohama Kokusai Sōgō Kyōgi-jō?), also known as Nissan Stadium (日産スタジアム Nissan Sutajiamu?) is a sports venue in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, inaugurated in March 1998. It is the home stadium of Yokohama F. Marinos of the J. League.

Yokohama International Stadium has the highest seating capacity of any stadium in Japan, with a total of 70,000 seats. 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 game was won by Brazil, 2–0). The stadium is one of the planned football venues for the 2020 Summer Olympics.[1]

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.[2] But the negotiation was continued with the city office, and they made new construction for more three years on the expired day, 1 March 2010.

Football Club World Cup[edit]

International Stadium Yokohama has been hosting the FIFA Club World Cup since 2003, first as European/South American Intercontinental Cup and later the Club World Cup.

The first edition held in Yokohama was the match between Real Madrid and Olimpia, where Real were crowned champions. In 2005, the old Intercontinental Cup was replaced to the new World Championship involving football teams, the FIFA Club World Cup, with more teams and matches.

One of the venues, including the final, from 2005 to the 2008 and from 2011 to 2012 editions was the International Stadium Yokohama.

Music events[edit]

Some Japanese musicians have played at this stadium. "Arena seats" are often set up on the track and ground. Heavy metal band X Japan performed two consecutive nights on August 14–15, 2010. Their former bass player Taiji joined them both nights, the first, and only, time since he left the group in 1992. Attendance for both concerts was estimated at 140,000.[3] The Japanese girl group AKB48 was the first ever female act to hold their concert at the stadium on June 8, 2013.[4] They also held their 5th annual Senbatsu (AKB48 32nd Single's Selected Members) Election at the stadium in that evening after concert.[5] The girl group Momoiro Clover Z gave a solo concert at the arena on August 4, 2013. South Korean group TVXQ performed at the stadium on August 17 and 18, 2013, as part of their Tohoshinki Live Tour 2013 Time[6]
