Nissan Stadium (日産スタジアム, Nissan Sutajiamu), known as International Stadium Yokohama (横浜国際総合競技場, Yokohama Kokusai Sōgō Kyōgi-jō) until 2005, is a sports venue in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, that opened in March 1998. It is the home stadium of Yokohama F. Marinos of the J1 League.

International Stadium Yokohama has the highest seating capacity of any stadium in Japan, with a total of 72,327 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]

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, from 2011 to the 2012 and from 2015 to the 2016 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. In 1999, Japanese best-selling rock band B'z first used the stadium as a music events. Then, B'z used the stadium three times in 2002, 2008 and 2013. Heavy metal band X Japan performed two consecutive nights on 14–15 August 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.[7] The Japanese girl group AKB48 was the first ever female act to hold their concert at the stadium on 8 June 2013.[8] They also held their fifth annual Senbatsu (AKB48 32nd Single's Selected Members) Election at the stadium in that evening after concert.[9] South Korean group TVXQ performed at the stadium on 17 and 18 August 2013, as part of their Time: Live Tour 2013.
