New Olympic Stadium opens in Tokyo

Tokyo's New Olympic Stadium Opened

Thursday 2nd January 2020

Tokyo's new National Stadium has opened 5 months ahead of the Olympics.

The new 68,000 seat arena has cost over £960m to build and will be home to the Japanese national football and rugby teams after the Olympics this summer.

Like Wembley, the new ground is built on the site of the old National Stadium which was demolished in 2015.

The first football match took place on New Year's Day, with Vissel Kobe beating Kashima Antlers 2-0 in the Emperor's Cup Final.

The victorious Kobe side featured Andreas Iniesta, Lucas Podolski and David Villa.
