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 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 game was won by Brazil, 2–0). 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 the negotiation was continued with the city office, and they made new construction for more three years on the expired day, 1 March 2010.
