Multi-Purpose stadium that FIFA World Cup™ final was held

If you visit Nissan Stadium, you can watch a soccer game of Yokohama F・Marinos on game days.

It is one of the largest multi-purpose stadiums in Japan. In the FIFA World Cup™ in 2002, the final between Brazil and Germany was held at this stadium. Also, when the FIFA Club World Cup™ was held in Japan, the finalists played at this stadium. In particular, when Corinthians and Chelsea FC played in 2012, this stadium had a Brazilian atmosphere with a lot of Corinthians supporters.

It is a home stadium of Yokohama F・Marinos.

Yokohama F・Marinos is a professional soccer team that belongs to J-League Division 1. Its team colors are blue, white and red. It has a history that Yokohama Marinos and Yokohama Flugels were unified in 1999. Originally, Yokohama Marinos was established as Nissan Motors Soccer Club in 1972, and Yokohama Flugels was established as Yokohama Naka-Ku Junior Sports Club Association, later ANA Sato Kogyo FC, in 1963.

The first J-League game in 1993 was Verdy Kawasaki (Tokyo Verdy at present) vs Yokohama Marinos (Yokohama F・Marinos at present) at National Stadium, that was called "National Derby." In those days, there are star players including Mr. Kazushi Kimura (1958-Present), Mr. Ramon Diaz (1959-Present), Mr. David Bisconti (1968-Present), Mr. Takashi Mizunuma (1960-Present), and Mr. Masami Ihara (1967-Present).

Traditionally, this team has strong defense. It was in the 7th out of 22 teams in J-League Division 1 in 2014 season. Mr. Erick Mombaerts (1955-Present) is the head coach in 2015 season. There are many star players including Mr. Shunsuke Nakamura (1978-Present), Mr. Manabu Saito (1990-Present), Mr. Yuji Nakazawa (1978-Present), Mr. Yuzo Kurihara (1983-Present), and Ademilson (1994-Present).

Yokohama F・Marinos supporters create smart atmosphere. They sing the melody of Le Miserable.

International Stadium Yokohama is called Nissan Stadium, due to the naming rights of Yokohama City. On the other hands, in some cases such as AFC Champion League and FIFA Club World Cup™, it is still called International Stadium Yokohama.

It opened in 1998. It is the largest public multi-purpose stadium of Yokohama City that holds 72,327 people at Shin-Yokohama Park in Kozukue-Cho, Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture. Its nearest station is Kozukue Station.
