Toyota Stadium (豊田スタジアム , Toyota Sutajiamu? ) is a 45,000 seat retractable roof stadium in Toyota, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It was built in 2001 and is often used as home to the J1 League club Nagoya Grampus. The stadium is football specific, which gives matches an authentic football aura; however its location outside Nagoya city makes it impractical for consolidating the club's fan base in its billed hometown.
Japan Air System Flight 451 was a Japan Air System flight from Nagoya Airport in the Nagoya area in Aichi Prefecture, Japan to New Chitose Airport in Sapporo, Hokkaido Prefecture with stopover at Hanamaki Airport in Hanamaki, Iwate Prefecture. On April 18, 1993, the Douglas DC-9-41 on the route crashed while landing at Hanamaki Airport. The aircraft, caught by windshear, skidded off of the runway.
It is also used by Toyota Verblitz, a rugby union team in the Top League.
Its roof is unique in that it folds much like an accordion.
Toyota Stadium is one of the venues of the FIFA Club World Cup (formerly the Toyota Cup). The stadium has also been announced as one of the venues for 2019 Rugby World Cup which will be the first Rugby World Cup to be held in Asia.
The Welsh Rugby Union hosted the 1999 Rugby World Cup with the Final being played at the stadium. The stadium also hosted 3 pool matches and 1 quarter-final match (New Zealand 18–20 France) of the 2007 Rugby World Cup.
