Special - Rugby Match at International Stadium Yokohama, Venue of Final of Rugby World Cup 2019

Japan will host Rugby World Cup 2019 for the first time in Asian Countries.

International Stadium Yokohama (横浜国際総合競技場, Yokohama Sogo Kokusai Kyogijo), usually called as NISSAN Stadium (日産スタジアム) due to naming rights, is a stadium where the final match of the Rugby World Cup 2019 will take place.

On 4th November 2017, I watched rugby international match (Japan vs Australia) at the largest stadium in Japan.

In the first half 'Wallabies' strongly dominated the Japan team with 35-3 lead.

But later 'Brave Blossoms' scored 3 tries in the second half before 23-63 loss.

Increasing of the popularity of rugby in Japan shows the number of the spectators 43,631, the most ever in the Japan national team match.

I hope that Japanese rugby fans will also get excited with Rugby World Cup 2019 matches too!
