Ajinomoto Stadium (味の素スタジアム Ajinomoto Sutajiamu) is a multi-purpose stadium in Chōfu, Tokyo, Japan. The stadium was founded at Kantō Mura, the redevelopment area formerly used by United States
Forces Japan, in March 2001. It was the first stadium in Japan that offered its naming rights, which were sold to Ajinomoto Co. The stadium is the home of J1 League football club FC Tokyo and J2
League football club Tokyo Verdy and is used as the venue of some lower divisions of football leagues. Rugby union and American football games are also held there. The stadium is one of the
planned football venues for the 2020 Summer Olympics. During the Olympics, the stadium will be known as Tokyo Stadium due to International Olympic Committee's non-commercialization policy. The
stadium has also been announced as one of the venues for 2019 Rugby World Cup and will host the opening ceremony as well as opening match of the tournament.
