The Venue
Formerly one of Japan's least accessible cities because of its surrounding mountains, Niigata will host the first World Cup finals match to be played in Japan. The stadium's name comes from the translucent white Teflon roof, which has been made to evoke swans alighting on the nearby Toyanogata lagoons.
