The Olympic rugby sevens competition will take place inside Tokyo Stadium, a 48,000-seat outdoor stadium in the city of Chofu, in the Tokyo Metropolis. It is the home ground of FC Tokyo, a team in Japan’s top-flight soccer league.
Tokyo Stadium was one of 12 venues for the 2019 Rugby World Cup (rugby 15s) and the only one located inside the Tokyo Metropolis. It hosted the third-place game, where the New Zealand All Blacks defeated Wales, 40-17.
In 2011, the stadium was used to shelter survivors of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.
