The Japan National Stadium, formerly known as New National Stadium of Tokyo, is a multi-purpose stadium used mostly for association football and built especially for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and the Paralympics. It has been selected to serve as host for the opening and closing ceremony of the Games, as well as the venue for track and field athletics events at the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics in 2021. The old national stadium was completely demolished in May 2015, and the new construction began in December 2016. The construction cost to rebuild the entire stadium in the new standard format is estimated up to US$ 1.26 billion. Initial plans to build a new stadium were cancelled in July 2015 by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who announced a reapplication following public outcry over the increase in construction costs. As a result, the new design wasn't ready for the 2019 Rugby World Cup as originally intended. The new design, created by architect Kengo Kuma, was selected in December 2015 to replace the original design, which was completed on November 30, 2019.
