Nagai Stadium seats over 47,000 people and is home to Osaka's Cerezo Osaka team. In operation since 1964, the stadium initially seated only about 23000 people. However, it was expanded in 1996 to accommodate the current capacity. It was not only one of the sports venues for the National Sports Festival of Japan in 1997 but there was also a 1964 Summer Olympics football match that took place here. It also hosted several games in the 2002 FIFA World Cup.
