World Cup 2002 Stadiums - Niigata

The Niigata Prefectural Stadium is one of the more elegant of the new World Cup venues. Its most innovative feature is a translucent Teflon roof, which covers 90% of the seating while letting in natural light.

The curves of the roof are reminiscent of swans, which can be seen locally on the Toyanogata lagoon.

Niigata Information
Niigata is located at the mouth of Japan's longest river, the Shinano. The surrounding area is renowned for its rugged beauty, with mountains giving way to grassy plains and beaches.

Niigata is the largest port on the Japan Sea coast, and serves as a gateway to the region's machinery, textile, chemical, oil-refining and lumber industries.
