Hello All,

I'm new to this Forum so forgive me if I have posted this thread in the wrong category. I've been interested in Japanese Bids for a while now and have studied almost all of them, The ones I haven't studied much on is Nagoya 1988 and Yokohama 2008. I managed to find a few things from these Forums related to Nagoya's Bid but I haven't found much on Yokohama's. For those who do not know, Yokohama also submitted a Domestic Bid along with Osaka (Whom the Japanese would end up bidding with). I hope anyone has any info on this Bid or even better, anything related to it (Like Publications of even the Website) Thanks!

JPN2020.

Not much out there sadly -

I think it is safe to say the International Stadium was built with this bid in mind as well as the 2002 World Cup. I can't find any other justification for the track being there.
