Hadid’s stadium for 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games ‘to be scaled back’

Six months after the Japanese government approved Hadid’s proposals, the country’s parliament has signalled a reverse in its support. Hakubun Shimomura, the minister in charge of education, sports and science, said that the New National Stadium would cost 300 billion yen (£1.8 billion) to build and that was “too massive a budget”. The design of the 80,000-seat stadium will be preserved but Mr Shimomura said: “We need to rethink this and scale it down.”
