Tokyo’s New National Stadium will hold a crowd of 68,000 people next year at the 2020 Olympics, organizers said Monday when venue capacities were announced.

Ajinomoto Stadium, which will host soccer and rugby, was listed at 48,000, while the Tokyo Aquatics Center will be able to hold 15,000. Due to cost cutting, some venue capacities are smaller than those estimated in Tokyo’s candidature file.
