A stadium hosting games for the Rugby World Cup in the central Aichi Prefecture city of Toyota has removed its name sign in consideration of one of the event’s main sponsors, British carmaker Jaguar Land Rover Ltd., a city official said Monday.

The Toyota Stadium sign set up at the entrance was removed on Sept. 3 at the request of RWC organizer World Rugby, which feared it may be taken as promoting Toyota Motor Corp. although the facility is a city property, the official said.
