Unventilated, non air-conditioned enclosed glass boxes with no seating, placed in unshaded areas should do the trick.

Only Japan thinks its going out of it's way to ban smoking INSIDE spectator stadiums with tens of thousands of people inside.!

The World Cup organizing committee has decided to ban indoor smoking at the 12 venues in principle

Most civilised nations banned this decades ago. Aren't there fire regulations in Japan that would ban smoking anyway.??

An outside smoking area? What's the problem. I get sick of these sanctimonious articles.

"Smoking areas are needed because we don't want people creating litter with cigarette butts."

Perhaps eliminating the smoking areas would eliminate the cigarette butts litter...no?

Fortunately, us chimneys get better treatment than the medieval torture some would like us to experience.

I rarely smoke at sporting events, because I'm too glued to what's happening on the pitch/field etc, but it's nice to know that there is the facility available should I need to partake in my habit.
