A winner will be chosen later this month, the Japan Sports Council said in a statement.

"(The winning design) will be selected by the end of December after further examination by a committee consisting of architectural experts and ministers," said Council president Kazumi Daito.

"We want to create a stadium that can be loved by everyone in the world."
