SFT program utilising J.League Asia Challenge
Taking the opportunity of the “J.League Asia Challenge in Thailand” held on the 130th anniversary of the Japan-Thai friendship, a sports international exchange program including SFT promotion activities and football clinics for local elementary and junior high school students was carried out at the convention venue in collaboration with J.League.
In the SFT promotion activities, a message banner reading “Football as a bridge for international exchange” was put up by participating players, and SFT was disseminated widely through the audience and the media of the stadium. In the games, students of a deaf school and a girls’ protection facility were invited and entered the stadium with the players as escort kids. In addition, a clinic was held by Yasuhiro Hato, the Ambassador of Yokohama F. Marinos, aimed at improving the skills of local elementary and junior high school students and deepening exchanges with Japanese coaches.
