Message from Mr. KITAZAWA
Since 2008, the Tokyo U-14 International Youth Football Tournament has been established as an international tournament held during Golden Week, and every year many fans and supporters as well as local people come to offer their support for this amazing event that is staged at Komazawa Olympic Park Stadium.
The young stars of the future will gather from all over the world to meet in Tokyo as they demonstrate a variety of playing styles in the highly competitive matches, and the players will also be able to discover different cultures as they interact with each other, which gives the event the same feeling as that of the Olympics or the World Cup. We are sure that everyone participating in the tournament will do so with a spirit of hospitality.
The lively South American teams were superior for many years, but last year Cairo selected team were the first time winners.
For the last five years, the Japan team has been far from being victorious.
As the host country, the aim is win the tournament, which we hope will liven up this tournament.
In January of this year, the young players of the U-23 Japan team guaranteed their appearance at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in August.
The team includes players who grew up participating in the Tokyo U-14 International Youth Football Tournament.
We look forward to seeing the teams play with all their strength in this tournament as the players look forward to the future. Let’s support world soccer and the future of Tokyo!
