Message from Mr. KITAZAWA

The Tokyo U-14 International Youth Football Tournament will be held for the 10th time this year.
Every year, football stars of tomorrow from around the globe gather in Tokyo to compete in exciting matches.
Competing on an international stage as a youth player provides a hugely meaningful experience, which helps a player’s physical and mental growth.      
Since last year, the tournament started hosting an inclusive family football clinic as well, where participants, both with and without disabilities, get to play football together, understand each other’s differences, and respect and support one another.

This year coincides with the FIFA World Cup, the much anticipated quadrennial international football tournament.
I believe all 23 members of the Japanese national team, together with their coaches, staff, and supporters, will work as one and perform at a high level.
I’m convinced of people’s ability to affect one another in a way that supporters, staff, and the people surrounding the athletes can push them beyond their normal capabilities at the world’s biggest stage by supporting and cheering them on.  

Also, come 2020, Tokyo will host a number of athletes and people from all corners of the world for the Summer Olympics and Paralympics.

I hope this Tokyo U-14 International Youth Football Tournament will be a platform forged and enriched by its participants themselves, where sport becomes a catalyst to bring people closer and support one another.
