    Being appointed as the first official supporter fills me with excitement. I’m personally very excited to be appointed as an official supporter. I have loved Captain Tsubasa for a long time now, and now I’ve been able to come to Japan. Like the original series, TSUBASA+ is about more than just football. It’s a bigger project about the spirit of all sport. This not only helps us to understand the game, but also creates a sense of companionship. I feel that this game brings surprising innovation into the world. This game is a place that mixes the real world with the characters from Captain Tsubasa. I myself would love to play against Ozora Tsubasa, Kojiro Hyaga, and Jun Misugi. I’m really happy to be part of this project and I wish for its success.”
