Japanese team open a School

A football club in Japan is set to open a private High School in an interesting move. The school will be located in the Japanese city of Okinawa with a population of 1.3 million people. This is a unique move as it will be the first of its kind in the world. 

The Japanese football club behind the move is FC Ryukyu  a club in the J League 3. This will, of course, be a school based around Education and Sport. They hope to focus on creating a new generation of footballers in Okinawa as well as providing them with an excellent education.
The clubs chairman Keishiro Kurabayashi said on the news;

Education will be incredibly important for future generations. As this prefecture’s J.League club we want to take on the important challenge of running an athletics-focused school by using our resources and networking ability.

Together with the rest of the prefecture, FC Ryukyu Gakuin will work to realise our three visions of developing sports education, developing talent in the field, and promoting sports within the prefecture.

It will now be interesting to discover if we see future talent appear from the school for the city of Okinawa and for the Japanese national side.
