The "2012 SOLATO Ehime FC Football School, Vol.1" was held at Yawatahama Sports Park on June 9, 2012 (Sat). The day's football school was held for children in elementary school years 1 to 4 and their guardians, with the event gathering a total of 103 participants.
Members from Ehime FC, including players Oki, Uchida and Fukuda, and supporting team staff, were present on the day. Children and guardians at the event watched and learned the techniques of professional players and played together in games in what turned out to be a fun-filled day. The ever popular lottery was also held, with prizes including Ehime FC merchandise, and an autograph-signing session of the said players added further excitement to the event.
Taiyo Oil will continue to hold similar sports schools in order to help foster children's interest in sports and development of a sound mind in a healthy body.
