On August 5 (Sat.), 2017, Taiyo Oil held “The 2017 SOLATO Ehime FC Football School VOL.2” at Maruyama Park Athletics Stadium in Uwajima City, Ehime Prefecture.
A total of 38 people took part this time, including elementary school pupils from year 1 to year 4 and their parents or guardians.
This soccer workshop has taken place every year since 2007 and is staffed by the Aichi FC, which belongs to the J2 League and which this company is the official uniform sponsor of.
On the day of the event, Ehime FC Ladies players Hazuki Onoue, Manami Ogawa, and Rie Abe were in charge of providing instruction. While the weather was less than ideal, with some rain coming down during the event, the participating children had fun energetically playing soccer in the rainy conditions.
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.
