Taiyo Oil launched “The 2017 SOLATO Ehime FC Football School VOL.3” on Sunday, September 24, 2017, at the Ehime FC's home stadium, the Ningineer Stadium, in Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture.
This workshop was for elementary pupils from grades 1 to 4, and a total of 67 children took part.
This soccer workshop has taken place every year since 2007 and is staffed by the Ehime FC, which belongs to the J2 League and which this company is the official uniform sponsor of.
In charge of the workshop on the day were the top Ehime FC team players Awaka Shunta, Kanda Yumemi, and Koike Junki. The children taking part enjoyed an energetic soccer session on the same pitch where professional games are played.
