The impact of the typhoon is still there this morning, but was there damage around you?
In the game against Nagoya Grampus on Saturday September 17, we failed to claim victory. We apologize to everyone who rushed to Toyota Stadium and everyone who supported us.
One disappointment was that during the 30th anniversary ceremony held before the Nagoya match, the Sanfrecce spectators booed. It’s a shame that it was such a precious time for Nagoya-san from Original 10, just like us.
Sanfrecce Hiroshima’s style of play is “fair but refreshing”, “resolute” and “always aiming for the goal”. At the same time, the team’s “code of conduct” stipulates “respect for others” as well as best efforts and compliance with the rules. Kazuo Imanishi, who served as the first general manager, coached the team heavily as an integral member of society, and because of this, many Hiroshima coaches continue to play an active role in other teams and in the world of Japanese football in general.
We would like to ask everyone who supports Sanfrecce Hiroshima to show respect to the opposing team.
Two years after the bombing, there is a miraculous record that Hiroshima Higher Normal School won the national tournament, which is equivalent to today’s high school football championship. Since then, Hiroshima high school students have been winning the national title with a strong desire to show that Hiroshima will not die. This tenacity has made football stronger.
On the other hand, at this time, all the cities are struggling to recover from the defeat, but Hiroshima receives support from all over the country, including from overseas. The symbol is the “offering tree” donated from all over the country for the maintenance of the Boulevard de la Paix. About 2,000 trees of about 150 species have grown along the current 100-meter street, and it was the encouragement sent to Hiroshima from all over the country that protected us from the scorching sun this summer, mixed with rare trees.
Regina’s cup match will start at 7:00 p.m. today, tomorrow’s match against Levain Away Fukuoka will start at 7:00 p.m., and on the 25th there will be a match against Fukuoka at Edion Stadium. Thank you for your Hiroshima style of encouragement.
Sanfrecce Hiroshima Co., Ltd.
Representative Director and President Shingo Senda
