Kids International Soccer Friendly Cup 2015

The soccer event will provide an opportunity for kids from Tohoku affected areas, Tokyo, and from abroad to come together, compete together in a friendly soccer tournament and build friendship through activities of the 2 day event. The event will also help raise awareness of participating Tokyo residents and international community on the situation of those directly affected by the 3/11/2011 earthquake and aftermath from Iwate, Miyagi, and Fukushima. We will have 8 teams in total, 4 teams from Tohoku and 4 teams from Tokyo-based international schools. Kids from Tohoku will stay at Aoba-Japan International School during this event, and each Tokyo team will support a Tohoku team throughout the weekend. Volunteers from our sponsors’ organizations will also be supporting the event.
