Comment from President Takeshi Fukai
I am thrilled that we have the opportunity to be the official shirt sponsor of Tochigi Uva FC, who take part in the nationwide soccer league from their base in southern Tochigi prefecture.
We support the team and hope that it inspires local children as well as providing the spark to create a vibrant region.
