The Japan Society is once again recruiting members for a team to compete in the Football Samurai Academy 5-a-side Tournament. We are looking to improve on our third place finish at last year’s event, which was won by Sumitomo Corporation. Whether you currently play football or enjoyed playing at school, university or for a club, we need you. Players of all abilities, men and women, are welcome, and if demand is sufficient we will form two teams.
See website here. Booking deadline: Monday 20 June
The tournament is taking place on the Football Samurai Academy’s 3G artificial pitch in North Acton, following their U6 and U14 5-a-side tournaments earlier in the day. Players will be required to wear full football kit with either trainers or astro trainers (no football or rugby boots). Matches will be 15 minutes long with rolling substitutions and teams will consist of up to eight players.
During the day there will be a barbecue, food and drink, activities and a raffle, and the Samurai Academy’s five adjacent tennis courts will be available for taster sessions. Even if you aren’t playing, please do come and support us!
Companies interested in fielding their own teams should contact Samurai Academy directly at email@example.com.
