All Japan High School Soccer
Support Even Before the Word "Supporter" Came Into Existence
Since 1970, even before soccer took root in Japan, Fuji Xerox has been supporting All Japan High School Soccer. We have continued supporting Japanese soccer for more than 20 years before the J-League was established and the word "supporter" was born.
While the All Japan High School Tournament is a tournament that all high school soccer players always dream of participating in, it is also known for producing a great number of outstanding players. We have continued the support to the tournament, in believing that it is an important mission to foster healthy youth through supporting the high school students, leaders of the next generation, who work hard during practice to aim to participate in this tournament, and in addition, to contribute to the development of Japanese soccer.
Past Performance and Future Issues
The main sponsors behind this tournament are the Japan Football Association, the All Japan High School Athletic Federation, and 43 commercial broadcasting companies. Fuji Xerox has been supporting the All Japan High School Soccer Tournament, which is held at the end of each year, since 1970, and provides financial support and our copy machines for the management of the tournament. In addition, 6 sponsoring companies take turns each year to serve as the managing company, and the managing company hands out trophies at finals held in each prefecture and participates in events.
For the 85th All Japan High School Tournament (held between December 30, 2006 and January 8, 2007), we provided copy machines at all venues.
We would like to continue oursupport of All Japan High School Soccer.
