Since it’s establishment and as part of its mission, AFEC has never stopped to engage itself in activities that would link Africa to Japan. In the past 2 years AFEC has been involve in festival, business seminar, radio talk show etc. It was then just a question of time before the structure engage itself in a sports activity.
In fact which better, if sports to use to gather people, countries and cultures.
With the 7th edition of the TICAD being held this year in Yokohama-Japan, the AFEC team believed it was the right timing to organize the first edition of its AFEC Cup, a futsal or mini soccer tournament that should gather mainly amateur African and Japanese teams in one day tournament format.
The AFEC team believes that with values shared by sports such as tolerance, acceptance and unity, it will definitely reach its goal which is to bring Japanese population and African population all together.
