This story began in August 2002, when a man stood up after receiving a request from the village in Katahigashi Village, Nishikanbara County, Niigata Prefecture. He disappeared from the football world for a while, but no one left him alone. And he stood on the soccer coaching scene and caused a number of revolutions. However, he gradually changed his direction to go against that trend, and although he was quiet, the flow of the times gave the man an opportunity to stand up. That was the Katahigashi Salvia soccer field construction plan and regional revitalization. Then, he set up with the slogan of
“developing people and developing towns.” I was given unreasonable challenges and challenged, desperately overcoming the wall. And we’re trying to go even further.
[Reasons for introducing Player! WHITE]
Although it is an area where the birthrate is declining and the population is aging, not only people from the Katahigashi area but also neighboring municipalities come to visit us. In order to promote inter-regional exchanges and multi-generational exchanges, we aim to revitalize the region by launching a comprehensive regional sports club. I hope that it will be widely known and that many people will be involved.
We would like to create a club with local residents, centering on regional revitalization. In addition to soccer, we will work on various fields such as hip-hop dance, and we will be able to respond to multiple generations and multiple orientations.

What Player! WHITE aims for
In addition to professional sports teams, teams in various
competitions and categories are active every day in each region of Japan. Teams aiming for the professional category, teams competing in their own leagues, and student club activities at universities and high schools. Such a “local sports team” involves the region, connects with fans, and excites the region.
However, many local sports teams are not as well-staffed and funded as professional teams. We have to handle a lot of work while working with a small number of staff, and we have to make ends meet with a small amount of funds. .
We at ookami wanted to maximize the potential value of our local sports teams so they could spend more time doing what really matters. Therefore, we propose “Player! WHITE” to local sports teams. [What Player! WHITE can do]
1. Aggregate everything in the official app! Information can be delivered easily!
2.Increase the collection rate of fan club/OBOG membership fees! 3. Streamline your PR work with useful tools!
