[Reasons for introducing Player! WHITE]
Until now, information about matches was posted on each social media, but players’ profile information etc. had to be viewed from the official website.
On the other hand, I decided to introduce this app because it aggregates that information and allows you to see more information in one medium.
We hope that the introduction of this app will be an opportunity for more people to learn about Hosei Football.
We would like to use the membership function and push notification function to further enhance the content and create a team with the fans.
In addition, through this app, we would like to quickly send match information to fans who can not easily go to the match venue and alumni who are active all over the country after graduation, so that they can feel closer to us. increase.

“In this world, sports diversity.”
Player! is a platform where anyone can create their favorite sports, support them, and get excited.
Player! proposes a lifestyle with “my sports” instead of “mass sports”. Find a city that you like, try living in it, come to like it, and enjoy contributing to the excitement of that city. As for sports, it should be fun if you can find your own favorite sport, fall in love with it, and contribute to the excitement of that sport.

[What is Player! WHITE]
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 manned or funded as professional teams. We have to manage a large amount of work while having a small number of staff concurrently, 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.
