What is Player!
“In this world, sports diversity.”
Player! is a platform where anyone can create their favorite sports, support them, and get excited.
Over the past 50 years, the sports industry has developed through the trinity of mass sports, mass media, and mass sponsors.
Sports with few fans can’t stand national broadcasting, there is no mass media coverage, and mass sponsors are not available, and they are becoming more and more minor sports.
It was during the Showa and Heisei eras that a large gap emerged between mass sports and minor sports.
Is it really a minor sport for the hard-working softball players and the mothers who support them?
Player! proposes a lifestyle with “my sports” instead of “mass sports”. Find a city you like, try living in it, fall in love with 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. Player! will create a world where everyone can create their own favorite sports, support them, and excite them. Sports diversity in this world. Player! Official website: https://ookami.tokyo
