Emperor’s Cup Japan Wheelchair Basketball Page
The 48th Emperor’s Cup Japan Wheelchair Basketball Championship will be held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium for the first time in three and a half years.
This tournament will be contested by a total of 8 teams that have won the preliminaries and wild cards in mixed teams of men and women. Miyagi MAX, who has won the tournament for 11 years in a row, is the center of attention. Veterans such as Ikumi Fujii and Suguru Toyoshima, who have supported the team for many years, retired after the Tokyo Paralympics and restarted as a new team. How far is the team, led by Akinobu Ito, one of the members who won the gold medal at the U23 World Championships held in September last year? Will NO EXCUSE, the runner-up team two years ago, get revenge? Can captain Hiroaki Kozai win the crown at the Emperor’s Cup since 2018 after returning from Germany?
With Renshi Chokai and Takuya Furusawa leading the young Japanese national team, will Para-Kanagawa SC be the eye of the storm in the tournament?
New and old star players will gather and a new champion team will emerge. [Image

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
