Ryukyu Golden Kings
“Bringing Okinawa to the world” Friendly match against Taipei Fubon Braves held
On Saturday, September 23rd and Sunday, September 24th, a friendly match was held at the Okinawa Arena against the Taipei Fubon Braves from Taiwan.
As the first step in the Ryukyu Golden Kings’ next challenge of “Bringing Okinawa to the world”
(https://goldenkings.jp/news/detail/id=18615), we won the Taiwan professional basketball league P.LEAGUE+ for three consecutive seasons. We played against the powerful Fubon Braves. In addition, over the past two days, matches were held on a court with a large “Okinawa to the World” logo emblazoned on it, and the Okinawa Arena was also specially designed to convey the message to as many people as possible.
