Comments from Asia University Baseball Club

[Team introduction]
The Asia University Hardball Baseball Club, which belongs to the I-Division League of the Toto University Baseball Federation, has been active every day since its founding in 1958 with the goals of “running as fast as it can” and “partially remaining and being the best in Japan.” Make college baseball more interesting and fun. The challenges are endless as we aim to become the best hardball baseball team in Japan. It’s not just the players who are excited. Let’s “connect” together! Are you ready to come along?
[Reason for introducing Player! WHITE]
Isn’t SNS like X・Instagram a one-way street in a sense? It all started when I felt that something was missing. I also wanted the fans to feel closer to Asia. We decided to introduce it because we wanted to create a new place where everyone can have fun, with notifications that only those who have installed can enjoy, breaking news during matches, and comments from everyone.
[Future outlook]
Taking advantage of the app’s greatest appeal of being able to obtain information more directly and quickly, it will serve as a platform that allows you to interact closely with your team. We are planning to prepare a lot of projects that will be exciting with all the fans, not only during the season! We also hope to be able to provide information on online shops where you can purchase original goods and information on sports promotion at Asia University through the app. We will continue to think about ways to enjoy various apps with everyone, so please look forward to it! !

What Player! WHITE aims to do
In each region across Japan, not only professional sports teams but also teams in various sports and categories operate daily. Teams aiming for the professional category, teams competing in their own leagues, and student club activities at universities and high schools. These “local sports teams” involve the local community, connect with fans, and enliven the area.
However, many local sports teams do not have as much staff or funding as professional teams. We have to manage many tasks with a small number of staff members, and we have to make do with little funds, so we have to focus more on keeping the team alive than making the team stronger and winning. .
At ookami, we wanted to maximize the potential value of 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. Consolidate everything in the official app! You can easily send information! 2. Increase the collection rate of fan club/OBOG membership fees! 3. Make your public relations work more efficient with useful tools! For more information on installation costs and features, please contact us below.
