Braille shirts that give you a sense of unity
The Braille shirt is a charity shirt carried out in collaboration with a club supported by Hummel. Gamba Osaka of the J League, JEF United Ichihara Chiba, Zweigen Kanazawa, and Nagoya Diamond Dolphins of the B League also played, making him the fifth club in INAC Kobe.
The design is an INAC Kobe original that combines the love for women’s soccer with clapping to support the club, whether visible or not. The club mascot character, Raika-chan, was hidden between the palm and the heart, and when I picked up the shirt, Ika-chan happily pointed at me and said, “Raika is here!”
Manami Takase, who learned Braille when she was in elementary school and still remembers it a little, said, “It was a hit with the team, with some players having fun looking for the hidden patterns on the shirts and tracing the Braille.Collaboration with Hummel I was happy to score a goal with Kitagawa (also a Hummel contract player) in the match against Saitama, which I wore as part of the project, and it gave me strength.”
At the post-game ceremony, all players wore Braille shirts. Kitagawa said, “Personally, I like the design, and I’ve heard a lot of comments from the players that it’s cute.Up until last year, I personally participated in Hummel projects like this, but this year, I’ve been participating in Hummel projects as a club. I felt a sense of unity by being able to participate. I was really happy to be able to wear this Braille shirt with everyone at the stadium. I think this is what we call Equipo (meaning team or family in Spanish). He said that the project embodies the club’s aspirations.
We are planning a charity auction for the Braille shirts worn this time, and a portion of the proceeds from general sales will be used to support visually impaired people in our hometown area.

* ■About Hummel*
The Danish sports brand Hummel was born in 1923 and developed the world’s first spikes with studs. At the time, soccer players were playing soccer in leather shoes, and by adding studs to the flat soles of their shoes, they dramatically improved their grip, making it possible to play in ways that were previously impossible. The brand name and logo are based on an anecdote about how a bumble bee (hummel in German), which is theoretically unable to fly due to its weight, was able to fly through repeated efforts. After 100 years of history, we are currently “Change
The World Through Sport.”
With the mission of (changing the world through sports), we develop a unique brand story. I continue to take on new challenges.
