Japan Football Museum to be closed in February 2023
22 November 2022
Due to Japan Football Association's (JFA) upcoming move to a new office, the Japan Football Museum will be closing as of Sunday 5 February 2023.
As the Japan Football Museum is an important facility that houses the history of football and valuable documents, we are discussing the value of its existence once again and considering where it should be relocated.
Last day of business: Sun. 5 February 2023, 10:00 - 17:00
※A closing ceremony is planned for the day (details to be confirmed).
※We are currently looking for a new location for the Japan Football Hall of Fame so that it can be re-opened to the public soon after the museum closes.
※The “adidas JFA SHOP” and “JFA STORE Japan Football Museum shop,” which are located in the Japan Football Museum, will also be closing their doors on the same day.
