Teach the fun of kicking a football ball and deepen the communication with family. JFA Festival is not only an occasion to diffuse and strengthen football, but it is an event that allows to feel closer football and to deepen communication with family through the fun of ball-kicking. On holiday, how about going to the event site in your neighbourhood?
