The 10th All-Japan University Futsal Competition was held at Maishima Arena in Osaka from August 22 to 24, and the APU men's futsal team DELFINO took third place as the representatives of Kyushu.
It was the team's second time in as many years to place third at the national level. Aiming to perform better than last year, the 27 member strong team practiced hard all year.
The team's membership changed significantly last September and SHIMIZU Taishi became the new captain. "My goal was to make sure everyone was on the same page and that we all understood the techniques. We were confident we could win because we practiced hard," said SHIMIZU. One team member, YAMAGUCHI Hironori, helped out by planning team activities and reserving hotels, in addition to playing. DELFINO was selected as one of APU's Premier Club again this year, and we look forward to hearing more exciting news from them in the future.
