    We will also work to nurture the next generation of athletes who support the sports business. We will promote to develop athlete nurturing system by combining both Deloitte Tohmatsu’s expertise in talent management and performance development of individual athletes, and the knowledge and experience of athletes nurturing that the athletes/teams/sports related organization in the community have.
  3. Promoting the support of people with disabilities and well-being society
    We will also promote initiatives to utilize the social value of sports to the realization of people’s physical and mental health and well-being society. As one of our efforts, we are promoting to help people with disabilities, elder people and children experience fun and joy of sports through athletic experiences as a community, and promote well-being society through sports.
