PACIFIC RIM CUP
The Pacific Rim region is where people call“The Last Market” in soccer. This region is where upcoming new leagues like J.League and Major League Soccer are flourishing. In 2018, we have successfully launched the “Pacific Rim Cup”, where professional soccer clubs from Japan, North America, and others from this region get together annually at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii, which is the center of this region. This is not only a soccer tournament but a week-long event full of activities such as a free soccer clinic where 300 kids participate and fills up in 20 minutes, U23 Hawaii All Star Game, VIP Party where more than 150 people gather, and a lot more. The event generates a local economic impact of $2M and we are proud to continue to build this property.
BLUE UNITED eFC
eSports has been gaining global attention rapidly these days, and in 2018, we have launched our own professional eSports team “Blue United eFC (EA Sports: FIFA)”. We have instantly became the powerhouse in Japan with the signing of Japanese national team star players AGU and Tsakt and have been representing Asia in the FIFA eClub World Cup, and many other international competitions since our inception. We have also won the eJ.League to be recognized as one of the top teams in Japan. We have also been creative on consulting and collaborating with entities who is entering eSports to build their eSports courses, boot camps, and many more.
We translate not only the language but also the nuance and cultural differences that we have gained through our experiences from abroad. We provide international business development for teams, leagues, athletes and corporations, based on the mentality that you cannot import things as is, but with necessary localization. We serve Kashima Antlers as its Global Strategy Officer, MLS as its Consultant of Players and International Relations, Pacific League Marketing as its Director of International Business Development, Omiya Ardija as its International Technical Advisor, manage Sevilla FC’s official Japanese Twitter account, and manage NY Red Bulls and Yanmar’s Marketing Partnership. We are also a FIFA Licensed Match Agent and manage international friendlies such as the “Saitama City Cup”.
BLUE UNITED ATHLETICS
We provide consulting and support to selected student athletes to study abroad. Going abroad or becoming a professional athlete is not necessarily the answer to everything. However, being an elite athlete is blessed as being able to speak another language, and if that gives you the chance to broaden your view abroad, that is fantastic. All of our staff have been lucky enough to go abroad because of sports. However, this requires quality support and the student needs to be mature. Therefore, we cannot be a study abroad agency that puts profit and our interest first, and this is why we limit the number of students we decide to help and make sure we provide the best and full attention to the selected athletes.
