Don’t miss this special edition of AFI Live on Japan covering everything from race relations to the growth of the game in that country.
Japan is rated as arguably the top country for American football outside of North America with Japanese players starting the game as early as middle school and continuing through college and the top league, the X League.
The most dominant team in Japan over the past half decade has been the Fujitsu Frontiers who have won five of the last six titles in Japan.
AFI Live is pleased to have Fujitsu Frontiers assistant head coach and offensive coordinator Pierre Ingram, former Frontiers running back Gino Gordon, Frontiers defensive back Al Rilwan Adeyemi, Asahi Soft Drink Challengers/Marburg Mercenaries WR/ DB Robert Johnson as well as the Content Director of Inside Sport Japan, John Gunning, all on hand to discuss everything from football in Japan to race relations in the Far East.
So please tune in for this episode of AFI Live on Facebook Sunday, June 28 at 3 pm Central European Time (9 am Eastern Daylight Time).
Our panel – John McKeon, Kaleb Leach, and Roger Kelly – will be on hand to ask questions and hopefully answer questions as we discuss everything from the race situation in football in Japan to the development of the game.
Wherever you are in the world, we want to hear from you Sunday, June 28 at 9 am Eastern (3 pm CET)
So please don’t hesitate to jump in on the discussion.
