Sporting to Host International Friendlies with Nihon Kouku Teams on Feb 27th

January 20, 2011

Santa Clara Sporting will host the U18 Boys and Girls Soccer Teams from the Nihon Kouku High School (Japan Air Aviation High School Soccer Club) on Sunday, February 27th in two friendly matches held at the Santa Clara Youth Soccer Park.  Mr. Kenji Arita, is traveling with the Japanese Academy Teams to Northern California to give the high school students a tour of Northern California and play against some of the top soccer clubs including Sporting, the San Juan Soccer Club; the girls will also play a friendly match against the California Storm (top amateur team).  

Last year, Santa Clara Sporting hosted the Bejing Sangao Soccer Team from China at the 2010 Santa Clara Sporting Invitational Tournament. Sporting continues to build a reputation as one of the top soccer clubs in the United States and is honored to receive International Team.

Please tell all your friends to come-out and welcome the Japanese Team and cheer on both teams in this soccer match.

Santa Clara Sporting is looking for a handful of volunteers to help-out on the day of the game, so if you are interested, please contact Gabe Foo at
