Sanfrecce Hiroshima’s 2022 season kicks off

February 18, 2022

Sanfrecce Hiroshima kick off the 2022 J1 League soccer season at home, Saturday February 19.

It has been almost 10 years since the team’s last victory parade in 2013 when it topped the league for the second year in a row. They will no doubt be hoping to do better than its 8th place finish last season as the team aims to build excitement for its new city center stadium due to open for the 2024 season.

The local team will play Saga Prefecture’s Sagan Tosu at Edion Stadium, kicking off at 2pm. The opening day game will feature some live performances and the first 3000 fans to show up will get an Edion-sponsored Sanfrecce T-shirt, covered in illustrations of electronic devices and the message buchi atsu, local dialect for “Damn (polite version) hot” or passionate.

To commemorate the new season and the team’s 30th anniversary, a Sanfrecce wrapped train will also start running on the Astram Line that ferries supporters out to the stadium.
