JEF, Verdy legends to meet in alumni match

A match organised to celebrate JEF United Chiba’s 25th anniversary will bring some of the J.League’s earliest stars to Fukuda Denshi Arena on June 12.

Ahead of the day’s scheduled encounter between JEF and Tokyo Verdy, alumni from both teams will take the pitch in a Legend Match presented by club sponsors ZOZOTOWN.

Witnessing former JEF No.10 and West Germany star Pierre Littbarski in action is expected to be the highlight for fans.

Former Japan internationals Shoji Jo, Eisuke Nakanishi, Satoshi Tsunami, and former Verdy goalkeeper Takayuki Fujisawa are also scheduled to participate.
