Comment from Yokosuka Mayor Katsuaki Uechi
The F. Marinos training ground development project has been the most important policy since I took office as mayor, and I have focused on maximizing the appeal of Yokosuka, which I love, by creating a busy city through sport.
I managed to convey the thoughts of the City of Yokosuka, and I think I was able to include that element. I am really looking forward to unveiling today the name that will be called by fans, supporters and everyone else for many years to come.
Next season, F. Marinos will sail from Kurihama, Yokosuka. I hope you continue to sail steadily towards your first consecutive victory since 2003 and 2004, and your long-held desire to conquer Asia. Towards that goal, Yokosuka City, as a hometown, will continue to provide strong support.
