Female football players move to the region and take up agriculture while practicing football. This project has been born out of ETAT suggesting an alternative way to make living in Satoyama while keeping career as a professional football player.

This pioneering and unique project is to contribute to“Matsudai Tanada Bank”, a scheme to help maintain the terraced rice field in the region which have been loosing owners due to the rapid ageing and depopulation.The team has an aspiration to join the Nadeshiko League in not too distant future.

TSDO, the design practice of prominent graphic designer Taku Satoh, has designed two versions of the FC Echigo-Tsumari uniform. The white one, for home games, represents snow and rice, whereas the dark green one, for away games, symbolises the abundant nature of satoyama. Rice leaves are the supporters while the eleven ears of rice shining on the chest connote players on the football field. Let’s put on this uniform and support FC Echigo-Tsumari!
