■ Background of “COEDO SPORTS COLLEGE”
Currently, many sports clubs, including J-League clubs, face a business issue of “high reliance on sponsor revenue”.
Furthermore, in the COVID-19 crisis, sponsorship costs are likely to be reduced, and as a result, many clubs have developed into a situation that threatens the survival of their business.
On the other hand, while the hurdles for “creating revenue sources other than sponsors” are not low, there are not many places to practice it on a trial basis.
“COEDO SPORTS COLLEGE” is a soccer club from Kawagoe City, Saitama Prefecture aiming for the J League, and provides a place where you can challenge business creation using a real soccer club.
At “COEDO SPORTS COLLEGE”, it is possible not only to come up with a business plan and propose it, but also to carry it out on your own with the club management team.
COEDO KAWAGOE FC strongly felt the need to develop human resources who can create “new revenue” that does not depend on the conventional business structure after the corona disaster. To realize the mission, we aim to be a club that produces talented people who can play an active role in the sports world.
■ COEDO SPORTS COLLEGE 1st and 2nd term results
A total of 14 people participated in the second phase of COEDO SPORTS COLLEGE, and it was held for about four months from the KICKOFF meeting to the final proposal.

Comment from COEDO KAWAGOE FC Co., Ltd. Director Ryosuke Nakajima
“Compared to other industries, salaries in the sports industry often remain low, and there are cases in which people who want to continue working retire due to the fact that salaries do not rise chronically. Compared to when I was working at my previous job at Recruit, I am now working in the sports industry with an annual income of about half.However, the sports industry needs excellent human resources to demonstrate its value as a business. It is necessary to enter the industry and increase the number of challenges in the industry as a whole, but the current salary level is not suitable for acquiring such human resources.Therefore, what is necessary for the sports industry now is to continue “earning as a business”. I would like to run COEDO SPORTS COLLEGE with high aspirations, with the aim of producing human resources who can create businesses from scratch in the sports industry.”
