OUAFC (Oxford University Association Football Club) last visited Japan in 1969 on a major tour with a combined team from both Oxford and Cambridge. This time Oxford will be here on their own and will play against major universities in Japan as a way to foster cultural exchange and friendship. Training game with Jiyugakuen College is also planned (11 Dec).

The Cambridge & Oxford Society Tokyo has invited the team members to their second Tuesday get-together which will be held in the evening of 9 December. Details can be found here. (
