Sanfrecce Team 2019

Sanfrecce Hiroshima is a professional association football club based in Asaminami-ku, Hiroshima in Japan. It competes in the J1 League. The club's name comes from the union of the word 'San' (three in Japanese) and the Italian word 'frecce' (arrows). This is based on the story of Mori Motonari who told his three sons to brake a single arrow (it's so easy), then he asked them to brake three arrows held together (this is very difficult) so he showed them that the union makes strong. The team was founded in 1938 as Toyo Kogyo Soccer Club and played in the semi-professional Japan Soccer League, winning the title 4 times in a row. In 1981 the club changed the name in Mazda SC. In 1992 it became "Sanfrecce Hiroshima".
