Bayern Munich announced on Tuesday that their partnership with the Japanese Football Association has been extended until 2024 in order to encourage young Japanese players to join the club’s academy.

“Japan is one of the strongest Asian football countries.” “At the 2002 World Cup, I was able to witness the Japanese enthusiasm for football,” Bayern chief executive and former Germany goalkeeper Oliver Kahn said in a club statement.

“The continuation of our collaboration with the Japanese Football Association brings us together in the pursuit of a common goal: developing world-class players.”

JFA president Kozo Tashima has stated that he wants more Japanese female players to train with the Bavarian giants.

“In the near future, we hope to send female youth players to Bayern through our player exchange program for mutual development,” Tashima said in a statement released by Bayern.

“We can learn a lot from Bayern, especially in terms of player development.”
