Dear Asian Football Community,
Asia is the largest continent in the world, with a population of over four billion. Yet its beauty lies not in its size, but in its diversity.
From the sights of the Arabian Peninsula and steppes of Central Asia, through the peaks of the Himalayas, all the way to the tropical forests of Southeast Asia, and the bustling urban centers of Seoul and Tokyo, our continent has it all.
We use many languages, come from many cultures, and hold many beliefs, but we also share a love of one sport. Our mission, while respecting and appreciating Asia’s diversity, is to bring the continent together through football.
The Internet and the English language are our medium, but what will really ignite life into Football Channel is its people. That doesn’t just mean our dedicated and talented journalists from every corner of Asia, but also our passionate readers who we hope will become a valuable part of our family.
Through this site and our presences on social media, our aim is to become the ultimate resource for all those who love Asian football, just as our parent website Football Channel is Japan’s authority on the global game.
With the opening of our site we sincerely hope you’ll join our community, help us grow and to improve, and be a part of Football Channel as we become the real voice of Asian football.
Thank you, and welcome to Football Channel Asia.
– Cesare Polenghi, Chief Editor
