J.League officials visited Bhutan earlier this month, distributing donated club uniforms to local children and cooperating with football clinics held by the local football federation.
This is the J.League’s fourth time donating shirts collected from fans. The program started in 2011 when J.League representatives went to Cambodia. They went to East Timor in 2013, and last year to Myanmar.
This year the league chose Bhutan and collected more than 700 football shirts. The donation drive was announced through the league’s website and social media accounts.
J.League officials spent five days in Bhutan and visited two cities, Paro and Thimphu.
Besides giving the uniforms, the J.League cooperated with the Bhutan Football Federation to host a football clinic in each city.
