Frontale - Delorean 1

Current leaders celebrated their 1-0 win over Jubilo Iwata with one of Hollywood’s most famous automobiles.

Following a late game-winning own goal, the team posed for post-match photos with a replica DeLorean straight from the Back to the Future trilogy.


Captain Kengo Nakamura enthusiastically hopped inside for photos, followed by South Korea goalkeeper Jung Sung-Ryong whose 190-centimetre frame would surely not have allowed the car’s iconic gull-wing doors to close.


The legendary replica was “pulled over” by officials in a halftime “safety performance” presented by match sponsor Yokohama Toyopet. The driving demonstration is a yearly event at the tracked Todoroki Stadium, which has also hosted F1 racers at Frontale matches.
