Why are Japanese fans indifferent to Asian Cup?

After Japan overtook Saudi Arabia, I hastily texted a Japanese friend to watch the quarter-final match. The answer is: “Asian Cup? Which tournament is it? ”.

In excitement, I texted all Japanese friends to create a memorable football viewing session. Any more wonderful experience when Vietnamese fans are far away from the country can watch the quarter-finals against Japan on Japanese soil.

The Japanese celebrated jubilantly in Shibuya after reaching the knock-out World Cup, but the Asian Cup was almost unconcerned.

Takahashi snapped a bit at the phone and then “countered” with images of thousands of Japanese filling the legendary Shibuya (Tokyo) 6 after the Green Samurai lowered Poland to enter the knockout round of the 2018 World Cup. “The match ended at 1 am (Japanese time), but Tokyo still exploded in the celebration party”, Takahashi said. So what’s more amazing when we watch football.

Except for Tokyo, where there is intense interference between Japanese culture and foreign culture – other regions in Japan still have only a very modest love for the ball. rock. To them, baseball is the No. 1 sport. According to statistics from Statista, the number of Japanese fans is up to 44.91 million in 2015, while the number of people who accept themselves is Football fans are only about 10.9 million people.

For the Japanese, the World Cup is a big event, but the Asian Cup is not. It can be said that while Vietnamese people watch football because of their intense love for the red-shirted soldiers, a part of the Japanese follow the green Samurai simply because of the national spirit.
