Promotion of Sports in global

Mizuno has business locations in 12 countries and regions and deploys the Mizuno brand globally. We strongly drive its global activities regarding the promotion of sports that suit countries and regions. Typical examples are the Amsterdam Marathon that is held in the Netherlands. We have been supporting the Amsterdam Marathon since the year 2000, in which around 45,000 people from more than 100 countries participate. It has a variety of categories including full and half marathons and an 8-km run so that participants can enjoy running according to their abilities. Mizuno is providing opportunities for many people, from children to adults and from beginners to seniors all over the world, including the USA, Taiwan, South Korea, Italy and so on, to enjoy sports through sports events that are co-sponsored by us, including running, rugby, swimming and soccer, as well as sports classes that are held.
