A passionate challenge for young people full of dreams and hopes in futsal in Cambodia.

    Realize a dream

    Don't end your dreams with dreams. I want to create a world where many young people talk about their dreams and challenge their dreams with all their might.
    We will do our best so that those who see our challenge will have the courage to do so.
    A place where everyone can talk about their dreams and take on challenges. ARIGATO UNITED was born in Phnom Penh in June 2020.

    Belongs to the top category of Cambodian futsal

    ARIGATO UNITED participates in Cambodia's top category futsal competition. We are aiming to enter the Futsal Cambodian League, which is said to be about to start, within two years. The popularity of futsal in Cambodia is very high, and the popularity is increasing year by year. The number of FB Live views of the domestic cup exceeded 200,000, and the broadcast of the first match of the ARIGATO UNITED group league was also watched more than 75,000 times. It is also attracting attention in the field of sports marketing (advertising), such as a major beer maker sponsoring the tournament.
    It is expected to be even more exciting for the Southeast Asian Games to be held in Cambodia in 2023.

    New challenge for The First Japanese Cambodian Leaguer

    Takahito Ota, who became the first Japanese professional soccer player in Cambodia in 2011, is the general manager of ARIGATO UNITED. With 12 years of professional career and 10 years of experience and knowledge in the Cambodian soccer business, a new challenge of club management has begun. As Cambodia's first and only Japanese futsal club, we are also attracting attention for activities outside the pitch in partnership with local Japanese companies. As a player, he is expected to turn into a futsal player and inspire the team even on the pitch.

    Business development in collaboration with partner companies

    Financing is important in running a sports club. Many football clubs in Cambodia are owner-dependent, and many withdraw for personal reasons. ARIGATO UNITED aims to build a win-win relationship as a partner company, not just providing funding from sponsors. Our main initiatives with partner companies include sports marketing and business matching, and we are also considering investing in Cambodia and joint ventures in the future. We aim to be a team that can win not only on the pitch but also off the pitch.
