Molten and GAKU-MC Collaboration Assembled Soccer Ball MY FOOTBALL KIT on sale

Molten will sell MY FOOTBALL KIT, an assembled soccer ball created in collaboration with artist GAKU-MC, at the Hibiya Music Festival to be held June 8-9.
The purpose of this collaborative sale is to donate a portion of the proceeds from the purchase of the product to a recipient of support.
Upon purchase, one MY FOOTBALL KIT will be given to the purchaser, and a portion of the proceeds will be used to deliver the MY FOOTBALL KIT to the recipients of the aid.
(We will discuss with GAKU-MC to determine the recipients.)

MY FOOTBALL KIT provides children with education (spatial awareness and three-dimensional sensation), a chance to play sports, and an experience of growth.

By collaborating with GAKU-MC, who agrees with Molten's MY FOOTBALL KIT philosophy of contributing to children's growth through soccer, this project will expand the circle of support and provide opportunities for children in need of experience.

(Support in the past)

The ball design is the original MY FOOTBALL KIT with GAKU-MC's logo, and the collaboration sales will start at the MY FOOTBALL KIT booth at the Hibiya Music Festival 2024. 100 pieces are limited to support sales.

At the booth, in addition to selling MY FOOTBALL KIT, you can experience (free of charge) a soccer game using MY FOOTBALL KIT designed by GAKU-MC.

Let's expand your circle of support with MY FOOTBALL KIT, a collaboration in which your purchase will lead to support.
