Shimizu S-Pulse 2019 Season New Team Announcement Meeting

On January 11th the Shimizu S-Pulse 2019 Season New Uniforms, Policy and New Team Members Announcements Meeting took place from 13 p.m. on the 4th floor of the Century Hotel in Shizuoka City!
This was again a long-awaited meeting after the remarkable progress in 2018!

The new uniforms for home games and away games were unveiled and although slightly different from last year, continued with a more sober and adult design. The main color will be deep yellow and orange for home games and white with a little orange for away games.
-POLICY and FINANCES
2019 and beyond will basically follow the same path with the budget that been upgraded to 38.5 billion yen in 2018, and should aim at 40 billion yen in 2019 and 42 billion yen in 2020.
As confirmed before, this is a budget well above the average in the J1 league with sponsorship, general earnings, sales and wages taking the club to the 9th spot in a league accounting for 18 clubs.
As for this year performance targets they are still kept to a reasonable level aiming at finishing within the first 5 spots of the J1 League to improve on the excellent 8th spot achieved this year and at least reach the quarterfinals of the Levain Cup and of the Emperor’s Cup
As for future targets they are still the same, that is, Shimizu S-Pulse aims at no less than becoming J1 League Champions within 4 years and ACL Champions within 6 years.

-NEW TEAM MEMBERS
Vindicating the new coaching staff put in place in 2108 it has been re-assigned in bloc for a marked continuity in success.
As for the playing staff it has been pared down to a more reasonable size with the import of precisely targeted recruits and the confidence renewed in young players according to the club policy to develop as many of their players as possible.
All the lines are solidly doubled with an accent on re-enforcing the defense which was only average the past season and the midfield to support a very successful attack. Not only this will ensure a smooth turnover, especially with players on international duty, but also promises fierce competition for the starting spots!
The new players presented on that day were:
DF (right lateral) Elson Ferreira De Souza/nickname, Elsinho (Jersey No 18) acquired from Kawaasaki Frontale.
MF (right-footed) Keita Nakamura (Jersey No 20) recruited from V-Varen Nagasaki
MF (right-footed) Kenta Nishizawa (Jersey No 16) originally from the Shimizu S-Pulse Youth Team who the moved to Tsukuba University
GK (right-footed) Togo Umeda who graduated from the Shimizu s-Pulse Youth Team this year
