The annual match between Mito and national champions Kashima Antlers will take place on Saturday, February 21. Kickoff will be at 2PM at Kashima Stadium. Tickets will be available for 1000, 2000, and 3000 yen, and parking at private lots is a 500-1000 yen charge depending on walking distance.
Mito has never won this exhibition match, losing the previous installments 2-0, 2-1, 4-0, and 4-1. This year Mito looks to have a strong team with a chance but no team looks strong compared to Japan's most successful club.
