After two years of corona restraint, Eintracht Frankfurt is going abroad again this winter. Hessians are already flying to Japan for a week in November.
In the pre-corona years, it was not unusual for Eintracht Frankfurt to travel to distant lands during the winter break. Training camps were not uncommon in Abu Dhabi or the United States. As is well known, traveling has been a little more difficult in the last two years.

After two years and the x Corona variant, the Hessians are now ready for the long winter trip: from November 13 to November 20, Eintrach will set up his tents in Japan. Not for a training camp, but for an image tour including two Test matches. The Europa League winners will play Urawa Red Diamonds in Tokyo on 16 November and Gamba Osaka in Yokohama on 19 November.
Apart from sports activities, cultural and business appointments for the people of Frankfurt are also on the programme. Eintracht speaks somewhat oddly that “the measures serve an overall effort to bring the essence of the reigning Europa League winner to the people and companies in Nippon through one-week attendance, two game comparisons and live contact with fans.” Huh”. The Champions League club wants to open new markets.
With Uwe Beino, without a World Cup participant
The Japanese market is perhaps the most important for entrants in Asia. Along with Makoto Hasebe and Daiichi Kamada, Hessian has – so far – two active identification figures in their ranks. There is also a brand ambassador along with club legend Uwe Ben, who played for the Urawa Reds in Japan in the mid-1990s. It goes without saying that Bein will be participating in a trip to the Far East. However, whether Kamada will be there or not, it is not certain.
Reason: Participants of the Eintracht World Cup will not travel by flight. Until then, they will be in Qatar with their national teams, where the World Cup begins on November 21. It is quite possible that Kamada will be called up to the Japanese national team and thus miss out on the home tour with Eintracht. The Bundesliga would then continue into mid-January 2023.
