Football does not stop, and if you add that today we have an anime like “blue lock“Well, the magic of this sport is already reaching very ambitious levels. Besides, what if I told you that there is a genius who decided to take advantage of the anime appeal of “Blue Lock” to promote football in the United States…? Do you believe me? Because it’s the purest truth. Not only that, but the anime directly shook hands with the Los Angeles Galaxy, one of the most well-known football clubs in the United States.

Blue Lock takes the leap into real life with its own football tournament

Before giving you all the details of this “Blue Lock” football tournament, I leave you with promotional image who shared by himself:

And now yes keep in mind all the following details about this event that will bring together sports and anime fans:

  • To begin, it must be said that the Blue Lock X Los Angeles Galaxy tournament will take place during the Saturday, March 25, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (PDT time). This will be held at Dignity Health Sports Park, in Carson. The tournament will have a estimated duration 3 hours.
  • To participate, you must play in teams of up to 3 players (players must be at least 18 years old). The positive thing about it is that it is not even necessary to have teammates, since the organization itself will take care of form teams between players who present themselves individually. It is now possible to register for freewith a limit until March 24, 2023.
  • The tournament will be held as follows: Following a format of ‘king of the track‘, will be disputed 10 simultaneous matches against teams 3 against 3. Each match will last in total 4 minutes with 1 minute breaka scenario that will continue for a total of 90 minutes.
  • The winning team of each match will move on to the next field until one of the two fields for the top positions is reached. On the contrary, those who lose matches will have to lower their position and accumulate victories again to continue progressing.
  • Last resort, the two teams that win their matches in the two most important areas, having exceeded 90 minutes, will compete for the first two places. The losing teams in said areas will compete for positions 3 and 4.
  • Tournament winners will receive a special BLUE LOCK x Saturdays Football x LA Galaxy pack, while all participants will receive a Cruchyroll code. to test the service completely free of charge.

Will we ever have a tournament like this in Spain? Well, the truth is that of all the types of anime-related events that take place that don’t reach our country, this seems to me to be one of the most logical. At the end, In Spain, football is thousands of times more relevant than in the United States, so I can only imagine the (positive) commotion that would arise if out of nowhere Barça, Madrid, Atlético or whoever which club also announced a collaborative tournament with “Blue Serrure”. Honestly it’s now or never for a crossing of that type.
