Bardral URAYASU Futbol Sala was established in 1998 and is now one of the Top 3 futsal teams in Japan. The club consist of 6 teams categories in total, including the First Team, Youth Team, and the Women’s Team. Now, the captain of the First Team is Shota Hoshi, who has strengthened the reputation of Bardral URAYASU for many years. The name “Bardral” is derived from a combination of Barco (“boat/ship” in Spanish) and Dragón (“dragon” in Spanish) that symbolizes its image reflected in the sky, making a leap from Japan to Asia then to the rest of the world. This is the ultimate goal of the leading Futsal team from Chiba.
Mr. Ryusei SHIOYA, President of Bardral URAYASU FS, says, “It is an important step for URAYASU as this represents a first-time commitment jointly with a Thai sportswear brand to produce our jersey for the team for 3 years. Our goal is to be the world’s top Futsal team, so we need to plan all aspects of the team operations efficiently and consider every details to lead our team to great success. A selection of jerseys producer is one of the most important issues we concern ourselves. We have seen the growth of the Warrix brand in brand building, quality development, manufacturing innovation, and unique design, as well as the use of high-grade fabric to offer an ultimate comfort and flexibility, enabling players to show their great performance on the field. This makes Warrix an outstanding brand, and thusly suitable for our team.”
Mr. Wisan Wanasaksrisakul says, “The design of the URAYASU jersey is inspired by symbols on the club’s emblem, i.e. The Dragon, Sea, and Colours of Wine Red and Champagne Gold. For the Home Team, the player kit is in Red, and Gold for the goalkeeper. For the Away Team, White is selected for players and blue for the goalkeeper. The shirt is smart-fitted and tailored with 100% polyester fabric to promote agility and elasticity, with a soft touch and better air ventilation. The shirts move sweat away from the body to keep the players comfortable, the standard of jerseys is the same as Warrix produced for Thai national teams last year.”
URAYASU needs the designed pattern on the shirt to be more subtle and durable, so Warrix uses Dye Sublimation Printing Technology that offers distinct and light patterns. Embroidery technique is used on the club’s emblem for outstanding appearance, and looks different from the patterns. Edges are decorated with cloths in different colours, and collars are trimmed with gold-color strip, representing the dignity of The Dragon. The triangle pattern tells the story of their motherland, the town that is surrounded by the sea on all 3 sides.
“Besides jerseys for Bardral URAYASU, Warrix also works with the club to develop premium futsal shoes for their players. The club will participate in the production process from the beginning; players will test the product qualities in all steps to actually make perfect shoes for professional futsal players. Warrix will also offer more futsal shoes in new designs for Thai fans very soon. We are committed to continue developing high quality products to fully bring this Thai brand on by further tapping into the international market in the future,” Mr. Wisan Wanasaksrisakul adds.
Mr. Adisak Benjasiriwan, Chairman of the Thai Futsal Committee comments on this agreement, saying, “We are honored to have an opportunity to witness the cooperation between Thai entrepreneurs and the Japanese team. It proves the potential of the Warrix brand in aspects of product quality and international brand awareness. All the time that the brand has been in charge of Thai futsal team jerseys, we have been impressed with its high technology and professional operations that deliver high quality products.”
