The 48th National Deaf Athletic Meet will be held for the first time in Okinawa Prefecture, Japan's southern island, on September 27-28.

Ten games, including track and field, volleyball, etc., will take place in various places within the prefecture. About 1,500 athletes and officials are expected to join from all over Japan.

The organizing committee is selling goods, such as a T-shirt and a sticker, for funding the sport event, and calling for donations and orders for the advertisement to be printed in the program book.
