The fourth "Deaf Futsal Festival 2016" was sponsored by the West Japan Deaf Soccer Association in Suzuka-shi, Mie Prefecture in western Japan on April 16, in which about 100 people participated.
In the event, a former Japanese team director gave a technical guidance, and then the participants divided into 13 teams played.
In the exchange game, the National Deaf teams, both men and women, took on local soccer teams. All the hearing players of the home teams used ear plugs in the game.
