the overseas championship.

The Soccer International event, "The ASEAN (First Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Deaf Football Championship" will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on December 4-10.

As the educational facilities for the Deaf in Yangon "Mary Chapman" (about 100 students enrolled) are next to the Japanese school in Yangon, Albirex Niigata Myanmar, a Japanese professional soccer team, has supported it continually for about two years.

Albirex is appealing support to Japanese-affiliated firms located in Myanmar  in order to make about 20 Deaf children participate in the event.

Six countries (Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Indonesia and Myanmar) have expressed participation as of September 11.
