Meiwa FC (明和FC) is an elementary school team from Saitama, the first team where Kojiro Hyuga and Takeshi Sawada played as team captains.

HistoryEdit

Meiwa is, with Nankatsu SC, the most powerful team of the Yomiuriland tournament. Kojiro Hyuga works as the "defacto" captain but Takeshi Sawada wears the captain armband. Strategically, they play a branched out 4-4-2, which resembles a 4-3-1-2, with Sawada used as a lone attacking midfielder. They supposedly play a "Win At All Costs" strategy, but Sawada and Hyuga carry most of the offensive load.
