Mitakihara Homecoming 2064: Your City. Your Team.

By Kotone Noda

September 29, 2064

This week, Mitakihara University is once again celebrating a tradition that goes back five decades plus: it's Homecoming Week. This year's theme is "Your City. Your Team." Marie Ikeno, the fiancee of freshman quarterback Haruki Takayama, is this year's Homecoming Chair. Ikeno is a freshman marine biology major.

"It's pretty straightforward as to what this theme is," Ikeno said at the promotional event at Madoka Square. "This is Your City, Mitakihara, and the Mitakihara Magi are Your Team. Of course, the Mitakihara Town Sports Club dispute that but there is nothing to dispute about, since we share the same resources and a number of staff at the Sports Club are Madoka alums.

"We call on all alumni to return to M-Town and embrace their city and their team once again. This will always be Your City and Your Team because as a student, you were a part of watching the magic unfold and this week, we want you to see it again."

A number of events will take place leading up to the Homecoming Game against the Washington Huskies on October 4, 2064 at 3:30 p.m. PT/6:30 p.m. ET. The game will be televised by City, TVA Sports, ESPN, NHK and BBC.
