Mitakihara Homecoming 2071: That 70's Homecoming



Mitakihara Homecoming 2071: That 70's Homecoming

September 28, 2071

Homecoming Week has been a tradition at Mitakihara University for six decades, with the first edition taking place in 2011. Now, the University is proud to host the 61st edition of its fall showpiece event. This year's theme is "That 70's Homecoming." The Homecoming Chair this year is Saki Komura, a freshman English major from Tokyo, Japan and the fiancee of freshman left end Kazuki S. Biyik.



"I read about the 1970s from the numerous archives at Aoi Yuuki Library," said Komura at a promotional event at Madoka Square. "The 1970's were a turbulent time for the world, but the fashion and social trends during that era were very progressive and lot of the styles of that era are part of the current era here. It was so fascinating to check out everything that went on a century ago. 

"This year, we're celebrating the 1970s by going with the theme of that era. We're encouraging students, fans and alumni to embrace a little nostalgia this year so that we kick off the 2070s in style. This is also the first time in a decade that we're hosting the Homecoming Game at Mitakihara Stadium, since the Sakura Bowl is going through expansion and cannot be used. It's nice to do a little rewind times too at this event because it shows you that we do have a long history here at Mitakihara University. Even better...the Homecoming Game is held on the university's birthday!"

A number of other events will also take place leading up to the Homecoming Game against the Oklahoma Sooners on October 3, 2071 at 12:30 p.m. PT/3:30 p.m. ET. The game will be televised globally in English, French and Japanese by Radio Madoka in HDTV and on mobile via the Madoka Online app.
