We, Cerezo Osaka, always look at the world and develop players who can compete on the world stage. The academy players are called "Cereza" (meaning cherry in Spanish), and they are trained to embody the club's philosophy, "SAKURA SPECTACLE". We utilize our worldwide network, including Europe and Asia. By letting them experience the world from an early stage, we develop a large-scale player who will attract Japan, Asia, and the world.
ORIGIN OF TEAM NAME
Cerezo = "Sakura (=Cherry blossoms)" in Spanish. Cherry blossoms are the city flower of Osaka, and are also representative flowers of Japan. Rooted in the local community, from here in Osaka to a club that represents Japan, and a club that makes dreams bloom in full glory in the world. We will continue to grow together with our supporters. We put that thought into the name of the club.
Our emblem represents the trinity of the Osaka Football Club, the local community and football, with an image of a cherry blossom, stripes symbolizing rivers in the Aquapolis Osaka, and the "wolf," one of our team characters placed next to them.
The crown at the center and the thorns outside represent respectively the "confidence" to someday reign supreme in the football world as champions, and a "solid defense."
Our main team character is a wolf, an animal that is intelligent and quick-witted with the power to unite and hunt in a group. His official name is "Noble Valiente Hache Lobito de Cerezo," which is Spanish for a noble and brave "son of a wolf" from Cerezo, a family of good lineage. His nickname is Lobby.
This is Lobby's mother, who supports her son and Cerezo Osaka enthusiastically and sometimes strictly.
Her official name is "Elegante Esplendida Madam Lobina de Cerezo," which is Spanish for an elegant and splendid “Madam wolf” from Cerezo, a family of good lineage. Her nickname is Madam Lobina.
