In a stark contrast to stadium food in my native England, the food available here at FC Gifu is pretty damn good. Let me take you around some of the culinary delights to be found in FC Gifu’s “yataimura” (food village).

Anyone for meat? This Brazilian store came for the Kyoto Sanga game last year. I hope it comes back!

And my very favourite – the Hida beef croquette. Superb!

So, plenty to keep your appetite under control, if not your calorie intake. Next time you’re at the stadium, get involved and get some good food down you before, during or after watching some (good*) football.
