As is the trend these days in Japan, FC Gifu have appointed a cute young girl to act as the “supporter manager” – although what will happen is she will a focal point of PR activities.
The cute young lady in question is Nene Ito, a performer from the very popular idol group Nogizaka 46.

Ms. Ito is from Gifu and, interestingly, started on the road to stardom as part of the FC Gifu cheerleading group “Green Angels”. She said about this appointment:
- “I’m very excited to get this chance to help FC Gifu and Gifu itself. When I was a junior high school student, I was in the Green Angels and I also used to come to games at the stadium. I can’t wait to start doing PR things for the club, it is very exciting!”
I look forward to meeting Miss Nene! If you want to follow her on twitter, you can at @nene_ito1212
