Oita Trinita

Ōita Trinita is a Japanese football club currently playing in J1 League, having been promoted in 2018 after a 5-year absence from Japan’s top flight. The club’s home town is Ōita city, but the club draws support from Beppu, Saiki, and the entire Ōita Prefecture.

The club’s name, Trinita, is the Italian translation of the word trinity (trinità), which was the club’s original name before being changed in 1999, and Ōita, the club’s home town. The combined word expresses the will of the local citizens, companies, and government to support the team. Others connection to the italian culture can be found in the city nickname Azzurro (light blue in English).
