Tomorrow's match will have a significant meaning to us-Team Manager Petrovic   

Comment from Team Manager Petrovic the day before the Saitama City Cup match against Omiya Ardija

Though the match we will be playing tomorrow will be a pre-season match, since it will be a match fought by two local Saitama teams, I find a significant meaning to this match.
I think the match will provide both teams with such a great test opportunity tomorrow. I believe that our players already know that they need to have high motivations to play in this match regardless whether I tell them so or not. However, I would like people to understand that this will still be a preparation match before the opening of the J. League. Either way, it is great to see all tickets have sold out even though this is still a pre-season match.
