1994 World Cup

Invitation from Pele

Mr. Kadono was invited to a dinner party when His Majesty Akihito visited the United States for the first time in 1994, but unfortunately, Mr. Kadono was absent from the dinner party because he was invited by Pele to the World Cup of soccer before that. In the match between Brazil and Italy, Brazil won after a close match, and Pele took off the World Cup tie and gave it to Mr. Kadono as a present at the party after the match.
The tie was donated to the Nisshin High School soccer club in Higashi Osaka.
