About Us

Thank you for visiting Tricolore Pride!

Tricolore Pride is a Fansite created and run by supporters of Yokohama F.Marinos. The site was created in 2008 for the benefit of the clubs ever growing non-Japanese fan base. Our goal is to help bridge the language barrier and keep supporters up to date with all the daily comings and goings at our beloved club.

Tricolore Pride has gone through a few changes since it’s inception, we now boast a page dedicated to club songs, a twitter feed for live score updates for each and every game, and the addition of a few new team members to help with the running of the site for season 2014! In this new version of the site, we aim to not only keep with the tradition of posting news and game results and reports, but to bring new features and insight to followers, readers and fans of F.Marinos across the world.

At Tricolore Pride, we would like to play our part in creating a global community for existing fans of Yokohama F.Marinos, and hope that our passion for the club creates a few new supporters in the process.

As always, we would love to hear any feedback so if you have any questions, news, suggestions for improving the site, or are planning on coming to a game and wouldn’t mind having somebody to chat to and cheer with, then drop us a line anytime!

The Tricolore Pride Team

Brendan

A Marinos supporter since the 2002 season and founding member of the site, Brendan attended his first Marinos game in 2003 and hasn’t looked back since, seeing our boys win the J-league title twice and compete in the Asian Champions League during his time as a supporter. Brendan is the co-founder of Tricolore Pride and an all round winner. He can usually be found somewhere behind the goal drinking beer with Blake whilst singing(?) his lungs out.

Did you know? Brendan is prone to a babycham and a shandy every now and then.

Blake

Tricolore Pride’s resident Kiwi. Blake became a fan primarily due to the antics of a certain #22 at the 2004 Asian Cup, and began to follow F-Marinos soon after by attending games after he moved to Yokohama in 2005. In his own words “I’m the one who can be relied upon to give un-insightful and possibly stupid observations of the game, and the fortunes of our beloved tricolore.  I’ll be the large guy beside Brendan that will be accompanied by a 2 foot version of myself at most games.  Come and say “Hi”.”

Did you know? Blake is a big rugby fan and still pulls on the jersey to play for his local rugby side every so often.

Our representative in North America, Dan watches F.Marinos games from his home in Ontario, Canada. Whilst travelling around Japan on vacation, Dan took in a number of J-League games before finding his home amongst the brigada at the Nissan stadium.  A keen collector of jerseys, Dan and his wife Aki make the pilgrimage to Yokohama most years and even met the team when travelling to Hiroshima for the game vs Sanfrecce in April March 2013!

Did you know? Daniel is so well known in Japan that Ippei-Kun once confused Jamie for him.

Jamie

Hailing from Glasgow, Scotland, Jamie has followed F.Marinos for 2 seasons and made his first trip to the Nissan stadium in April of 2012. As a fan of Celtic FC, Jamie followed the fortunes of club legend Shunsuke Nakamura after he left Glasgow and discovered the joyous ball of love that is Yokohama F.Marinos in the process. A charlatan of the highest order, Jamie can also be found at the Nissan every so often.

Did you know? Jamie spent a summer teaching kids in Thailand the words to Celtic songs as a method of teaching English.

Tony

mysteryman

Our very own international man of mystery, Tony has been following F.Marinos since 2009. Following from Melbourne, Australia, Tony provides valuable insight and a great understanding of the tactical side of the game. Tony also spent a couple of years writing his own fan page before joining Tricolore Pride on a free transfer in 2013. A fan of Melbourne Victory, Tony has promised to sit on the half way line and back neither team if the two sides clash in this years Asian Champions League.

Did you know? Only 4 people have ever seen Tony. You weren’t one of them; you wouldn’t be reading this if you were…

Stuart

Stuart arrived in Japan in 1988 and began following F.Marinos home (and often away!) at the beginning of the 2013 season with the goal of spending some more time with his son Zen… As good a reason as any! Stuart and Zen can now be found travelling the length and breadth of the country to see the side play. Based in Yokosuka, Stuart sometimes heads to the matches sporting his kilt, a tip of the cap to his Scottish ancestry.

    Need to sell Tricolore Pride gear.

    Hey thanks for the suggestion, Rick!

    Actually we are thinking of having some T-Shirts made but none of us are any good at designing!
    Maybe we could find somebody local to design us some cool looking Tees…

  3. Blake says:

    Working on some ideas, Rick.

    We have some really great Justin Beiber ideas and also have a sketch involving Ja Ja Binks and a hilarious quotation by none other than Nicolas Cage. It could be quite magnificent.

    There are a couple of other ideas lolling around too.

    I know a guy with some tee designing experience…

    Hey! My wife and I are Sounders FC supporters, but living in Japan now, we need to find our “local” club. Is this the right site for locating other loud, obnoxious, singing, dancing, drinking fans?
