His presence at Raimon inspires Mark to try and rebuild the team
by getting Axel to join him. Everything was looking great until
Mark finds out that Axel had quit soccer due to “an incident”.
Although Mark insisted, Axel refused to play. Then one day, out of
nowhere, they received a request for a game from the “ROYAL

that is facing elimination, which battles hard to grow into a team that
might just shake up the World!
JOIN THE LEGEND!
The licensing strategy for Inazuma Eleven has begun with the positioning of the series in several TV channels in Spain, Italy, France and Portugal, in the same period of time, and a continuance of the series in these and new countries during the next 3 years.
For this long-duration license, they´re conducting integrated management in each business area, to maximize synergies between all lines of licensing, merchandising, television, video game, publishing, Internet and DVD, with the final goal to create the "Inazuma Brand" at an European level.
Alongside the official web of ownership, "www.inazumaeleven.tv" in several European languages, Inazuma Eleven also has an information dissemination campaign of the series that takes advantage of the new technologies, particularly social networks, creating its own Facebook fanpages, Twitter, Tuenti and YouTube, where its fans can find out all the latest news, participate in contests, and always be aware of the latest news both about the series and the entire user experience that surrounds it.
Its licensing program extends to a Pan-European level, led by the launch of the 1st game for Nintendo DS for this property, which was released to the market last January 2011 in several European countries, and has already reached a large number of units sold. The brand counts greatly in the Spanish, Portuguese and Italian market, with a clothing line, mugs and collectibles as well as key merchandise categories like back to school or trading cards regarded as one of the differentiated products of the brand which will be launched at the European level in the series at the same time as it begins broadcasting in different European countries.
Other products like toys, pvc figures, collectible stickers with album, stationery, balls, footwear, accessories for children, comics and editorial products, among others, are on the distributors shelves since September 2011, along with promotions for cakes, pastries and snacks, both in Italy and Spain.

Inazuma Eleven began airing in its home country, Japan, in October 2008. From its first episode viewership rates exceeded the ratings of other popular series in that country, which led to TV TOKYO to program it on Prime Time.
In Korea, it aired from the fall of 2009 in the JEI-TV channel, where the program has three performances per day. In January, 2010, it began its broadcast on the animated children´s channel Tooniverse (Cartoon Universe).
