“Picking up trash is a sport!”
SPOGOMI was born in Japan in 2008 as a sport in which 3-person teams compete against each other to pick up as much rubbish as possible. Points are awarded according to the amount and type of trash picked up in a given area within a set time limit.
SPOGOMI not only eliminates litter through competition, but it is also a sport where anyone can win with the right combination of teamwork, strategy and tactics.
About SPOGOMI world cup
After the success of SPOGOMI in Japan and around Asia, 2023 sees 20 teams from national selections around the world have the opportunity to join in a special international SPOGOMI World Cup event. This is the first time that SPOGOMI will be held worldwide in order to share the message of positive environmental action in the community and reduce the amount of trash that flows into the ocean.
The winners of the qualifying tournaments will represent their country and receive a ticket to the World Cup scheduled to be held in Tokyo, Japan in November 2023.
About the SPOGOMI UK Selection
The beautiful parks of Hackney Marshes will serve as the pitch for the first ever UK SPOGOMI Litter Picking World Cup qualifiers. Join fellow litter pickers, enjoy the greenery, and help to keep these legendary London parks looking gorgeous.
Hackney Marshes is a mixture of natural and tended park with woodlands, fields, playing fields and nature reserves. It is popular throughout the year with locals, and regularly hosts events like the Hackney Marathon. Unfortunately this means lots of litter.
SPOGOMI is appropriate for families, friends, and community groups, and combines gentle exercise with reducing litter, and beautifying the community.
Register your team on the official SPOGOMI UK site now and get ready to litter pick like you’ve never litter picked before!
SPOGOMI UK is organised for the Social Sports Initiative by Cross Media Ltd.
It is supported by The Nippon Foundation and Fast Retailing
