With 12 teams in the NPB, 57 teams across the top three levels of the J.League, and 36 teams across the top two levels of the B.League, this adds up to 105 sport teams in total.
The collaboration is called "Sports 2021 x Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba." ufotable has drawn an original illustration to be used for merchandise and promotional purposes, previewed below:
In addition, illustrations for each and every mascot for the 105 teams will be unveiled at a later date. They will be used for the merchandise to be sold during the collaboration period.
Each league will hold its collaboration at a different period:
- NPB: August 13 to October 21
