Kawasaki Frontale will donate ¥50 million prize money received for finishing runnerup in last November’s Nabisco Cup final to Kawasaki city, the J. League club said Friday.

Frontale initially wanted to hand back the prize following criticism of their players’ behavior during the Nabisco Cup award ceremony. But the J. League decided the use of the money would be limited to promoting soccer in the community and improving player education.
