JAL NEXT ATHLETE MILES - Project supporting the sports world of tomorrow
The next generation of athletes may not necessarily have access to an adequate training environment, leaving some of them with no choice but to abandon the idea of going abroad due to financial considerations.
In light of this situation, the JAL Group has launched JAL NEXT ATHLETE MILES as a project to encourage JAL Mileage Bank members to donate their miles to contribute to the further promotion of sports and the development of a performance environment for the next generation of athletes. Sports bring courage, hopes, and dreams to people both in Japan and around the world, while young athletes represent the future in their sports communities. When you choose to donate your miles to a sports association, JAL will match the cash equivalent of the donated miles at a 1:1 ratio. The combined sum will be donated to the relevant sports association, where it will be used to support the purchase of sports equipment, help fund travel expenses and sports tournaments, and otherwise help support their program.
Through this initiative, JAL Mileage Bank members, the participating sports associations, and JAL will be cooperating together to help develop an environment in which young athletes can challenge themselves to achieve their dreams of competing at an international level.

Next Athlete Mile acceptance

Application period

From June 9, 2014 (Mon.) (Japan time)

Mileage for application

Donations will be accepted in units of 2,000 miles on JAL's website.
Counting one mile as one Japanese yen, JAL will match the cash equivalent of the donated miles, and then donate the combined sum to the relevant sports association.

How to apply

To donate your miles to a specific sports association, please scroll down to the "Select the sports association that you wish to support" section and click the "Donate miles" button for the sports association that you want to support. To donate your miles evenly to all of the participating sports associations, please scroll down to the "Support all participating sports associations" section and click the "Donate miles" button.

  • * If you wish to apply for 2 units or more to the same sports association or to all participating sports associations, please call the JMB Center responsible for the region of your registered address.

If you are not logged in, the login screen will appear when you click the "Donate miles" button. Please log in to your account to apply.
Please check your mileage balance and apply within the mileage available to you.
Please note that applications cannot be cancelled under any circumstances.

About mileage deduction

Mileage will be deducted within a week of the application date.

  • * Members with mileage which is valid until the end of each month will be eligible for mileage deduction if the application is made by 23:59 on the last day of each respective month in Japan time.
  • * You can confirm your transaction from "Record Details" in Mileage Details (balance inquiry) after mileage deduction. Please note that the transaction will be displayed as "NEXT ATHLETE MILE - (name of the sport)" in the Record Details.
  • * If your mileage balance is less than the applied mileage at the time of mileage deduction, mileage will be deducted in units of 2,000 miles in the order in which the "Donate miles" button for each sports association was clicked, with the mileage balance as the upper limit.

Example: If you clicked the "Donate miles" button for soccer and rugby in that order (total of 4,000 miles) but your mileage balance is 3,000 miles at the time of mileage deduction, 2,000 miles will be deducted for soccer (which is the first sports association that was clicked).

  • * If your mileage balance is less than 2,000 miles at the time of mileage deduction, your application will be cancelled.
  • * If you wish to apply for 2 units or more to the same sports association or to all participating sports associations, please call the JMB Center responsible for the region of your registered address.
