Isagi Yoichi, a forward, receives an invitation to join this program shortly after his team missed an opportunity to attend the Nationals because he passed the ball to his less-experienced teammate, who obviously missed the shot, which was on Isagi's cowardice suggests not daring to complete the game on her own.

Their coach will be Ego Jinpachi, who wants to end the idea of ​​"football's weak Japan" with a radical new training program: isolating and confining 300 young forwards in a prison-like facility called "Blue Lock" for a rigorous training that will include "the greatest most talented and selfish striker in the world".
