JSA arranges London sumo tour

The Japan Sumo Association said Thursday that Japanese wrestlers will take part in an exhibition tour in London in October 2009.

The five-day tour will be the first for wrestlers in the sport's elite makuuchi division in the English capital since 1991. The tournament will be held at the Royal Albert Hall, though dates have yet to be finalized.

There have been 13 exhibition tours abroad planned by the JSA so far, including events in Las Vegas, South Korea and China.
