Sometime later, Yoichi is selected by the Japan Football Union to participate in a certified athlete improvement program. When he arrives at the meeting place, he meets Ryosuke Kira, who has also been selected. Once inside, Jinpachi Ego explains to the 300 selected strikers that they will be confined to a remote football training center called Blue Lock, where they will undergo survival training with the aim of increasing their individualism and creating the best striker in the world for the Japanese national team.

The last player left will be the starting forward of the team and the rest will be disqualified from playing for the national team. The first training is a game of chase, in which the person who is hit by a ball will have to hit another, and whoever has the ball when the time expires is eliminated. The lower-ranked striker, Gurimu Igarashi, starts out having the ball, and Yoichi ends up getting beaten up to become the one carrying it. Instead of choosing to take out Gurimu while he is on the ground, Yoichi risks taking out a stronger player, and just before time expires, he punches Ryosuke to take him out.
