The Cramer in the title refers to Dettmar Cramer [1] who was a German football player and coach. Cramer is considered to be the father of modern football in Japan. He died a few days before the manga's first chapter so Naoshi Arakawa named the series "Farewell My Dear Cramer" as a tribute to continue growing Japanese football.
