Previously On Blue Lock Chapter 169 :
Chapter 169 brings with it an unexpected revelation. Jinpachi Ego declares the current League they have been playing is in fact being properly shot to be aired as a famous reality show, and football fans all over the world get to watch the “behind-the-scenes” adventures of the future star footballers. He also reveals that their fights have been recorded as well. Raichi and Igaguri are visibly upset and shocked at this news.
The chapter opens with the bidding scene, where the players are auctioned for the companies, that offer high prices based on their performance in the previous match. Isagi gets an offer of 17 Million Yen from Berserk Dortmund, while Kunigami, Bachira and Ness get offers for 24 Million, 32 Million and 50 Million respectively. Kaiser is auctioned at a whopping 300 Million by Basterd Munchen.
Jinpachi further goes on to explain the main objectives of the league. The players had to be aggressive about stealing the spotlight, so they can show their worth to the teams buying the players. Therefore, winning is not as important as being noticed. Jinpachi stresses on how the players must do whatever it takes to prove their worth- even if it means playing a position that they normally don’t. This makes Raichi and Igaguri regret not playing the match. The pressure of performing and making a good first impression is also discussed. The manga chapter ends with Jinpachi announcing that the next match, which is between Basterd Munchen and Manshine City, will be held 10 days later.
