Kumi Sugimoto (杉本 久美, sugimoto kumi) is the 2nd assistant manager in Nankatsu middle school for the Boys' Fight arc. She does also appear in the Holland Youth Manga Special and was supporting Nankatsu until the Golden Generation ended high school.

She is a friend and kouhai of Sanae, with whom she does not only share her love of football but also is in love with Nankatsu's captain, Tsubasa. She's a bit more straight-forward than Sanae, and no doubt she does confess her feelings to Tsubasa but, in turn, he confesses that he does indeed love Sanae. Kumi tells him that she already knew that, but it did really helped her confessing her feelings to clear her doubts. She goes as far as to warn him to hurry to declare to Sanae (since Koshi Kanda was around her at the time).

After this incident, she continued to encourage Nankatsu middle school, Nankatsu high school, and the All Japan Youth team, and is usually part of the supporters in the national selection team.
