    Drastic decision taken by Ryo Oliver Iwamoto. He decided to retire at the age of 21. I think he wasn't so bad last season for Gainare. If I remember well scored a really nice goal for Gainare in J3. He was on loan from Jubilo Iwata.

    So what's the situation here, license-wise for the top teams?
    Last I remember Ryūkyū was going to be promoted.
    What about Kagoshima? And is Thespa promoted in their place, in case they don't have a license?

    Both Ryukyu and Kagoshima have a J2 license.

    If a team with no license finish in a promotion-spot the team below then in the league standings will not be promoted. In this case one team from the upper league will either avoid relegation or play a play-off.

    Well, pretty much the same situation as with Machida and J1/J2 promotion system.

    Thanks, looks like J2 next year will have some "fresh" new teams then.

    Little add, JFL-related: Vanraure Hachinohe will 99% go up to J3. They locked a Top 4-spot and now they just need their license.

    ... and if Sagan Tosu get relegated along with V-Varen Nagasaki, and both Oita and Fukuoka failed to gain promotion we will have to rename J2 to "All-Kyushu and Southern Japan league".

    Actually, administratively Okinawa (Ryuku) is part of Kyushu region.

    Sagan, Nagasaki, Oita, Fukuoka, Ryukyu, and either Kumamoto or Kagoshima (one of them will be in J2 on the expense of the other) all have the possibility to play in J2 next season, they are just missing the poor Kitakyushu:cry:.

    Meaning Honda FC will erase the competition with 5-6 games to play?

    (just kiddin', but I'm fearing this might be 2019 season in a nutshell)

    Meanwhile, Thespa and Roasso look on the run to go back to J2. Fujieda and Giravanz the clear rivals for the Top 2 spots.

    (I'd rename this thread "J3 + JFL Thread", in order to have constant news about these leagues. Just a suggestion)

    Done. Sine it moves very slowly, it doesn't make sense to open it every year
