    J.LEAGUE/JNT FAQs (updated: Dec 2007)

    Why does Japanese clubs have weird names?
    Are you kidding me? They have the coolest names!! Jokes aside, you may find your answer in this thread.

    How many clubs/divisions are in J.LEAGUE?
    In 2008, there are two divisions in the league. J.LEAGUE Division 1 (J1) has 18 clubs, where as Division 2 (J2) has 15 clubs, two more than in the previous season.

    In 2007, the top two finishers in J2 promote and replace the bottom two J1 clubs. The third place J2 club plays two-legged playoffs against the 16th J1 club for a place in J1.

    Plans for J.LEAGUE expansion?
    J1 will stay with 18 clubs for a while. Current plans states that J2 (not J1) will expand to 18 clubs by 2010 and as many as 22 clubs in next ten years. However, these are just plans. If the league becomes financially unstable, plans could be ceased.

    Is there amature leagues under J.LEAGUE?
    Japan Football League or JFL (18 clubs)
    9 Regional Leagues (some with multi-divisions)
    47 Prefectual League (some with multi-divisions)
