Welcome to JSoccer!

At JSoccer.com and JSoccer Magazine we aim to give some much needed exposure to Japanese soccer. There is a lot to discover and celebrate within it. The structure of the J.League itself is again in a state of flux and its format will see it revert back to a two stage system for the 2015 season (more information on this here). However average attendance has increased over the decade and soccer has never been so popular in Japan.

With the emergence of players like Shinji Kagawa and Keisuke Honda, Japan have their first truly global soccer star since Hidetoshi Nakata. There are also plenty of other players currently plying their trade in Europe, particularly the Bundesliga, which for many demonstrates a steady improvement in the quality of Japanese players. The 2014 World Cup in Brazil will have been their fifth World Cup tournament in a row and, according to this online football betting site, are predicted to fare better than other talented teams like Croatia, Mexico and Ivory Coast.
