Japan: The 2006 J-League, with attendance figures.

Filed under: Japan — admin @ 2:10 pm


I like the J-League because it has sprung up out of nowhere, and has such maniacal fans.  The fans make the games a colorful spectacle  Also, the caliber of play is better than one might expect, and you are likely to see some pretty nice goals here.  The Urawa Reds are poised to become Japan’s first “big” club.  They draw the biggest crowds (45,500 average), and finally won the league title last season.  Albirex Niigata draw extremely well (38,700), in spite of being a mediocre club.  FC Tokyo, Yokohama F. Marinos, and Oita Trinita average in the 20,000 to 24,000 range.  There are 10 clubs with respectable gates of between 13,000 and 18,000.  The J-League averaged 18,292 per game in 2006.
