The J League is the short for Japan Professional Football League.
In 1993, there were only 10 teams participate in the first J League, and finally Verdy Kawasaki won the season champion.
When the first J League opened, besides some Japanese players like Kazuyoshi Miura, Ramos Ruy, Nobuhiro Takeda, but also some world-class soccer stars joined in the J League such as Zico, Pierre Littbarski and so on, therefore, the atmosphere of the first J League was very heightened.
25 years have passed after the first J League opened, although the 2018 season is less enthusiastic than that season, yet there are 54 football clubs join in the today's J League, among them, there are 18 teams in the J1 League, 22 in the J2 League, and 14 in the J3 League, and the League has better cooperation with some Asian countries such as Thailand and Vietnam, aiming to improve the overall technical level of the League.
The "100 Year Plan of J League" is not only focused on the popularity of the moment, but aimed to have the soccer culture rooted in Japan, that is, let all people regardless of age and sex can have fun in it, and this plan is just under way. On a global scale, Japan's football history is still short and its level is not very high, but how the J League to expand and develop in the future is worth to look forward to.
