Emperor's Cup
The JFA have confirmed the draw for the opening three rounds of the Emperor's Cup proper for 2007. As usual, each prefecture will be represented by just one team from below the ranks of the J-League itself, with the preliminary tournaments to decide on who those teams will be taking place across Japan at the moment. So the draw as it stands involves nothing more than deciding which prefectures' teams will play against each other, prior to the J2 sides becoming involved at the Third Round stage. JNFN will aim to fill in the gaps as regards the identities of all the prefectural representatives, but the basics of the draw are as follows:
