Hokushinetsu League Division 2 / Prefectural Play-offs
Just twelve months after having been relegated from the Hokushinetsu League Division 1, Teihens FC have been demoted from Regional League football altogether, after they lost 3-2 on aggregate to Niigata University of Health & Welfare in the Division 2 / Prefectural Leagues Play-off. They will therefore compete in the Ishikawa Prefectural League next season, bringing to an end a tenure in the Hokushinetsu League of fully thirty years.

The students, meanwhile, had earned the right to take on Teihens after having finished runner-up in the recent Prefectural Leagues Play-off tournament. They will in turn play Regional League football in 2008 for the first time and are promoted alongside Nagano's Nissei Resin.

Sun 04 Nov: Niigata University of Health & Welfare 1-1 Teihens FC

Sun 11 Nov: Teihens FC 1-2 Niigata University of Health & Welfare
Hokushinetsu League Division 1 / Division 2 Play-off
In the second leg of their Play-off last weekend, ambitious Saurcos Fukui netted a crucial extra time to goal to defeat Niigata University of Management and replace them in next season's Division 1 of the Hokushinetsu League. Saurcos, who were previously known as FC Kanazu and who are aiming ultimately to become their home prefecture's J-League franchise, thereby gained a 4-3 aggregate win and will join one of the most competitive Regional League divisions in Japan.

Sun 11 Nov: Niigata University of Management 2-2 Saurcos Fukui (AET)
