Hokkaido Champions Super League
As part of their so-called 2015 Project in order to raise the standard of football on the island and to promote the idea of a Hokkaido team reaching the JFL, the Hokkaido FA have launched a new tournament for 2008. It's called the Hokkaido Champions Super League and brings in seven participating teams from a range of different sources, as follows:

1. the top two teams from the 2007 Hokkaido League, i.e. Norbritz Hokkaido and Sapporo Winds;
2. the top two teams from the 2007 Hokkaido Universities League, i.e. Sapporo University SC and Dohto University SC;
3. the top two teams from the 2007 Prince League for youth players, i.e. Consadole Sapporo U18 and Muroran Otani HS; and
4. a team from local J-Leaguers Consadole Sapporo

With a league format meaning that each team players each other team twice, the fixture list runs from April through to the end of November, with a couple of dates to be confirmed. There will be occasional coverage of the tournament on JNFN, with particular attention given to the two Hokkaido League teams.

JFL News In Brief
JFL high-flyers Tochigi SC have further strengthened their squad with the signing of 23-year-old defender Chon Ryun Pot from Kanto League newcomers FC Korea... Katsunari Mizumoto, an 18-year-old defender, has joined Gainare Tottori from Luther Gakuen HS...
JFL / Regional League Promotion & Relegation 2008
The JFL have confirmed the system of promotion and relegation between itself and the nine Regional Leagues that will be used for 2008, as follows:

1. If no teams are promoted from the JFL to the J-League, the 17th and 18th teams in the JFL will be relegated to the appropriate Regional League. The top two teams in the Regional League Championship Winners Play-offs will be promoted to the JFL. There will also be an additional play-off between the third team in the Regional League Play-offs and the 16th team in the JFL.

2. If one team is promoted from the JFL to the J-League, the 18th team in the JFL will be relegated to the appropriate Regional League. The top two teams in the Regional League Championship Winners Play-offs will be promoted to the JFL. There will also be an additional play-off between the third team in the Regional League Play-offs and the 17th team in the JFL.

3. If two teams are promoted from the JFL to the J-League, the top two teams in the Regional League Championship Winners Play-offs will be promoted to the JFL. There will also be an additional play-off between the third team in the Regional League Play-offs and the 18th team in the JFL.

It's not yet clear whether the J-League will once again consider a top-four finish in the JFL to be good enough for associate member clubs to gain promotion to J2 - as was the case at the end of 2007 with FC Gifu and Roasso Kumamoto - although the maintaining of this system would seem to be likely this time around.
Shikoku League
Nangoku Kochi's decline as a force in Shikoku League football was underlined on Sunday as their 2008 season commenced with a disappointing 2-1 defeat at Ehime Shimanami... the title looks set to be contested by reigning champions Tokushima Vortis 2nd - 3-0 winners over promoted Showa Club - and Kamatamare Sanuki, who in an astonishing match attended by 1300 fans came back from 3-2 down to hammer Tokushima Comprille SC 10-3...

The new Kyushu League season got off to an explosive start in the traditional doubel-header weekend of fixtures in Miyazaki.
