Kansai League Division 1
2006 champions Banditonce Kobe rounded off the 2007 season in style, confirming the fact that they retained the title with a 2-0 win on the final day of the campaign at FC Mi-o Biwako Kusatsu. FC Mi-o have provided Banditonce with their closest challenge but have finished off the year a disappointing seven points off the pace, although in all probability both teams will compete in the Regional League Championship Winners' Play-off for a place in the JFL.

FC Glaspo Kashiwara's relegation has been a certainty for some time and the Osaka side concluded what has been a very difficult year by losing 4-3 at home to the side who will join them in Division 2 in 2008, Kobe FC 1970. Sanyo Electric Sumoto avoided the drop with a 1-0 win over Ain Food, while mid-table local rivals FC Kyoto 1993 and AS Laranja Kyoto ended the season with a low-key goalless draw.
