Tohoku League Division 2 (North)
After some confusion over results published elsewhere in Division 2 (North) of the Tohoku League, it can finally be confirmed that FC Akita Cambiare have retained their title and will go forward to take on Viancone Fukushima in a play-off for the one automatic promotion place. But Cambiare's triumph was made certain only after a final round victory over runners-up Mizusawa Club, who put together a strong series of results in the second half of the season to emerge from the pack as the likeliest challengers to the supremacy of the reigning champions.

Tono Club, on the other hand, faded from the scene to finish in third, after disappointing results against the likes of Vanraure Hachinohe and Omiya Club. And it is the latter side that seem likely to face a play-off to stay in the division, after having been promoted from the Prefectural Leagues themselves only a year ago. With one re-arranged fixture against Fuji Club 2003 still to be played, Hokuto Bank are guaranteed to finish last and would appear to be heading for automatic relegation at the end of their eighth season in the Tohoku League.
