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.
