Kansai League Round 1
Divisions 1 and 2 of the Kansai League commenced their 2006 schedules with a full programme of matches on Saturday, with Division 1 champions Banditonce Kobe getting off to a winning start as they seek to gain a place in the JFL at the end of the year. They saw off promoted Kyoto Shiko Club 2-0, while Sanyo Electric Sumoto beat AS Laranja Kyoto 3-2 in the battle of two likely mid-table sides. Elsewhere in Division 1, however, there were shocks aplenty as Ain Food went down 3-1 at home to Takada FC and last year's second place side, Kobe FC 1970, crashed 3-0 at home to new club FC Mi-o Biwako Kusatsu.

In the Division 2 highlight, league newcomers Riseisha FC lost to Hermano Osaka on their debuts by the odd goal in nine. Last season's strugglers Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Kobe picked up a useful 1-0 win at the students of Kohga School and Technonet Osaka beat Kihoku Football Group 2-0; but FC Kyoto BAMB 1993's two first-half goals were enough for them to record a win over Kobe FC Senior C.
