J-League Division 2

Twenty-two clubs will play in double round-robin format, a total of 42 games each. A club receives 3 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, and 0 points for a loss. The clubs are ranked by points, and tie breakers are, in the following order:Goal difference, Goals scored, Head-to-head results, and Disciplinary points A draw would be conducted, if necessary. However, if two clubs are tied at the first place, both clubs will be declared as the champions. Two top clubs will be directly promoted to J1, and third promotion spot will be decided in the playoff series among clubs placed 4th to 6th. Note that in order to participate in the playoffs a club must possess J1 license; if one or more clubs fail to do so, they will not be allowed to playoffs and they will not be replaced by other clubs. The relegation to lower tier J3 League will depend on the number and final standings of promotion-eligible clubs that possess J2 license. Up to two clubs can be exchanged between two leagues, with direct promotion/relegation between 22nd J2 place and J3 champion and/or playoff series between J3 runner-up and 21st-placed J2 team. If one or both J3 promotion candidates fail to obtain J2 license, they will not be allowed to promote and J2 relegation spots will be cut accordingly.
