Home and away

Home and awayIs mainlyサ ッ カ ーIn sports such as, two teams eachhome townIt is a method of playing against each other twice in total. In a broad senseRound robinTournament.


The team that is based in the stadium to play against, or the team that hosts the match even if it is a completely unrelated stadium.Home teamFrom the standpoint of the organizer, the game is called a home game. On the other hand, the opponent team that plays against the home teamAway team, In Nippon Professional BaseballvisitorSay (visitor)[1], A game played from the standpoint of an away team is called an away game or a road game. Home and away is a battle system in which a home game and an away game are played one game at a time for a combination of two specific teams to play against each other.

J League etc.サ ッ カ ーThis is usually the method used in league games. In Japanese baseball, the expression "home (franchise) and visitor" is the official name, but recently, due to the influence of soccer, the term "away" is increasing in baseball.[Source required] .. In addition, the United StatesMajor LeagueIn, the expression "Away" is mainly used on official websites, news sites, TV broadcasts, etc., and the expression "Visitor" is rare.[2]. Also,Korean professional baseball,Taiwan professional baseballEven in English and local languages, the expression "away" is used, and if anything, the "visitor" notation is unique to Nippon Professional Baseball.

In this method, there are often two types of player uniforms, one for home use and the other for away (visitor). In baseball, the chest of home uniforms tends to contain the nickname of the team, and visitor uniforms tend to contain the company name of the team's parent company or the local name of the baseball team rather than the team's nickname.Japan Baseball OrganizationFor the uniforms of each team, see the section for each team).

In soccer, rugby, and basketball, uniforms are basically prepared in two patterns of colors, but this is mainly a measure against color fog. Therefore, even in away games, if the uniform (first uniform) used mainly at home does not match the color of the opponent's first uniform, wear the first uniform, or conversely, the first uniform is the opponent's first uniform or mainly away. The uniform used in (second uniform) If it is covered with both colors, the second uniform may be used at home as well.

The team based on the opposing stadium is treated as an away team because the stadium on which both teams are competing is based, or the stadium on which one team is based does not meet the regulations of the organizer. There is also a case of doing. In addition, home games may be held in neighboring areas due to reasons such as stadium renovation and political instability in home towns.

利 点

Hometown games are considered to be advantageous because the home team is more accustomed to the facilities and other environments and is less tired from moving. In addition, it is possible to receive the support of a relatively large number of local fans, and the resulting impact on judgment (Hometown Decision) Etc. are also considered to be factors that work in favor of the home team. This is especially true in international games. The home-and-away method is expected to equalize the advantages and disadvantages of such venues.

There are also reasons for the box office in professional sports, such as an increase in box office revenue due to the increase in the number of games through league games, and equalization of spectator mobilization by holding games in each hometown.


There is still the possibility of advantages and disadvantages depending on the order and timing of home games, and it is virtually impossible to equalize them. Especially when it is necessary to decide the victory or defeat by two games of home and away (example:Knockout tournament), Only the second game may be overtime, and the team that will play the home game later will have an advantage.[3].. Also, of professional baseballplay off,Japan series,NBA FinalThere is also a problem that the number of games must be odd when the victory or defeat is decided by the difference in the number of wins.

In addition, the support of hometown fans is sometimes excessive and can lead to security problems. In such cases, some sanctions may be imposed on the home team side of the match in which the problem occurred. In order to prevent problems, we may dare to play at stadiums that are unrelated to each other (mainly stadiums in other countries).

Compared to the case where the winner is decided in one game, the home-and-away method increases the distance traveled and the schedule, which is a financial and physical burden. Especially for amateurs such as students, the burden is heavy. At world-class competitions, the home-and-away method is rarely used due to travel travel issues.

If the brute force is an odd number, it may be difficult to balance the number of home games.

Japan Baseball OrganizationJurisdictionProfessional baseballThen,FranchiseThe system was introduced1952After that,1997-2000と2015,2016 TheSE League-Pacific LeagueIn both leagues2004Was only in the Pacific League, and the number of round robin was odd (2015 in 2016/25, 27 in other cases), so except for the 2004 Pacific League, each match card has a year. Made it possible to hold one more home game each time (the number of H & As will be equal in two years).Also after 1Sep-pa Exchange BattleAlso, since they will be brute force with each other's league teams three times, the home and visitors will be replaced every year (also H & A will be completed in two years).

In addition,J LeagueEven inJ2 The2008から2010Until,J3Then.2014と2015,JFLAlso1999Only brute force was adopted three times each, and one of the teams held two home games.
