In the latter half of the 1980s, professional and amateur players were mixed, and despite the fact that the Football Association allowed professional players, the league continued to be distorted, with amateur matches and the Japanese national team also matching amateur standards..

Most of the business teams play soccerEmployee WelfareMany people felt a repulsion to the word "professional""..

The word "examination" was added to get the conservative approval of the Japan Football Association, but in fact, among the parties concerned, the establishment of the professional league was already fixed as a default policy...
