Kashiwa Reysol History

Hitachi SC (1939–1992)

The club initially began in 1939, but it wasn’t until 1940 at Kodaira, Tokyo, that it was formally established as the company team, Hitachi, Ltd. Soccer Club. In 1965, this team was one of the founding members of the Japan Soccer League (JSL), which also included the club that is now known as the Urawa Reds, as well as JEF United Chiba, Cerezo Osaka, Sanfrecce Hiroshima, and three other clubs (“Original Eight”).

During the middle of the 1970s, they enjoyed some success, as seen by their collection of Emperor’s Cups and JSL championships, as well as the players they contributed to the Japanese national team. The team moved from Kodaira to Kashiwa in 1986, but it took them some time to adjust to the new location, and as a result, they were demoted to JSL Division 2 at the end of the season.

They were able to make it back to the top division in the 1989/90 season, but they fell out of it in the 1990/91 season and then returned in the 1991/92 season. The club decided against becoming a founding member of the newly founded professional league because the J.League’s debut was much too quickly for them to be prepared for it.

In 1992, the club moved up to the Division 1 of the Japan Football League (also known as the “old JFL”), which is the second level of competition in the Japanese football hierarchy after the J.League.

Kashiwa Reysol (1993–)

In 1993, the club became known as Kashiwa Reysol after the name change. In the fall of this year, Reysol brought in Careca, a member of the Brazil national football team, with the intention of winning the JFL champion and gaining promotion to the J1 League.

The team had a lot of trouble, but with Careca and its Brazilian manager Zé Sérgio’s assistance, they were able to secure the second place finish in the JFL in 1994 and earn promotion to the top league. 1995 was the year that Reysol made their debut in the J1 League. In 1998, they welcomed Akira Nishino, who had previously served as the manager of Japan’s Olympic team, Hristo Stoichkov, who had previously played for Bulgaria’s national football team, and Hong Myung-bo, who had previously played for Korea’s national football team.

In 1999, the team became known as Kashiwa Reysol, and that same year they won the J.League Cup. However, the team became restless under the direction of the next English manager, Steve Perryman, and the club suffered over the course of the subsequent several seasons. The club was demoted to the J2 League after failing to go past the promotion/relegation play-offs and ending in the 16th position out of 18 clubs in 2005.

They were defeated by Ventforet Kofu, who had finished in third place in the J2 League. The club earned automatic promotion to the J1 League in the final game of the season in 2006 under the direction of a new manager, Nobuhiro Ishizaki, who also oversaw the formation of an almost entirely new team. At the end of the 2009 season, the team was demoted for a second time. However, once they won the J2 League led by Nelsinho Baptista in 2010 and came back to the top flight, the club won the J1 League in 2011 with some talented footballers such as Hiroki Sakai, Junya Tanaka, Jorge Wagner, and Leandro Domingues, and became the first Japanese club to win the second tier and the top tier in consecutive seasons.

In doing so, they became the first Japanese club to win the top tier and the second tier in consecutive seasons. The team defeated Auckland City and Monterrey to earn a spot in the semifinals of the FIFA Club World Cup. The club qualified for the tournament by winning the league that was played in the host nation. During the years 2010–2014, Reysol was victorious in six different championships over the course of five straight seasons.

These victories included the J2 League in 2010, the J1 League in 2011, the Emperor’s Cup and the Super Cup in 2012, the J.League Cup in 2013, and the Suruga Bank Championship in 2014. In 2014, Reysol won the Suruga Bank Championship.
