This team is famous throughout Asia and has legions of fans. Only founded in 1980, the team won the league title twice and burnished the reputation of Japanese football by coming third at the FIFA Club World Cup in 2008.
As the most successful club in Japanese soccer, the Antlers won the title a record eight times. Add to that a record six J1 League Cup wins and five Emperor’s Cup wins for a remarkable record. The Antlers play in Kashima, a town around 80 kilometers east of Tokyo.
Formerly the Osaka Tigers, this team is one of the oldest baseball clubs in Japan. It has many fans despite a supposed curse that has afflicted the team since its last Japan Series win in 1985.
