J. League Division 1

Sanfrecce Hiroshima won another J. League title, raising its total league titles to seven. Yokohama F. Marinos led the campaign in the latter half of the seasons, only to lose the last two matches to Albirex Niigata and Kawasaki Frontale respectively, thus settling for second place. Frontale won third place as a result of their victory, qualifying for the AFC Champions League for the first time since 2009.

Oita Trinita, who had been promoted via the playoffs as sixth place, showed their poor preparation throughout the campaign and ended in bottom place. Júbilo Iwata was relegated as well after 20 seasons in Division 1, while Shonan Bellmare, who had been promoted with them in 1994 and was making a cameo appearance, went down with them as well.

J. League Division 2

Kansai rivals Gamba Osaka and Vissel Kobe, having been both relegated from Division 1 in the previous season, contested a fierce battle for the second tier title, and Gamba was ultimately victorious. The playoffs were won by Tokushima Vortis, which overcame Kyoto Sanga at Kokuritsu to become the first Shikoku football club to compete in the top Japanese division.

FC Gifu was in bottom place for most of the season before a short burst of rejuvenation in the final weeks allowed them to climb above Gainare Tottori, who was left to face the playout against Kamatamare Sanuki, in what turned out to be their last season in the second tier.

  2. ^ Promotion/Relegation Play-offs between J2 and JFL will take place between Kamatamare Sanuki, 2nd-placed club of 2013 Japan Football League with J. League Associate Membership, and 22nd-ranked club of 2013 J2

Japan Football League

In spite of leading the table for most of the season, Kamatamare Sanuki slipped and was overtaken by Nagano Parceiro to the title. However, because Nagano did not fulfill the J2 stadium requirements, Sanuki was allowed to playoff against Tottori and won.

This was the last season of the JFL as the third tier of Japanese football, as a new J. League Division 3 will take its place. No club was relegated to the Regional Leagues.
