S-Pulse Fixtures for 2010

Oh, yes! The 2010 J. League fixtures were released today, so here they are for your viewing pleasure. With over a month still to go before the big kick off, there's plenty of time to get planning your away days. Topping my list of must-hit stadiums are both C and G Osaka, Yamagata, Sendai and Niigata. Thankfully those games are all spread out over the year, so I might just be able to do it if can I save enough pennies.

Right after the World Cup break comes the biggest game of the season, the home derby, which is set for a balmy summer night on July 17th, kick off 6.30pm. August 22nd, the one year anniversary of the biggest Shizuoka Derby victory in history, will give us an chance to repeat the feat when we head off to Ecopa for the return match with Iwata. We end the season at home to Emperor's Cup winners Gamba Osaka. Don't know about you, but I can't wait to get back into the football groove!

Kick off times are only confirmed up to match 21, and all home games are at Nihondaira unless otherwise stated. So without further ado:

Hi Barry, excellent blog for peope getting in to J League / S Pulse. Will be keeping an eye on S Pulse this year and hopefully catch a game in 2011 when we are over in Japan. Have you ever thought about starting up an English forum for S Pulse or is there one already in existence. Check out my blog and feel free to comment on anything as I have started planning a trip to Japan among other things. Cheers

Hi G4Z,

Thanks for the post. I'm happy to hear the blog is inspiring S-Pulse fans around the world! :)

There are a couple of general English language message boards for the J. League:

( http://www.bigsoccer.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=1441 )

I've not set up an S-Pulse one, but it might be worth a go to see if it's popular or not.

Nice blog, btw! Good luck with your planning, and it you have any questions Shizuoka / Football / S-Pulse related feel free to ask here! A trip to Japan wouldn't be complete with a visit to Nihondaira. :)

Hi Barry,

looks like we will be in Japan - April 2011. Please can you make sure S Pulse are playing at home on Saturday 23 April 2011 so we can make it over!!! ;)

I'll have a word with the J. League and see what I can do. ;)

There should definitely be a game that weekend, fingers crossed it's at home!
