Kawasaki Frontale is a Japanese professional football club based in Kawasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture, south of Tokyo. The club plays in the J1 League, which is the top tier of football in the country. Their home stadium is Kawasaki Todoroki Stadium, in Nakahara Ward, in the central area of Kawasaki. The club was founded in 1955 as Fujitsu Soccer Club and became professional in 1997, changing its name – “Frontale” means “frontal” in Italian. In 2006, they achieved runner-up position in J1, their highest league position up to that time. In 2007, this club attended the AFC Champions League, and made important success, as the first Japanese club for qualifying its group stage. But Kawasaki lost in the quarter finals, against Iranian Sepahan, in a penalty shoot-out after two scoreless games. At long last, after two other second-place finishes in 2008 and 2009, Kawasaki Frontale finally won the title in 2017. Suddenly, Kawasaki started to create history on the J.League. No J1 team ever had won four titles on a five-year span. On 2020, they successfully won the J1 League with 83 points, staying 17 points clear off Gamba Osaka, the runners-up. They won the title with four games to spare, which was a record under the 34-match league format. On 2021, Kawasaki Frontale continue to assert their dominance and display great performances throughout the season. They won their first title of the year in their very opening match of the season, after beating Gamba Osaka by 3–2 on the 2021 Japanese Super Cup.
