The Japanese Super Cup or Fuji Xerox Super Cup(富士ゼロックススーパーカップ,Fuji zerokkusu sūpā kappu?) is an annual one-match football (soccer) competition in Japan organised by J. League and the Japan Football Association (JFA). This competition serves as the season opener and is played between the J. League Champions and the Emperor's Cup Winners of the previous season. Fuji Xerox have sponsored the competition since its inception in 1994. The match usually played around late February each year.
† Since the Emperor's Cup winners, Yokohama Flügels !Yokohama Flügels, had been disbanded, the runners-up, Shimizu S-Pulse !Shimizu S-Pulse, qualified for the competition. ‡ The same club had won both the J. League and the Emperor's Cup in the previous year; therefore, the runners-up of the Cup qualified for the competition.
The Japanese Super Cup was also played during the Japan Soccer League (JSL) era from 1977 to 1984. However, it was never established as an independent competition as the second competition in 1978 was already served as a mere opening league match of the JSL. This previous Super Cup competition was taken less seriously than the current competition and made dormant after 8 years. All matches were held in the National Stadium in Tokyo except for the 1978 and 1980 matches, both held in Osaka.
