Current season

Fujieda MYFC (藤枝MYFC, Fujieda Maiefushī) are a Japanese J3 League football club based in Fujieda, Shizuoka. It is funded by online subscribers and is the first of its kind in Japan.

The club spent two seasons in the Japan Football League before having their application accepted in 2013 to participate in the inaugural season of J3 League in 2014.[1]


The current club was formed in 2010 as a merger of two clubs, Fujieda Nelson (after Daishiro Yoshimura's Brazilian middle name) and Shizuoka FC. The My Football Club project bought Fujieda Nelson CF in 2008 and renamed them Fujieda MYFC.[2] Then in 2010, My Football Club bought Shizuoka FC and merged the two clubs to form Shizuoka Fujieda MYFC and appointed Toshihide Saito as player/manager of the club.

In their first season the club finished 1st in the Tokai League Division 1 but was knocked out of the Regional League promotion series.

On 2011, they took second place in the Regional League promotion series and therefore won promotion to the Japan Football League[3] for the first time, becoming the third representative of the prefecture in the national leagues. They then dropped the Shizuoka from their name and become just Fujieda MYFC.[2]

In 2012, the club finished their first season in the Japan Football League in 11th place and therefore secured their place in the division for the following 2013 season.

After finishing 13th in the Japan Football League in 2013, the club were accepted in the inaugural J. League Division 3 which is to be competed in 2014.[1] Following the club's acceptance, player/manager Toshihide Saito decided to leave the club.[4]

On 7 January 2014, Musashi Mizushima was appointed as manager, following Saito's resignation.[5][6]


Fujieda play their home games at the Fujieda Sports Complex Park which has a capacity of 13,000 and was opened in 2002.[7]
