Nagoya Grampus (名古屋グランパス?, Nagoya Guranpasu) (formerly known as Nagoya Grampus Eight (名古屋グランパスエイト?, Nagoya Guranpasu Eito)) is a Japanese association football club that plays in the J2 League, following relegation from the J1 League in 2016. Based in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture and founded as the company team of the Toyota Motor Corp. in 1939, the club shares its home games between Mizuho Athletic Stadium (capacity 27,000 and the J. League's oldest-serving stadium) and the much larger Toyota Stadium (capacity 45,000).

The team had its most successful season up to 1995 when it was managed by current Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger. It won the Emperor's Cup and finished second in the J. League, with Dragan Stojković and Gary Lineker on the team. The 1995 success was eclipsed on November 20, 2010, when the club won its first J. League trophy, under the management of Stojković.[1]

The team's name was derived from the two most prominent symbols of Nagoya: the two golden grampus dolphins on the top of Nagoya Castle, and the Maru-Hachi (Circle eight), the city's official symbol.

History[edit]

JSL era[edit]

Toyota Motor S.C. was overshadowed by its colleague Toyota Automated Loom Works FC (founded in 1946 and which was one of the founding members of the Japan Soccer League). When Toyota ALW were relegated to regional leagues in 1968, Toyota Motor saw an opportunity to rise at their expense.[2]

In 1972 Toyota Motors were founding members of the JSL's Second Division and its inaugural champions. They remained in the JSL until the J. League's founding in 1993. They were relegated to the JSL Division 2 in 1977. After a brief return in 1987–88, they were promoted for good in 1989–90 and remained in the top flight for 26 years, until 2016.

J. League era[edit]

In 1996, future Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger, led Grampus to the 1996 Emperor's Cup and a runners-up finish in the J.League, the club's best finish. The team's name "Nagoya Grampus Eight" was changed to just "Nagoya Grampus" at the start of the 2008 season.[2] In 2008, Nagoya appointed former player Dragan Stojković as manager. They finished in third place and qualified for the AFC Champions League for the first time.[3] Stojković has since led the club to winning the J. League in the 2010 season, featuring a squad consisting of Marcus Tulio Tanaka, Mu Kanazaki, Seigo Narazaki, Yoshizumi Ogawa, Keiji Tamada and Joshua Kennedy.[1] After a poor 2016 season, Nagoya Grampus were relegated to J2 League for the first time in their history.[4] Boško Gjurovski left his post as manager.[5] On 4 January 2017, Yahiro Kazama was appointed as the clubs new manager.[6]

Kashima Soccer Stadium curse[edit]

Since Nagoya were dealt a 5–0 defeat to the Kashima Antlers at the Kashima Soccer Stadium on 16 May in the 1993 J. League season opener, Nagoya suffered a losing streak of 22 consecutive games to the Kashima Antlers at the Kashima Soccer Stadium which included Emperor's Cup and J. League Cup games. Nagoya finally got their first victory over the Kashima Antlers at the Kashima Soccer Stadium on 23 August of the 2008 J. League season, some 15 years later.
