Kota Kawase (川瀬浩太, Kawase Kota, born 8 November 1992 in Japan) is a Japanese professional footballer who plays as a defender for Hong Kong Premier League club Southern.



Accepting a contract with Wollongong Wolves in late 2015 for his performances with Wollongong United in the Illawarra Premier League,[1] Kawase decided to further his career in Australia due to the physicality of the footballers there as well as its level, setting a league title as his target with United.[2] However, the Wolves were relegated at the end of the 2016 season and the Japanese defender had to leave despite participating in most of their fixtures, claiming to have become more erudite as a footballer.[3]


Bolstering Ceres for the 2017 Philippines Football League and AFC Cup,[4] the Takushoku University alumni started for the Busmen in their historic two-legged 3-2 win over Home United at the 2017 AFC Cup to become ASEAN Zone champions.[5]


Was announced as one of UiTM's imports for the 2018 Malaysia Premier League with Lucas Pugh and Dechi Marcel N'Guessan.[6]

Hong Kong[edit]

Kota joined Hong Kong Premier League club Dreams FC on 21 January 2019.[7]

On 26 June 2019, Kawase moved to fellow Hong Kong club Southern.[8]
