Division 2 Club Roasso Kumamoto Could Lose License Over Debt, Liabilities
Published May 2, 2014
FUND-RAISING EFFORT: Kumamoto collected 1.8M yen ($18,000) from supporters at its home game against Nagasaki on April 26. The club plans to keep asking for donations at matches at the 32,000-seat Kumamoto Athletics Stadium, where it averages gates of around 6,000. J.League spokesperson Rimia Ono said that seven J2 clubs were issued warnings last season about their club licenses, with finance and stadium facilities being the main problems. Ono said, "Regarding finances, the rules are that if a club operates in the red, and has debt for three consecutive years, its license can be taken away." The announcement on licenses is expected in September.
