Founded in 1921, the Japanese football association is one of the most active members of our global football family. After joining FIFA in 1929, the new member achieved its first tournament victory twelve months later in the Far Eastern Games - a triumph that was to be repeated at various other events. The association has often excelled in the role of host. An exhaustive list of all of the tournaments would be impossible; suffice it to say that it has hosted all of the types of football recognised by FIFA. TheJapan Football Association played an exemplary role in founding its own league (JSL) in 1965 that is still thriving today in a variety of forms. The Japanese association supervises 47 regional associations and coordinates their demands and needs. Having organised various FIFA competitions at world level, starting with the U-20 FIFA World Cup in 1979, reaching a climax with the 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan, and including the FIFA Club World Cup that has been regularly held in Japan since 2005, the Japan Football Association is the most active FIFA member in this respect.
On 2 June 2009, the Goal Bureau approved the second project proposed by the Japan Football Association, whose objective is to acquire state-of-the-art equipment for the medical centre constructed under the first project.

AFC World Cup Qualifiers
The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) is the governing body of association football in Asia. It has 46 member countries, mostly located on the Asian continent. Due to the disputed boundary of Europe and Asia, transcontinental nations such as Turkey and Russia are instead in the UEFA, whereas countries such as Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia and Israel are entirely in Asia (Central or Western Asia) and still members of the UEFA. On the other hand, Australia, formerly in the OFC, has been in the AFC since 2006, in the same way as the Oceanian nations of Guam and Northern Mariana Islands, which are also members of AFC.
