The J-League Cup is one of the three major national soccer titles alongside the league and the Emperor's Cup. The final will be held at the Saitama Stadium on the 26th, and J1 ’s Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo and Kawasaki Frontale will both face each other.
On the 25th, in heavy rain, both teams practiced the day before on the turf ground adjacent to the stadium and adjusted with a light ball.
At the press conference, directors of both teams, Consadole defender, Yuto Fukumori, and Fengmori's forward captain Kaoru Kobayashi attended.
Consadole's director Petrovic said, “Frontale is the strongest team in Japan, and it's very good at defensive, has a dangerous attack, but we have come to the end by winning the strong team. I'm ready to do my best, and I'll definitely bring back a cup for those who play as usual and support from Hokkaido. "
In addition, Fukumori said, “I am thrilled to be able to fight the final against the team that started my professional career. If I don't win, there is no point here, so I want to win and raise a trophy.”

The tournament hasn't had a title yet because it has won two consecutive league matches. I think that the strength to win a single game is important for the growth of tomorrow. Tomorrow will be an all-out battle.
Kobayashi said, “We lost in the final two years ago and have regrets. The team has grown from that, and we are heading for the game with a relaxed personal feeling. "
