On the 2th, the final match was held, and Jubilo played an away match against Tochigi SC. In the first half, they conceded the first goal, but after a goal by Dudu equalized, they came back in the second half with a goal from Masaya Matsumoto to win 2-2.

On the other hand, S-Pulse played against Mito Hollyhock and drew 3-4, while Verdy defeated Omiya Ardija 3-1.
