Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Japan Football Association, sometimes known as the Japan Soccer Association, is the governing body responsible for the administration of association football (soccer) in Japan. It is responsible for the national team as well as club competitions.The organisation was founded in 1921 as the Greater Japan Football Association, and became affiliated with FIFA in 1929. In 1945, the name of the organisation was changed to the Japan Football Association its Japanese name was changed to the current title in 1975. This reflected common use of the word sakk, derived from "soccer," rather than the older Japanese word sh ky . The word sakk gained popularity during the post-World War II occupation of Japan by the Allied powers. The association generally translates its name to "Japan Football Association" in English, though "Japan Soccer Association" is also used.
