Montedio Yamagata are a professional soccer club in the J. League. They consider Yamagata prefecture as their home region, centering around cities like Yamagata, Tendo and Tsuruoka. Presently they are in the J2 league. Their home stadium is the ND Soft Stadium Yamagata, which is located in Tendo.
The club was founded in 1984, under the name NEC Yamagata Soccer Club, by like-minded people. Between 1990 to 1993, they won the Tohoku Soccer League 4 times in a row.
After being promoted to the Japan Football League (JFL) in 1994, they changed their club name to the present Montedio Yamagata in 1996. From 1999, Montedio started in the J2 league. On their first year, they finished 7th among 10 teams, but in the Emperor’s Cup, they beat J1 league teams Vissel Kobe and Cerezo Osaka one after another. For the first time in history, they made it to the quarterfinals.
In 2001, on their 3rd season in J2, former Japan National Team player Koichi Hashiratani became the club’s manager and pushed the team up to second place during the league matches, which was within the promotion range. However, on their final match they lost against Kawasaki Frontale and finished in 3rd place, regrettably letting the chance to promote to J1 slip away.
After that, they weren’t able to contend for a promotion and wandered around the middle of the league with mediocre results until the 2008 season, when under the management of Shinji Kobayashi and with the help of young players like Yohei Toyoda, who was selected to represent Japan National team in the Beijing Olympics, the team reached 2nd place and attained their long awaited promotion to J1 league.
The first two seasons in the new league, they managed to stay in J1 with finishing in the lower end. The other teams were miles ahead in skill and strength. On their third season in 2011, they dropped to last place and were demoted to J2.
On the 2014 season, they managed to maintain their 6th place position throughout the year and took part in the J1 promotion playoffs, where they faced the 4th place Jubilo Iwata in the semifinals and the 3rd place holders JEF United Chiba in the finals. In the end Montedio came out victorious. The 6th place finisher Montedio caused a huge upset by once again earning a ticket to J1.
Furthermore, that year in the Emperor’s Cup they were the first club from the Tohoku region to reach the final in 81 years. They lost against Gamba Osaka in the end, but still they could add a runner-up victory to their belt.
Sadly, in the 2015 J1 season, they again failed to produce results and relegated within one year. Right now they are again fighting in the J2 league as a yo-yo club.
Their home jerseys is blue color and their supplier up to 2014 was PUMA. From 2015 it has been New Balance. The club’s shirts and shorts have logos of their local sponsors like Tsuyahime, DENROKU and Hirata farm (Hirataboku).
