In the latter half of the 1980s, professional and amateur players were mixed, and despite the fact that the Football Association allowed professional players, the league continued to be distorted, with amateur matches and the Japanese national team also matching amateur standards.[18][36][37][38].

The word "examination" was added to get the conservative approval of the Japan Football Association, but in fact, among the parties concerned, the establishment of the professional league was already fixed as a default policy.[62].. It was when this "Pro League Review Committee" was set up that we could reach the stage where we could do a Pro League depending on how we did it.[43].. The Pro League concept is embodied[15][63], Announced on July 1991, 7, that the official name of the new professional league will be "Japan Professional Soccer League" and the nickname will be "J League".[52], Japan's first professional soccer leagueJapan Professional Soccer League(J League) was established[Annotation 10]..

In addition, the Japan national team, which was so weak, suddenly became stronger before the start of the J. League, supporting the popularity of the J. League.[9][12][80][81].. When the J League was founded, KawabuchiJ League ChairmanAs a representative of the Japan National Team, he was exposed to the mass media and was in the spotlight, so the image of the J League was made as if Kawabuchi made it.[15][20][82][83].. Although the formation of the professional league was made by accumulating many years of work of many people who want to flourish and strengthen Japanese soccer,[9][18][84]The last step is that Kawabuchi's vitality and brute force became a major driving force.

Kawabuchi said that when he first heard about the Pro League, he thought, "Isn't it stupid?"[91]Even when he was appointed as JSL general manager after Mori, Kinomoto said, "If you don't feel like becoming a professional, don't come."[92]Kinomoto said, "Before assuming the position of Mr. Kawabuchi, JSL general affairs manager, the path to professionalization was already established."[93]Mori said, "I made a baton-touch to Mr. Kawabuchi after establishing a professional path."[94]..
