J League Teams: Kawasaki Frontale (632 words)
Kawasaki Frontale bears a rather dubious distinction; the team was the first J2 club ever promoted to J1, but also was the first former J2 club ever to be relegated back to the J2.
Frontale finished second in the old JFL in 1998, and first in the J2 in 1999, thereby winning promotion to the J1.
Kawasaki were in the race for promotion until the final week of the season, when despite a victory over Sanfrecce Hiroshima in the penultimate match, they finished in third place on goal difference.
