Albirex Niigata   Leave a comment

Based out of snowy Niigata on the West coast of Japan they are surprisingly one of the best supported clubs in Japan setting average attendance figures of over 40000 at their peak. They even managed to have the highest average attendance in all of Japan while still in J2.
This support is probably more due to the absence of much else to do in Niigata rather than having ever won anything.

Got their name by combining the name of the star Albireo and the latin word for king (rex).
