J.League establishes working committees

The J.League’s board of directors on Tuesday approved the creation of several working groups which will serve as advisory bodies to the league’s executive committee.

A technical committee overseen by vice chairman Hiromi Hara will examine issues such as league formats, Under-23 competitions, season formats, and developments in officiating.

The business and marketing committee, headed by managing director Daisuke Nakanishi, will study innovations in merchandising and sponsorships as well as the issue of overseas broadcast rights.

According to officials, the establishment of these committees will allow the league to evaluate rapidly-evolving topics in a timely and efficient manner.
