In this season, two additional clubs joined from the third-tier Japan Football League, though the number of participating clubs stayed at twelve, as no teams were relegated from 2004 J1 League to replace the two promoted clubs. The clubs competed in the quadruple round-robin format for the top two promotion slots. The third placed-finisher participated in the Pro/Rele Series for the promotion. There was no relegation to the third-tier Japan Football League.

ClubsEdit

The following twelve clubs played in J.League Division 2 during the 2005 season. Thespa Kusatsu and Tokushima Vortis newly joined the J.League Division 2 from Japan Football League.

League formatEdit

Twelve clubs play in a quadruple round-robin format, a total of 44 games each. A club receives 3 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, and 0 points for a loss. The clubs are ranked by points, and tie breakers are, in the following order:

  • Goal differential
  • Goals scored
  • Head-to-head results

A draw would be conducted, if necessary. However, if two clubs are tied at the first place, both clubs will be declared as the champions. The top two clubs will be promoted to J1, while the 3rd placed club plays a two-legged Promotion/Relegation series.
