The remaining 14 teams started from the group stage, where they were divided into two groups of seven. The group winners and the runners-up of each group qualified for the quarter-final along with the four teams which qualified for the AFC Champions League.

The competition was won by Júbilo Iwata, who defeated Sanfrecce Hiroshima 5–3 after extra time. They qualified for the 2011 Suruga Bank Championship.
