The 2022 Emperor's Cup (Emperor's Cup JFA 102nd Japan Football Championship (Japanese: 天皇杯 JFA 第102回全日本サッカー選手権大会)) was the 102nd edition of the annually contested cup, taking place from 21 May to 16 October.[1] The final was played at the Nissan Stadium, in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture.

The 2022 Emperor's Cup followed a different pattern to the previous three editions of the tournament, being restored to its old, usual format, which was applied for the last time in the 2018 Emperor's Cup. It features 88 teams, representing the prefectural football associations, the J1 League, and the J2 League. Honda FC was awarded a seeded entry as the JFA's annually specially-designated amateur club, in order to turn the quantity of teams in the First Round to an even number.[2]

Urawa Red Diamonds were the defending champions. They were eliminated by Thespakusatsu Gunma in the third round. Ventforet Kofu won their first major title and qualified for the 2023–24 AFC Champions League group stage.

CalendarEdit

The schedule was announced on 21 December 2021.[3] The first round of the tournament was played on Saturdays and Mondays. From the second round to the semi-finals, the matches were played on Wednesdays, and the final on a Sunday. The final was moved to mid-October due to the 2022 FIFA World Cup, in which the Japan national team is participating, being held in November and December, making it difficult for the 2022 Emperor's Cup Final to be held on the first day of the following year, as per the usual practice.

Note

  1. ^
    The Prefectural Cup Final of Ehime, Oita, and Kagawa were cancelled, due to some players of one or both teams in their respective prefectural finals testing positive for the COVID-19 disease. As a result: FC Imabari won the Ehime Prefectural spot; Verspah Oita won the Oita Prefectural spot as J-Lease FC (their opponent) declined their participation in the final; And Takamatsu University won the Kagawa Prefectural spot as Kamatamare Sanuki withdrew from the final after the disease's outbreak in the squad.[4][5]

Qualifying roundsEdit

As only J1 and J2 League clubs qualify directly for the First Round, the other Emperor's Cup candidate teams (exception being made to the JFA-seeded teams), have to undergo a prefectural qualification, with regulaments and schedules varying from one association to another. In total, there are 47 prefectural cup qualifications, with the winners of each prefectural cup earning their right to play in the First Round of the Emperor's Cup. This year, a total of 2,342 teams played in the aforementioned prefectural qualifications. The following boxes shows each result of the 47 prefectural finals of the 2022 Emperor's Cup Prefectural Qualification Cup.[6][7][8]
