About Vegalta Sendai

is a Japanese professional football (soccer) club, currently playing in J. League Division 1. The team is located in Sendai, Miyagi, Miyagi Prefecture. Their home stadium is Sendai Stadium, in Izumi-ku, Sendai, although a few home games have also been played at nearby Miyagi Stadium.

History

Founded in 1988 as Tohoku Electric Power Co., Inc. Soccer Club, Vegalta joined the J-League in 1999 after playing a few years in the Japan Football League (former), with the nickname Brummell Sendai, to which they had been promoted in 1995 from the Tohoku Regional League. When joining the J-League, the name Vegalta was chosen as a homage to the famous Tanabata festival in Sendai. The names of the two celestial stars of the Tanabata legend, Vega and Altair were Portmanteau to form Vegalta.

They were first promoted to the top flight in 2002, but went back down the following season. They were promoted again for the 2010 season.

In 2011, despite the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, they achieved their highest position to date, 4th place in the top division.

The club's theme, sung before every game, is Take Me Home, Country Roads, while during the game altered lyrics are sung to the tunes of The Lambrusco Kid by the Toy Dolls, Blitzkrieg Bop, and other songs by Kiss (band) and Twisted Sister.
