About Sagan Tosu
is a Japanese professional football (soccer) club, currently playing in the J. League Division 2. The team is located in Tosu, Saga, Saga Prefecture.
Sagan is a coined word with a couple of meanings behind it. One of its homophones is in Japanese. This symbolises many small elements uniting to form one formidable object. Also, Sagan Tosu
can be interpreted as in the area's dialect. In addition, it is widely believed that the word is meant to be a pun with Italian giants Juventus although the club hasn't confirmed it.
In February 1997, Sagan was established as a new club which virtually takes over Tosu Futures, which became insolvent in the previous month, and admitted to participate Japan Football League (former) from 1997 to 1998, as well as J. League Cup in 1997 as a preferential measure, although J. League Associate Membership status is not awarded to Sagan. In 1999 they were admitted to the new J. League Division 2 (J2), where they remained until their promotion to J1 at the end of the 2011 season.
