Consadole Sapporo ( Japanese コ ン サ ド ー レ 札幌 Konsadōre Sapporo ), officially Hokkaidō Consadole Sapporo ( 北海道 コ ン サ ド ー レ 札幌 Hokkaidō Konsadōre Sapporo ) is a Japanese football club from the city of Sapporo on Hokkaidō . He has played in the J1 League since the 2017 season .
The club was founded in 1935 as Toshiba Horikawa-chō Soccer-bu ( 東芝 堀 川 町 サ ッ カ ー 部 , Eng. "Toshiba Football Club Horikawa"), renamed in 1980 Toshiba Soccer-bu ( 東芝 サ ッ カ ー 部 , Eng. "Toshiba Football Club") and existed in this form until 1995. In 1978 they rose to the second division, two years later even in the first division. Toshiba SC originally played in Kawasaki , where Kawasaki Verdy (now Tokyo Verdy) was also playing at the time . The parent company Toshiba therefore considered moving to another city and decided on Sapporo .
In 1995, the club played its last season under the name Toshiba SC and was renamed Consadole Sapporo for the 1996 season - a suitcase word from backwards the syllables do-sa-n-ko as a proper name for Hokkaidō-born and the exclamation Olé . Under the new name, they made it to the first division in 1997. For the 1999 season play-offs were introduced between the last four teams in the first division and the champions from the second division. Consadole was affected by the fact that the results of the last two years decided who would participate in the play-offs. In these play-offs, you never left the pitch as a winner (4 defeats in 4 games).
In 1999 Consadole was on the verge of bankruptcy . A mountain of debt of 33 million US dollars had been amassed by player transfers. For this reason, the club refrained from further purchases and signed most of the players on loan, as this was significantly cheaper. Thus the bankruptcy could be averted and Consadole rose in 2000 to the J. League Division 1 .
The club stayed there for two years before being relegated from bottom of the table and again in debt in the nine-digit range in 2003. Consadole solved the crisis by selling well paid players.
In 2007 they became champions of J-League 2 and rose to J-League 1, but had to leave the league after only one season in last place. 2011 succeeded the renewed promotion to the first division, in which the team missed relegation again in the following season.
At the beginning of 2016 Consadole expanded its so-called "home town area" to the entire island of Hokkaidō; this was accompanied by an official name change to Hokkaidō Consadole Sapporo and an adaptation of the club's coat of arms. At the end of the same season, he made his fourth promotion to the J1 League .
The club plays its home games in the Sapporo Dome in Sapporo . The sports facility has a capacity for football matches of 41,484 spectators. The plant is owned by the city of Sapporo. The stadium is operated by Sapporo Dome Co., Ltd.
