HPNXmas – Japanese Professional Sporting Team Names and Logos, Ranked

The 12 days of HPNXmas is our way of giving back over the holiday period, and providing a place for some of our thoughts that didn’t get run for whatever reason during the year.

Japanese Professional Sporting Team Names and Logos, Ranked

Teams have been selected from Japanese professional and semi-professional sporting leagues, including Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, American Football and Rugby. Not all teams have been ranked – the Kintetsu Liners are considered to have a “replacement level” name. All names below that are considered “ordinary” or worse.

Some substantially weirder names exist at the amateur level, for which we invite you to peruse this post.
