El Diego were formed in 2008 as the 2nd team of the big Diego FC family. They turned heads with their rapid promotion from division 3 in their first TML season with many tipping them to progress into division 1.
Momentum slowed down towards the end of their 2nd season and El Diego spent 7 seasons in division 2 before they finally progressed to division 1 for the first time. Since then they have only spent 1 season out of the TML top division. Their brother team Todai LB compete in the Tokyo Shakaijin League. There is also a 3rd team, ‘Don Diego’ for seniors. The family's very first Team Diego were founded in 1994 from Tokyo University alumni members. Although many from El Diego founding members still play for the team, new and younger players are joining each season. Football as a whole including quality of play, passion for winning and energy to have fun is what lacks in Japan's amateur football scene. If you can bring that to the team, come and join. The manager who is fluent in English and Spanish is waiting for you.
