    Default FM 2008 ~ No J League !!

    Playing FM 2008 & I've noticed there's no Japanese league. What happened? Is it on FM 2009?

    This is my first time here. so here I am.

    I don't think the J-League has been in any of our games since CM 03/04

    Well that's a pity. Can be a pretty exciting league, though.

    To be honest, I never knew this.

    Are any other leagues excluded totally? Or does the OP mean there is a Japanese National League but it isn't licensed as the J-League?

    I see. Why is this? Considering they create an un-licensed English Premiership and un-licensed European competitions etc I just find it interesting.

    Apologies if I'm asking pointless questions.

    Because another company own the license to the league it cant be included. I am no legal expert but I would guess that the copyright means the league system, teams and players cannot be used at all by any other company.
