Susumu Watanabe, a former assistant coach, succeeded Arnold as manager.

Like the previous season, the 2016 campaign was split into two stages, with the first stage running from February to June, the second stage being held between July and November and finally a Championship stage in late November.

In addition they added both the J.League Cup and the Emperor's Cup to their trophy cabinet. The feat was made all the more incredible by the fact that Gamba were only promoted back to J.League 1 at the beginning of 2014 following a one-season spell in the Japanese second division.
