Tosu Futures (鳥栖フューチャーズ, Tosu Futures) was a Japanese football club that played in the former Japan Football League between 1994 and 1996.


PJM Futures was founded in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka in 1987 as the team of PJM Japan, a company based on Paul J. Meyer's U.S. academy Success (the company name came from Meyer's initials). The club moved to Tosu, Saga in 1994, changing its name to Tosu Futures. This happened one year after joining the former Japan Football League's Division 2 (which was merged into a single JFL division in 1994). Saga Stadium was used as a temporary home ground until Tosu Stadium opened in 1996. In January, 1997, Tosu futures caught the withdrawal of PJM Japan and was dissolved. In February, 1997, Sagan Tosu was established.
