Vanraure Hachinohe (ヴァンラーレ八戸, Vanraure Hachinohe) is a football club based in Hachinohe, a city in the southeastern part of Aomori Prefecture in Japan. They currently play in the J3 League. The name Vanraure comes from the combination of two Italian words: derivante, meaning "origin"; and australe, meaning "southern". It thus refers to the origin of the club in the southern area of Hachinohe, in the former village of Nangō.

History

The club was founded in 2006 as a merger of two football clubs; Hachinohe Industry SC (八戸工業サッカークラブ) and Nango FC (南郷FC) and joined Tōhoku League Division 2 North. Since 2008 the club is aiming to become a professional club and join J.League. In 2011, because of Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, the two blocks of Tōhoku Division 2 temporarily merge into a single group, with no promotion, and Vanraure won the merged Division 2 title for the first time. In 2012 they were back to Division 2 North and they were only able to finish in second place to Ganju Iwate but won the promotion playoff against Cobaltore Onagawa, who were also promoted because Fukushima United gained promotion to JFL.

With the introduction of J3 League for 2014, the club applied for J. League Associate Membership in June 2013 [1] and got the approval in September 2013. [2] But because of the stadium not met the requirements yet, their J3 license has been postponed until next evaluation in 2014 and only can get promotion to J3 until 2015. [3]

Because left by some clubs to J3 League, JFL must select other clubs beside from the 2013 Regional League promotion series who have submitted applications. Vanraure selected as one of four clubs by application to get promotion and competed in JFL for the first time in 2014. [4] In July 2015, Vanraure won the Apertura Championship[ citation needed ] but lost to Clausura champion Sony Sendai FC on penalties in the two-leg championship stage after a tie on aggregate.

After a couple of attempts, Vanraure finally got promoted to J3 League in 2018: they achieved a 3rd place behind Honda FC and FC Osaka, a sufficient result to unlock a pro-spot for 2019. [5]
