In between the League and the Emperor's Cup (which actually was played in January 1968 in order to allow for a change of format for the next season), a special match pitting the JSL champions Toyo Industries against All Japan University Soccer Tournament winners Kansai University was played in New Year, 1968. It was a predecessor to the later Japanese Super Cup, which began to be played in 1977, by which time the university teams had ceased to be viable contenders to the Emperor's Cup.
