On the first day of the competition, the nine teams will be divided into three groups of three teams to play the first round. On the second day, the first place team from each group and the team with the best result among the second place teams will advance to the final round, where the winner will be decided in a knockout format.

In Group B, AIC Seagull Hiroshima Ladies (Chugoku/Hiroshima), who have finished third in three consecutive tournaments, Libero Tsugaru SC Fiore (Tohoku/Aomori), who are making their first appearance in the national tournament, and Nagaoka Joias (Hokushinetsu/Niigata) will be competing for a place in the final round.
Group C consists of Hioki Seagulls FC (Kyoto/Kagoshima), who are making their first appearance in the tournament since the 8th edition, FC Story Tokushima Menina (Shikoku/Tokushima), who are making their second appearance in the tournament, and three-time champions Jumonji Junior High School (Kanto/Tokyo), all of whom have competed in the national tournament before.

Will there be a new champion crowned, or will Jumonji Junior High win their fourth title? Please stay tuned for this tournament, which has produced many players who have gone on to excel in the world of women's football and futsal in Japan.
