They finished on 6-1, the same as Kwansei Gakuin Fighters, but won the tie-breaker having defeated them during the season. Kobe Ravens also reached the All-Japan Championship playoffs (in the West Japan side of the draw) with a 5-2 record, also the same as fourth placed Kansai Kaizers, but again had defeated them during the season. There were 4 divisions within Kansai Football in 2019 with Division 3 divided into two blocks and Division 4 into 3 Blocks making 7 Divisions/Blocks in Total.
