Fox Sports Japan Inc. (Japanese: Fox Sports ジャパン株式会社) was a joint venture between Fox International Channels Japan (a subsidiary of FOX Entertainment Group),[1] which owned 60% of shares, and TV Bank (a subsidiary of SoftBank), which owned the remaining 40%. Established in 2012, the company produced televised coverage of sporting events for FIC Japan's television channel, Fox Sports and Entertainment (FSE); certain coverages were also broadcast on Fox and/or Fox Movies Premium in the event FSE was met with scheduling conflict.[2][3][4][5]

The company mainly produced the coverage of the home games of Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks baseball team, but it also produced coverage of other events.[6]

In December 2014, it was announced that Fox Sports Japan Inc. would wind up its businesses after two years, and FIC Japan would subsequently oversee the production of sporting event coverages.[7][8]

On August 1, 2015 Fox Sports Japan website moved from its own domain to Fox International Channels website.[9]


The company produced the televised coverage of the following sporting events that were shown on Fox Sports & Entertainment (with some being shown only on Fox, and vice versa).[10]
