If tied on points, higher regular season position is tiebreaker
* Clinched Final 3 berth

Panasonic's injuries have killed them at the end of the season. With Shimizu in, Panasonic were the best team in the league, without not so much.

Going into Sunday's Final Round for the Final 6, the breakdown for the Final 3 spots and First Place is straight forward.

Toyota Gosei vs. Toray
Winner of the match will be in the Finals, but if match goes five and Toray wins, it will not matter as the teams will finish even on points and the first tiebreaker is regular season position and Toyota Gosei finished in 1st. So Toyota would advance to the Finals.
Toray wins in less than 5 sets, they advance to the Finals.

Suntory vs. JTEKT
Only one route is available to JTEKT, win in less than 5 sets. Any other result, Suntory clinches Final 3 berth.
Suntory cannot finish higher than 2nd due to Toyota already at 13 points.

Final 3 Matches played at the Shimadzu Arena Kyoto on March 11th and 12th after the women's matches which start at 13:08 JST (4:08 GMT)
Toyota Gosei Trefuerza vs. JTEKT Stings

Toyota was 2-1 against JTEKT in the regular season, and beat JTEKT in 5 sets in the Final 6
Toyota has played poorly in its last two games, both sweeps, and can it get the rest of the offense on track? Omrcen is their focus for scoring, but without some help it hurts them.
JTEKT is a little more balanced, and this is the first time that JTEKT has gotten this far

Final 3 and Final rules state that match points, sets ratio, points ratio do not matter.
Only wins. So if tied, a 25 point golden set

Both teams were even spiking and blocking.

March 19, 2017, Final Match 2 of 2

Toray Arrows 3-1 Toyota Gosei Trefuerza (25-20, 23-25, 25-16, 25-23)
Nikola Gjorgiev (Toray) 32 (1b), Haku Lee (Toray) 17 (6b, 1a), Takaaki Tomimatsu (Toray) 14 (3b), Yuta Yoneyama (Toray) 9 (1b, 3a), Yuji Suzuki (Toray) 3, Naonobu Fujii (Toray) 3 (1b), Satoshi Ide (Toray) L, Satoshi Umeno (Toray) sub 0, Hidetomo Hoshino (Toray) sub 0
Igor Omrcen (Toyota) 38 (3b, 2a), Shuzo Yamada (Toyota) 8 (2b), Takuya Takamatsu (Toyota) 10 (1b, 2a), Hirotaka Kon (Toyota) 4 (1a), Ryota Denda (Toyota) 4 (2b), Shohei Uchiyama (Toyota) 0, Koichiro Koga (Toyota) L, Issei Maeda (Toyota) sub 0, Hideaki Okamoto (Toyota) sub 0, Taichi Kawaguchi (Toyota) sub 0

Toray Arrows win their 3rd title, the first in 8 years

Toyota has always been focused on Igor, and sometimes he needs his teams help on offense. Today he did not get it. Igor 33/61, rest of Toyota 18/53. Nikola had half of his teams killed, so the rest of his team, picked him up. Plus Toray again won the battle at the net with 12 blocks to 8 for Toyota. Toyota did improve from the service line compared to Saturday being +5 (+1 ace, -4 errors (fewer)).

I think that Toray were justified winners, beating Toyota 4-2 over the length of the season.

I watched some games from the last Asian Club Championship recently and noticed that the Japanese participant was listed as Toyoda Gosei Trefuerza. Sure, this is not a question whose answer would change the world or would enlighten the ignorant volleyball fan, but I still want to know whether this difference to Toyota, as written here in the forum, is no coincidence. Is it just a matter of transcription? I thought that the team was named after the technology company, similarly to Hyundai Capital Skywalkers in Korea, for instance. Is it correct?

Sometimes I just shorten it to Toyota for simplicity. If you are on the men's page it is for Gosei. On the women's page it is Auto Body.

Toyota has many different divisions in the parent company. JTEKT, Toyota Gosei, Toyota Auto Body and Denso are Toyota Group companies. However their businesses differ.

JTEKT, steering components
Toyota Auto Body, minivans, SUV & commercial vehicles
Denso, automotive systems and spark plugs
Toyota Gosei, automotive components and parts

Each team is separate as are the business operations of the business. Does Toyota often buy from these companies, absolutely.

I am sorry, I should've made myself more clear. I didn't ask about their businesses, but rather about the name itself. Once it is Toyoda (FIVB, Wikipedia), here it is Toyota. That's what I meant. Thanks for the explanation anyways :)
