Vegalta Sendai will transfer ownership of its women’s side to sponsor Mynavi, the J. League club announced Monday, in a decision intended to protect the future of both teams in the wake of the economic impact of the coronavirus.

In a statement, Vegalta cited a steep drop in expected revenue due to the coronavirus, which caused the J. League to suspend its season for four months and has forced clubs to play in front of significantly reduced crowds in an effort to prevent infections.
