With just a few days to go until the Nagoya Basho starts, here are the scorecards for the Makuuchi and Juryo divisions.
For those wondering why rikishi who have gone kyujo before the scorecards go out, there is a reason. I goal is that these documents are not just scorecards, but also a form of a banzuke for those who like to keep their own records of the changes in sumo from basho to basho. I also keep a rikishi’s name on just in case they were to join part way through a basho. For these reasons. every scorecard will have a spot for each rikishi ranked on the official banzuke, and only in the most special of circumstances (ex: Takanoiwa) will their bracket be changed.
Here’s hoping that you keeping score at home and that we get another exciting Basho!
