On April 22nd, AKB48 revealed the details on their pennant race 'AKB48 Group Pennant Race ~AKB48 Group wa Kisoiatte Migakareru~'.

The team shuffle, which was announced back in February, went into effect on April 22nd with NMB48's new Team BII's 'Saka Agari' performance. To coincide this occasion, AKB48 group general manager Kayano Shinobu wrote on their official blog, "We've made you wait for a really long time. We would like to begin the pennant race, which was announced last year."

The participants of the pennant race will be all 12 teams of the AKB48 group. They include Team A, Team K, Team B, Team 4, Team S, Team KII, Team E, Team N, Team M, Team BII, Team H, and Team KIV. It will be held from April 22 to October 31. Teams can accumulate points from 1. scale factor of member applications during AKB48 Theater performances, 2. handshake event ticket sales, and 3. the number of votes obtained during the General Elections. The team with the most points will win the race.

A website for the pennant race will be launched in the coming days. The amount of points and the team ranking will be updated in real time. Beside the team race, members will also be evaluated for their hard work.
