Several players, such as Alex and Ahn Jung-Hwan, left the team, and were replaced by good players, but just not as good. As a result, the team finished at the fourteenth place and didn't win any cup, making it the worst season so far. The arrival of Korean striker Cho Jae-Jin would happen to be useful though.
The same uniforms as 2002 and 2003 were used one last time. The sleeve sponsor changed and J-Oil Mills was replaced by Suzuyo, which would become the main Shimizu S-Pulse sponsor soon after that.
