The 2015 Suruga Bank Championship (Japanese: スルガ銀行チャンピオンシップ2015; Spanish: Copa Suruga Bank 2015) was the eighth edition of the Suruga Bank Championship, the club football match co-organized by the Japan Football Association, the football governing body of Japan, CONMEBOL, the football governing body of South America, and J. League, the professional football league of Japan, between the winners of the previous season's J. League Cup and Copa Sudamericana.

The match was contested between Japanese team Gamba Osaka, the 2014 J. League Cup winners, and Argentine team River Plate, the 2014 Copa Sudamericana winners. It was hosted by Gamba Osaka at the Osaka Expo '70 Stadium in Suita on August 11, 2015.

River Plate won the match 3–0 to win their third international club title in 2015, after the 2015 Recopa Sudamericana and the 2015 Copa Libertadores (where they played in the finals less than a week before), and also became the first South American team to win this competition since 2009.

Format

The Suruga Bank Championship was played as a single match, with the J. League Cup winner hosting the match. If the score were tied at the end of regulation, the penalty shoot-out would be used to determine the winner (no extra time would be played). A maximum of seven substitutions may be made during the match.
