From the Asian Champions League website, with my bolding added -
Group F
Arema Malang (IDN), Ulsan Horang-i (KOR), Tokyo Verdy (JPN), Thai Tobacco Monopoly (THA)

Group G
Shanghai Shenhua (CHN), Persipura Jayapura (IDN), Provincial Electricity Authority (THA), Dong Tam Long An (VIE)

Arema Malang and Persipura Jayapura of Indonesia and Thai Tobacco Monopoly and Provincial Electricity Authority of Thailand were later disqualified from the competition for failure to submit their squad lists by the deadline. That left Group F and Group G with only two teams each.
These were the only two Osaka Orangeaid Concern-type teams in the entire competition and now they're not playing.

Although, now that I look at it, Shanghai Shenhua sounds like a company team, and when you think about it, I don't really know what many of the team names mean.

But, hey, it tickled my fancy.
