TALKS IN PRAGUE ON CZECH-SLOVAK LEAGUE
CMFS (Czech football association) and SFZ (Slovak football association) held the first formal talks on the idea of a combined Czech-Slovak league on Thursday in Prague.
Among the Czech clubs reportedly interested in developing the idea are Sparta Praha, Slavia Praha, Teplice, Banik Ostrava and Tescoma Zlin.
The biggest obstacle to the creation of a Czech/Slovak league remains UEFA, who have blocked all similar projects in the past.
Even if it were agreed and approved, however, a revival of Czechoslovakia’s old federal league would be several years away and big commercial and financial issues would still need to be addressed.
