Central European Regional League

In the Croatian media there has been plenty of talks about having a sort of league involving some central European countries in a tournament because the clubs in these countries don't go far into Europe. In many interviews with Croatian players playing abroad they have said this is a good idea.

Croatia, Slovenia and Hungary have done it with hockey and its improved all three countries in hockey, especially Slovenia. In basketball Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Slovenia have a regional league, the crowds come for violence though more than basketball but its expected.

Here is the purposed plan:


a 12-16 team tournament, each country send their best 2-3 teams. The Croatian view is mixed, some don't like it, some do because our league is becoming the biggest piece of shit in Europe

I'm sure the quality of the league will be good.

What are you Slovakians thought about this? like it or not? Would Slovakians be interested in seeing Hajduk Split or Dinamo Zagreb (probably not p ) I'm sure these are not attractive names but can you see good crowds if the quality is good?

What is the average attendance for Slovakian league matches? is your league desperate for a fix?

many questions for this complicated league...

Central European spring Cup ? Why not, after winter break there are no central european teams involved in UEFA competitions. I´d go with play-off system.

Interesting idea. I think that could help the teams to improve when they play more often against better teams.

A simular league like this have been running in the Scandinavian countries for 3 years now (Roayal League, 4 best teams from Norway, Sweden and Denmark). I thought the idea was very good, but have not been a great sucses so far. Its been some kind of B-tournment, even too there is pretty much money involded the teams and suportes seams mostly to take it like a training matches so quality on the matches (many reserve players and poor pitch condition) and attendance is pretty low (averrange about 3,500 so far this season I think). And there is doubtfull that the tournoment will survive as it seams like the TV channals not will expend their contract. So with no TV rights, low attendance and very low prestice the tournment may seams to die after just a few years.

But condition for such league may ofcourse be better in youre region.

attendance isn´t important if ticket costs 1 eur or so. TV rights could bring more.
