New competition format

There will probably come a new competition format in the Belgian first division.

They want to split up first division into 2 leagues of 12 clubs. At the end of the regular competition, the first 8 of league A will play play offs, while number 9-12 will play a new competition with the number 1-4 from league B

I support this idea. I think we have too much small clubs in first division so that would be a good improvement.

And I think it's a good improvement for 2nd division too because it will become more entertaining

This idea to be implemented from 2015/16 onwards?

or even sooner?


Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

Not sooner. The intention is 2015/16

The reason is because the TV contract is for sale next year and the clubs wants to receive money as much as possible. They think with this
formula it will be more attractive for TV stations.

What's at stake for 9-12 from A playing against 1-4 from B?

Also. This are 24 teams. Where will the other 10 teams go to?

Playing for promotion and relegation

They will have to play in a lower division.

34 clubs in first and second division is just too much for a small country like Belgium
