Estonian FA president said this season will probably be the last for the Baltic League, citing the lack of interest from both fans and clubs as the reason for the failure of this competition.

thank god for that

it's just a pointless competition

if the winner would qualify for the Champions League 2nd or 3rd qualification round it would be different matter. but at the moment it's just a made-up cup with no real meaning.
