Re: Scottish Football reconstuction

It is looking like the SFL and SPL will be going with the 12-12-18 format so here are the main points of this proposal:

  • SPL proposal is for a 12-12-18 structure
  • Top two leagues to split into three leagues of eight after 22 matches then play a further seven home and seven away games
  • Leagues will be called Premier Division, Championship and National League
  • Top eight teams to play for title and European places; middle eight to contest promotion and relegation in and out of Premier Division; bottom eight to decide who drops into National League
  • 11 out of 12 SPL clubs need to vote in favour of plans, while the proposal requires approval of 23 out of 29 SFL clubs as The Rangers F.C. ltd (NEWCO) will not get a vote.
  • One league body to replace SPL and SFL : SPFL - Scottish Profesional Footbal League
    A model of the new 12-12-18 proposal
  • Stadium Criteria will be relaxed so the 6000 stadium capacity and artificial surfaces ban will be scrapped.
  • As seen in this document found by BBC Sport Scotland It will eventually include a pyramid structure.
  • The SFL may want to change the 12-12-18 to a 12-12-10-10 so that there is more meaningful games. 
  • Edinburgh City and Spartans would be the new clubs.
