Even a proposal for new format: 14 1A-clubs and 12 1B-clubs
Belgian football The competitiehervorming announces itself as a very hot potato for the Pro League. Even though that according to sources, certainly not next season. Now there is a plan for 1A with 20 clubs in 2020-2021 on the table. Or can Herman Wijnants are format 14-1A and 12-1B-clubs push?

chasing manager of Westerlo will find a first class of twenty clubs not smart: “Then, there are 4 of the 24 professional clubs. They are in the amateurklasse without tv money and big sponsors are doomed to fail. And then, there is no second class more, that you will see nowhere else in Europe.”

He proposes an alternative formula of 14 clubs in 1A and 12 clubs in 1B and considers hearing to find at other professional clubs. “1A wants less match. In a 1A-series with 14 clubs playing 26 matches. The first six games in PO1 for the title in ten matches. The last eight out of 1A will play 14 matches, two of clubs, bags, and possibly the first still European can play.” 12 1B-clubs play the first 22 games. “The first six games after ten duels for two promotietickets. The last six drops one club to the amateurs.”


He regrets that a previous plan of him no green light was given, with the first two series of twelve clubs, and after the winter break three sets of eight. In which format would be more clubs can take a bite of PO1, with eight clubs. The tension in PO2 would increase with the last 4 teams from 1A and the first 4 teams from 1B that after the winter break to compete for promotion and relegation. The larger doorstromingskans would be 1B more attractive, as 1B well covered by the tv money. Wijnants: “The K11 was against that plan because 1A four clubs would lose.”
