The Precedent


Recommended Posts

Oh no! Belgium has said teams can't be relegated before the season is finished.

Dens is going to be rocking for the first UpDoon Derby of the new season. 

---------------------

The SPFL have been given a legal warning from Belgium, after Waasland-Beveren's relegation was overturned.

Hearts and Partick Thistle will go to SFA arbitration after the early end to the season saw them relegated with games still to play.

With the season due to start on August 1 it could throw the Premiership into crisis, with Dundee United on the other of the arbitration process after winning promotion.

And the SPFL now face a worrying precedent after the Belgian Court of Arbitration for Sport overturned the decision to relegate Waasland-Beveren.

On May 15 the season was declared over based on the table as it stood, with Club Brugge declared champions.

But Beveren challenged that and the CBAS has now quashed the decision.

In another worrying echo for Neil Doncaster and Co, the Belgian fixture list had already been published.

Club spokesman Martijn De Jonghe said: "We never lost hope.

"It's a small victory, even if we obviously don't know what's going to happen next."

It does give some hope but as the laws/rules are country-specific it's not likely that Hearts and Thistle can argue it's a precedence.  

Regardless, if they do win their case I can only see 1 solution being identified - promotion going ahead and no relegagtion so a 13-team league. 

Let's see.
