A Bosman for the Clubs

Football Future _ A Bosman For The Clubs
I have proposed a 10 weeks NPL Summer League tournament in 2021 from week 10 to week 20 to the SFA, SPFL & UEFA.

UK Competition Law from 1st January 2021 will prevail over ECJ and demand businesses (inc.football clubs) are able to conduct business in the UK for 365 days per year with no cross-border restrictions.

In 2013, we looked at six Scottish clubs taking the SFA to the Court of Session to force them into compliance with Competition Law.

Test Case

Scotland would have 4 regional leagues of 10 teams playing 9 home and nine away games. www.NPL-football.com    40 teams including 'Colt' teams from the six teams playing in England.  I liked Gordon Strachan's comment on Sportsound last week that . . .  ' Scotland already has 42 'B' teams . . . the problem is there are only 6  'A' teams.'

England would have 3 regional leagues with 8 teams from England and 2 teams from Scotland who have minimum 20,000 stadium capacities.
Aberdeen, Celtic, Hearts, Hibs, Kilmarnock and Rangers would each play 8 home games against English teams.

We await a reply from Ian Maxwell, Neil Doncaster and Aleksander Ceferin of UEFA. 

The time is now : the FA, SFA & SPFL must comply with UK Competition Law from Brexit Day on 1st January 2021. They have ignored EU Competition Law for over 20 years by referring the matter to UEFA and the ECJ . . which would have incurred expensive legal costs which scared us off in 2013.

A 'Bosman For The Clubs' first mooted in 2013 through my good friend Ampersand Advocate Eoghainn Maclean is back on the agenda.

The 10 week NPL Summer League will comply 100% with Competition Law.  A showcase for players/triallists without a Club and a test of the UK Football Governing bodies compliance with the Law.
However, this time it will be the FA/SFA/SPFL decision whether to take NPL to the Court of Session in Edinburgh to stop the cross border tournament, which would be unwise.

Six Scottish top clubs with suitable stadiums which meet the criterai playing top clubs home & away is just a start.  A new 20,000 'DeTa Stadium' in Dundee - ground-shared with United - would enable another two Scottish clubs to be admitted into the English Leagues in future.

The SFA threat that clubs, officials and players could face sanctions and fines or being kicked out of football is a bluff. Anti Competition practices preventing Scottish clubs moving to England have been illegal for the past 25 years.

The UK Football Governing bodies can no longer pass the buck to UEFA and the expense of taking disputes to the ECJ.

Also your geography is poor, you have the Liverpool clubs in the wrong part of England for a start. Good enthusiasm tho!

Pedantic Ghost . . . .

The locations are OK . . .  the borderline gaps are not.
