Atlantic League


Recommended Posts

A while ago, some of the top teams from Scotland, Portugal, the Netherlands and Belgium were talking about setting up their own league. I know UEFA weren't keen, but would it not be quite a good idea?

 

A league with these teams, say:

 

Celtic

Rangers

Hearts

Hibernian

Aberdeen

AZ

Twente

Ajax

PSV

Feyenoord

Porto

Sporting

Benfica

Braga

Nacional

Aderlecht

Standard Liege

Club Brugge

 

Could it compete with the other European leagues, in terms of revenues and attracting players?

 

What if they jib UEFA, and forego their right to compete in the Champions League? (If the Atlantic League was attracting a lot of attention, surely UEFA would come crawling to them eventually anyway?)

 

Lastly, could they refuse to be governed even by FIFA? What's to stop them going it completely alone if they feel like?

 

I know this is from the NYR school of completely speculative threads, but I was reading about it and it struck me as interesting, at least.
