    The Problem

    Lack of Competitive Balance is the single biggest problem of European football at present. The huge influx of Broadcasting money into the Top 5 Leagues has turned clubs from the smaller countries into competitive dwarfs. The small local markets of these countries constrain their ability to generate revenues, and they are unable to effectively compete for football talent.

    The SOLUTION

    We believe that the only viable and effective solution to this problem is the formation of a transnational league for the best football clubs of Southeastern Europe. This will create a much larger economic market with significant audience size, which can generate lucrative broadcasting and sponsorship deals.

    Mission & VISION

    Our mission is to promote the transnational leagues concept and to establish Mega League as soon as possible. We will work to get the support of the millions of football fans in the region, as well as the other important stakeholders - clubs, sponsors, broadcasters, national associations, and football governing bodies.

02 Teams & Format

To ensure the most lucrative broadcasting deals and an exciting competition, the clubs Season 1 of Mega League are pre-selected based on popularity, traditional rivalries, historical accomplishments, and many other factors. Afterwards, Mega League will employ a fair promotion and relegation system, which will allow any club from the region to reach the top levels.

  • At the end of each season the 3 worst-performing clubs from ML1 will be relegated to ML2, while the top 3 clubs in ML2 will be promoted to ML1.
  • At the end of each season the bottom 5 clubs from ML2 will be relegated to their respective top national league, and the top 5 clubs from the ML Qualification Tournament will be promoted to ML2.
  • At the end of each season the top 40 clubs from the national leagues will play in the ML Qualification Tournament to determine the 5 clubs that will be promoted to ML2 for the following season.

To illustrate the proposed format for Mega League we can look at the Italian League System. Mega League 1 will be just like Serie A in Italy. During the season (from July to May) each club will play the others twice (a standard double round-robin system), once at their home stadium and once at that of their opponents', for a total of 38 games. The 3 lowest placed clubs are relegated to Mega League 2 (like Serie B in Italy), and the 3 top clubs from Mega League 2 are promoted in their place. The format of Mega League 2 is the same, but with 22 clubs and 42 rounds.

The current top national leagues (like Superleague Greece, First Professional Football League in Bulgaria, Liga I in Romania, Serbian Superliga, etc.) will become the third level in the new Mega League System, like Serie C in Italy. The ML Qualification Tournament between the 40 top clubs from the national leagues will determine the 5 clubs to be promoted to Mega League 2 in place of the 5 relegated.

FUTURE

FUTURE GROWTH

THE BIG ELEVEN

Mega League concept can be applied to other European regions, so several smaller countries can unite into one large market, which will create significant economic value for their clubs.
