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.
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.
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.
Mega League aspires to be the most-watched sports property in the region, and we project that it can generate annual Broadcasting Revenues of over 200 million EUR per season.
Mega League will set the stage for some of the fiercest rivalries in football, aiming to bring the fans back to the stadiums. At the same time, the clubs will acquire the resources to invest in bigger and better facilities.
Mega League will allow football clubs from the region to attract multinational sponsorship contracts and significantly enhance their merchandising business.
AWe are a non-profit organization that relies on voluntary contributions to realize our project. We are called Mega League Foundation.
AWe want to establish a transnational league for the best football clubs of Southeastern Europe. We call it Mega League.
AIt will create one of the most interesting and contested sports competitions in the world. It will significantly improve the financial performance of the participating clubs and will increase the quality of football in the region.
AYou can contribute to the success of the project in many ways:
AWe aim to hold Season 1 of Mega League in 2020/21.
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.
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.
