    The Problem

    In the modern globalised world, clubs from smaller countries in Southeastern Europe have become football dwarfs. The limited financial resources they posses impact negatively their competitiveness, as homegrown talent constantly pursues better financial propositions.

  • icon

    The SOLUTION

    We offer a viable, long-term solution with the formation of a unified league for the top clubs in the region. This will create a level, contested environment, renew historic rivalries, and attract lucrative broadcasting and sponsorship deals.

    Mission & VISION

    Our mission is to promote this concept and to establish and administer Mega League. By utilizing the support of the millions of football fans in the region, we firmly believe Mega League could be formed by Season 2020/2021.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

02 teams & format

To ensure the most lucrative broadcasting deals and a gripping competition, the clubs in Mega League’s pilot season are pre-selected based on popularity, traditional rivalries, and other factors. Afterwards, Mega League will employ a fair promotion and relegation system.

  • 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 receive promotion to ML1.
  • At the end of each season the bottom 5 clubs from ML2 will be relegated to their respective top domestic 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 top domestic leagues will play in the ML Qualification Tournament to determine the 5 clubs that will be promoted to ML2 for the following season.

The best example to illustrate the proposed format for Mega League is the Italian League System. Mega League 1 will be just like Serie A in Italy. During a season (from July to May) each club will play the others twice (a 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 teams are relegated into Mega League 2 (like Serie B in Italy), and the 3 top teams from Mega League 2 are promoted in their place. The format of Mega League 2 is the same, but with 22 teams and 42 rounds.

The current first-tier national championships (like Superleague Greece, First Professional Football League in Bulgaria, Liga I in Romania, Serbian Superliga, etc.) will become the third football level in the Mega League System, like Serie C in Italy. The ML Qualification Tournament between the 40 best-placed teams from the top national championships 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 duplicated to other European regions, so several smaller countries can unite into one large market, which will create substantial economic value for their clubs.
