On today's Explained, we take a look at the proposed merger between the Dutch Eredivisie and Belgian Pro League, and discuss whether this could be the first of many cross-national leagues in world football!
On the 16th March, the Belgian Pro League confirmed that 25 of the country’s biggest football clubs had voted unanimously in favour of exploring the possibility of establishing the BeNeLiga, which would see the best sides from Belgium and the Netherlands come together to form a new, cross-border league.
While Dutch clubs are yet to hold such a vote, there have been discussions since 2019 between six clubs from the Eredivisie and five from the Pro League over the possible merger, and if it becomes a reality, it will hold big ramifications for football in the region and beyond. It would likely see the dissolvement of the Eredivisie, which has run since 1956, and the Pro League, which was established in 1895, bringing an end to over a century of footballing tradition in both countries - a situation many fans don’t want to see happen.
However, it also promises a higher quality, more competitive league, in doing so bringing in more money through television revenue, and with the hope that clubs like Ajax, PSV and Club Brugge will challenge more consistently in Europe, having seen their standing in continental competition decline in the decades since the establishment of the Champions League. It’s also been seen as a reaction to the looming spectre of a European Super League, and the drastic changes to the Champions League which come into effect from 2024.
But how would the BeNeLiga work? Is it really needed? And could this be the first of many cross-national leagues? Let’s find out..

Do you think the BeNeLiga is a good idea? And are there any other leagues you'd like to see merge?! 👇

As a Dutchmen i'm not against a plan of a BeneLeague, but i'am afraid how the effect will be for the smaller clubs in Belgium & The Netherlands Couple of other ideas: - Alps League(Austria & Switzerland) - Balkan League(Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, North-Macedonia) - Baltic League(Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) - CzechSlovak League(Czechia, Slovakia) - Hellenic League(Cyprus, Greece) - Scandanavian League(Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden)

In my opinion it’s a great idea. Divide each league in half. Top half of teams of both countries comprise the first tier of the BeNe league, and the bottom Half comprise the 2. BeNe league. With teams from second tier football, they could make a sort of playoff in which top teams qualify to a mini league against top teams from the other country. 3 tier teams should just stay in their country and play in a regional Belgian or regional Dutch league.

If this idea Will be worker out I think there Should also be a Second beneleague where the smaller clubs Could fight for promotion to the Beneleague 1. Also I think there should be 20 clubs so there Will be more matches between the two different countries. And for promotion to the Second League Just use the keukenkqmpioendiviesie and the Second Belgisch league. Also for degradation from the beneleague 1 switch op 4 teams each year so there Will be much more variation.

I think there’s an easier but sly way Celtic and the ’gers can get into the English premier league. Buy a team in England in ideal location at as cheap a price as possible that won’t cost a fortune to raise up through the leagues. Set up a youth academy to start cranking out talent to either sell off or keep if they’re looking like they have high potential. Naturally they’d wanna rebrand them as town/area name Celtic or Rangers with identical club crests. If it worked and the English division was to become self sustaining then it could rise through the ranks borrowing talent from the parent club until the team is in the prem when the best players can make their way over from Glasgow into the more lucrative EPL. The Glasgow team could keep going in parallel. But of course the better way to do it would be for both leagues to create a merged league and make sure it combines the European competition slots for both countries. There are already enough teams jockeying for top 7 they don’t need or want wealthy scotsmen cutting their lunch

A scandinavian super league (denmark x sweden x norway) would also make sence for higher competition. Italy, england, germany, france and spain dont need to collaborate with someone else, but smaller neighboring contries would benefit like austria and swiss or benelux (including Luxemburg) But it make sence why that dont happened so fast, because is the sacrifice of the own tradition.

It wouldn't be good if they don't include Antwerp ... They have the biggest potential ! Club Brugge is just peaking because the competition is weak at this moment ! Anderlecht and Standard Liège are on the edge of bankruptcy ... Don't forget club brugge is only good the last 5 years , they have been shit for more than 10 years ... If anderlecht and the other big boys would be in shape , they wouldn't have played so much CL = less money = less growth ....

If this were to move forward, I think both countries would have to fully merge their football pyramids. Beneliga 1, 2, 3 etc. Any other way would be an organizational mess. Then your domestic cup competitions would hold another level of importance.

Eredivisie will keep existing after BeNe Liga. It will serve as the promotion/relegation platform and will produce the yearly Dutch champion. You could more or less compare it to what happened to the championship when the premier league was established.

This is 100% a good idea for football in the Low Countries. This would allow the BeNeLiga to at least start knocking on the Big 5's doorsteps. With good development and investment, it could easily turn Europe into the "Big 6" Leagues. This would also give the big teams like Ajax more competition domestically to help them improve their quality and ability to keep talent when it came time to compete in Europe. Considering this would also act as its own publicity since it's such a cool, new change, I'd also wager that the hype alone will drive up profits as the league gets started. Hell, I'd start paying closer attention.

And PSV lost to KAS Eupen, a low ranked team in Belgium, last year. 1 game doesn't mean anything and it was probably a friendly. The Belgian league has also been ranked higher than the Dutch league for years and Belgian teams have performed better in Europe than the Dutch teams, aside from Ajax. So, overall, both leagues are around the same level.

Instead of making a league, why not make it a tournament-like competition? All 18 teams from both domestic leagues playing in knock out rounds with double fixtures. It would be 7 games max for teams that reach the final, give a boost in revenue for all teams, and theoretically make both leagues more competitive because of the increase in revenue. It isn't exactly a merger, but could become the start of one. Think of the rivalry that can start between the top clubs in each league. Plus, I don't think any club would dismiss the opportunity for more silverware

@Dean Does Stuff I'm just talking about overall quaility which the national team gets players from clubs inside the country and u can name alot more dutch players who played in the dutch league at one point or another compared to the beglain league lol. All im saying and ive said this on another vid, imo the dutch league is the alpha in the this convo and personally i dont see why they would want to give that up and merge with another league instead of doing ur own thing.
Dean Does Stuff

@TypicalNew Yorker What does the national team have to do with this ? Belgium has 13 world cup appearances ( which is more than the Netherlands ) 6 Euro appearances, Olympic Gold in 1920, Third place at the Euros in 1972, Second place at the Euros in 1980, Fourth place at the world cup in 1986 and Third place at the world cup in 2018. So, Belgium also had some great achievements, but that doesn't have anything to do with this. In recent years, the Belgian league and clubs have been better in Europe than the Dutch clubs, aside from Ajax. Even on the ranking, the Belgian league was ranked higher than the Dutch league for almost a decade. Yes, the Dutch league is historically superior, but that's all in the past, in recent years, they are both around the same level.
TypicalNew Yorker

Anderlecht has always been the best/most successful Belgian club in history ( with 5 European trophies ), but it's a fact that Club Brugge has been dominating the league for a few years now. Club Brugge also reached the quarter final, semi-final and final of the Champions league and Europa league a few times in the past, so yeah, they are not as big as Anderlecht, but they did have some good results in the past. During the 70's and 80's, both Anderlecht and Club Brugge were ranked among the top 10-15 best European teams.

What about a concept like in the MLS with 2 divisions? You could actually just take both leagues (18 teams each) and just make them into 2 divisions. A Dutch and Belgian division. They’d all play against the teams in their division once and half the teams of the other division (randomly chosen) also once. So 26 matches in total if I’m not being stupid. Home and away matches would just change every season so for example if Ajax plays against PSV in one season at home, the following season they’d play at PSV. At the end of the season the top 8/4 teams of both divisions would play in a playoff format until the ultimate champion is decided in a final. So at the end you’d have 30/28 matches in total which will still result in fit teams, able to compete international as well as having both leagues remaining with all 36 teams and still somehow having the feeling of playing in the eredivisie/Jupiter pro league

Football historians: How was East German teams incorporated in Bundesliga? About Regional leagues: they seems as a good idea, especially if national leagues in region are weak. Like Scandinavia, Baltic or even some sort of Central Europe (like Poland+Czechia+Slovakia), or Alpine league (Switzerland+Austria+Lichtenstein and throw in one club from Sanmarino to have more competitive league for those small countries). Only problem is that there should be at least two tier system for geographic leagues. Maybe second tier could be played inside nations and then play-off system to save costs.

In late 2019 and early 2020, there had been discussions between League of Ireland (Rep of Ireland) clubs and Irish Premiership (Northern Ireland) clubs about an All-Island League. The talks went pretty far with an analysis done by HyperCube who had pretty good projections if it happened. The IFA in the North have said they will never agree to a full brand new cross-border league, so the most likely one to happen is an MLS-style where both leagues compete under an All-Island Final Competition (like East and West Confrences and then the MLS Finals).

I would not care if the price for something went up slightly if I knew that the quality of the product or service (the entertainment of the match) would increase. I'd say that the BeNeliga serves well. For the lower divisions, the can have the league winners promoted with a playoff system combining the second tier of Belgium and Holland for the third spot. Obviously not perfect but this took two seconds to think of.
