There are many excellent teams in the League of Dutch and the League of Bijia, but the overall strength of the league is insufficient, which affects the competitiveness and commercial development of the league. According to Dutch media international football, the Netherlands and Belgium are considering merging their top leagues and naming them beneliga. The new league will include 10 Dutch teams and 8 Belgian teams, with two promotion and demotion places each season, one for each team.
Eleven Dutch and Belgian clubs, including Ghent, AJAX, Anderlecht, arkmar, Bruges, Utrecht, Feyenoord, Eindhoven, ghenke, Standard Liege and Vites, have recently commissioned Deloitte & Touche Tohmatsu to conduct a survey on the merger of the two leagues. If the leagues are merged, the new leagues are expected to receive annual television broadcast revenue Up to 400 million euros, which means the new leagues revenue is second only to the five major European leagues. At present, the total broadcasting revenue of Dutch league and Bijia League is only 80 million euros per year.
To get more income and attention, it is obvious that many strong teams in Holland and Belgium are looking forward to it. We hope to form a new league together with Holland, which is to narrow the gap with the five major European leagues, said Bart weilheig, President of Bruges, who is the chairman of the league. It could happen very soon, and if it wasnt for the start of next season, it would certainly be. Above all, we are working in this direction, but we cannot set a deadline.
FIFA also organized local Dutch fans to vote on whether to support the merger of the two leagues. 47% of the fans supported it, 46% opposed it and 7% were neutral. International football reporter Peter - Wei Jin said that only with the support of the fans, the formation of the benneliga League has the possibility of success.
