The headline figures are that the Football League proposes to change from three divisions of twenty-four clubs to being four divisions of twenty, and that the League Cup and the Football League Trophy will be retained in some form or another. The proposals already have the “in principle” support of the both the Premier League and the Football Association, so there’s no need for the Football League to worry about what obstacles they may come across there. Supporters, on the other hand, seem fairly low on their list of priorities, as can be seen from their list of objectives from the entire exercise, which are listed as:
– To maximise the number of weekend/Bank Holiday league fixtures;
– To remove where practical fixture congestion and scheduling conflicts;
– To protect/improve financial distributions/income generation for Football League clubs;
– To maintain the Football League Play-Off Finals as the last event of the domestic season.
