New 18 team “BeNeLeague” worth £350m a year nearing reality.

Belgium and Netherlands are in the process of merging to create an 18 team dubbed “BeNeLeague”. Belgium clubs voted “unanimously” in favor of the merger. This backing now opens a detailed talk about the concept.

“BeNeLeague” will feature the clubs from the Belgium league and Dutch Eredivisie. This super league will be worth £350m each year in TV rights.

All members of Belgium’s 25 Pro League backed this idea in their General Assembly.
The statement from the clubs said:


“The BeNeLeague must go hand in hand with the guarantee of economic stability for other professional clubs.

“That will come through the creation of a national first-division championship on the basis of sustainable licensing and competition rules.”

A £350 million value will make BeNeLeague the sixth-largest league in the world in terms of revenues. Both Eredivisie and Jupiter pro league gross around £70m per season.

Being sixth-largest means that the BeNeLeague will sit behind the top flights in the “Big Five” which includes England, Spain, Germany, Italy, and France.
