Twelve SPL clubs will meet on the 20th of December to decide the future of Scottish football. The plans are to create a two-tier SPL of 10 teams each. Included in the reconstruction are the return of play-offs, an earlier start to the season and a winter break.

Out with the two leagues of ten the other teams in the country would be regionalised, which is probably the best thing being proposed in the current plans.

Talks of change have been ongoing for years now and people always find it hard to agree on what is best for Scottish football to move forward. Things need to change if the league is to move forward, moving from 10 teams from 12 is surely a step backward, the league has tried 10 teams before and the quality was pretty much the same as it is now. What’s changed really?

It would make more sense to increase the size of the top division and come inline with other divisions around Europe. Moving to 16 or 18 teams would mean less games, the winter break would be easier to incorporate and it would surely freshen up the league in a few different ways.
