Belgian Pro League clubs unanimously support the creation of a BeNeLiga.

The creation of a joint league between the Netherlands and Belgium has been discussed for years but has gained traction recently. In December, consultancy firm Deloitte calculated that the football economy in the two countries could grow by €300 million with the creation of a BeNeLiga.

On Tuesday, a statement was released by the Belgian Pro League with clubs in unanimous support of the BeNeLiga, “There is unanimous support to give the possible realization of the Beneleague every chance. This must go hand in hand with the assurance of economic stability for the other professional clubs through the creation of one national top competition.”

There is no exact format for how the league would take shape and it is unclear how the majority of Dutch club’s feel about it.
