[Image: _61084430_spl.jpg]

Scottish Premier League clubs say they have unanimously agreed to pursue an expansion of the top flight.
Representatives of all 12 clubs met at Hampden to discuss reconstruction, in response to recent proposals from the Scottish Football League.
SPL clubs will meet again on 3 December to debate the matter further.

RE: Scottish Premier League
I think expanding the first division would effectively kill the lower Scottish divisions.

The SPL (Scottish Premier League) was founded in 1998 as a breakaway from the SFL (Scottish Football League) but as with the leagues in England there was still promotion and relegation between the two.

In 2013 the SPL and SFL were (re)merged into the SPFL (Scottish Professional Football League)

Scotland is building a Pyramid system that includes the Highland and Lowland leagues that in theory would allow a team to move from the bottom tier to the top.

The only real threat is Celtic and Rangers moving to The English league (unlikely) or a pan-European league (slightly more chance)

I was just suggesting that expanding would cause the 2nd division to have much less interest and be less profitable.

I see, yes that would be true, outside of the big two you only really have a big(ish) support in Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen. The larger the top tier the less likely you'll have any of these teams relegated.

With little TV money the smaller teams get a financial boost when a big boy drops down.
