your thoughts?

 

If Yes should it be regionalised on

a:-  East west basis?

b:-  North to South basis?

I considered it before, but I don't think it's a good idea.

I think a West of Scotland league is required to go along with South of Scotland, East of Scotland and Highland leagues would be good.

Absolutely yes and it should be North / South. Midweek league games between part time clubs doing 600 mile round trips is just madness!!

wheresoeverwhensoever and howsoever we are called upon to make our exit. We shall do so as free men.

Regionalisation of the SPFL's league 1 and league 2 would mean in more Forfar v Arbroath type matches and less Berwick rangers Elgin city type of matches.

 

Whether that is a good or bad thing I will let you be the judge of it!

 

it would certainly reduce the level of resources required to get to away matches in the season for clubs (in the bottom tier(s) of senior Scottish football).

 

would more local derby's increase crowd number at matches in the bottom tier?

"I believe the lower leagues should be regionalised. Travelling near the length of the country, like to Elgin City-Berwick Rangers (a round trip of 471.5 miles) in front of paltry crowds is farcical (especially if it was a midweek fixture),"

Rationalization
"The Scottish Professional football League [SPFL's] league 1 & League 2 must be permanelty regionalised now. Travelling near the length of Scotland, like for the fixture Elgin City v Annan/Elgin City v Annan (a round trip of 519 miles) in front of paltry crowds is (especially but not just if it is a midweek fixture) farcical"! 
 
Far better to have more local fixtures like Forfar v Monrose /Montrose v Forfar type of fixtures (involving a small(er) round travel tip of 17.5 miles) as it is more attractive easier/achievable option for fans (of both clubs) to get to at any time of the week.  
 
The burdensome resources required with travelling the near length of Scotland (especially but not just for part time and amateur teams) to away fixtures in the SPFL is the main reason why the likes of Brora Rangers FC would rather remain in their local (regionalised) Highland league and do not want to be part of the Senior SPFL League set-up. 
 
 
All for now guys.

I voted no.

If regionalisation of the league happened I would suggest that three teams would have to be promoted/relegated into the Chamionship. The two winners plus 1 more from playoffs. I think three is too many in and out of the Championship (a league of only 10 teams).

 

Maybe it could work with 14 teams in the Championship, playing each other 3 times (3 up and down with the League). The League would be 2 divisions of 8 (east/west or North/South). Teams play the other teams in thier division 3 times, teams in the other division twice. (37 games). Winniers promoted, teams finishing 2/3 into the playoffs for third promotion spot. Does not eliminate long travel, but it is reduced a bit (if that is the objective).
