SPL clubs agree expansion of top division
Scottish Premier League clubs have unanimously agreed to pursue an expansion of the top division following a meeting at Hampden on Monday, reports STV Sport. STV understands the proposals will lead to the league inviting another 12 clubs into the existing setup.
The move would create two tiers of 12 clubs. The plans, revealed last week, would then see the two leagues split into three divisions of eight after 22 games.
SPL clubs will now meet again on December 3 with an indicative vote on the full plan likely to take place. The clubs have given full backing to change that would see the SPL expanded to include more teams, though no definitive timescale has been given for expansion.
The Scottish Football League has already revealed its own plans for reconstruction, which would differ significantly from the SPL's proposals.
SPL chief executive Neil Doncaster has said there is still a good working relationship between the governing bodies but stated the SFL plans were not on the agenda at the meeting of top flight clubs.
